Wife has 3,600 on her 2016 129" and loves it !! Prior to that she had the 120, found that squirrelly in the trail and my 137" pushed to much. The 129" is perfect and very trail friendly and adjustable.
why switch from the 120? I've only got this one season on the 129 and I miss how nimble the 120 was and the weight savings back to the 120 was like 50lbs so for a chick i'd stick with the 120 or if you must get that newer 129 at most.
why that excess track? is she gonna do crazy hill climbs, sidehilling, super deep powder play etc? if not and if not a lot of it stay 129 or less
as far as taking bumps go my 120 was sweet my 129 is even smoother but heavier to throw around, different to jump and way heavier in general to move around in the garage by hand, get unstuck by myself etc.
lighter is better, longer you go more it will push if you mostly trail ride which i do for sure
My girl friend wanted to ride my XRS 129 today she liked it but commented how her 137x felt more stable. She felt mine was loose in the back. I have a 1.5 lug she has 1.6
I know she will never want a shorter sled.
I can ride her 137 just as fast thru tight twisties as my 129 it gives up nothing. Off trail the 16x137 obviously floats better than 15x129
