If you are dead set on choosing between the 2 temperature ranges go with the -9 or colder just to be on the safe side. Somebody correct me if this logic is well.... illogical.

Either one will do. Unless you're in time trials or the Olympics.

Yeah...when in doubt, go with the colder wax.

The only time you'd want to err on the warm side is in slushy spring conditions when water suction is likely to be more of an issue than dry friction.
