I love my 60" EF Edge, it's been my fav for a couple of years now but I do like the idea of something with a little more snap and violence to it. I've been toying with the 60" MXS but I have the 48" and it's a great plane but just doesn't fit my style like an Edge so I am a little hesitant on the 60" MXS.
If you're debating between the EF edge and extra, I've owned both and I would say the edge is a great floaty 3d trainer, very predictable, very easy to fly. I preferred the edge over the extra, i felt way more comfortable, especially low and slow! The extra is a bit more advanced, while it doesn't slow down quite as well as the edge, it still does it well. Where the extra excels is in the tracking and snaps, they are very smooth and axial. I still have a lot to learn so I preferred the edge, but I think more advanced pilots would like the extra. I don't own either anymore since I discovered the slicks though, my 51 and 70 were my favorites! Either one is a great pick, just chose based on your flying style!
