A bit confused with this one guys....

I just bought a new 2010 sx trail that came stock with a 600# spring. I weigh a 195 without any gear, seems a bit soft? Picked up a 650# spring, and it doesn't seem to offer much improvement..any ride a 700#? What are you guys running for rear spring #? Any info would be much appreciated. Bike is primarily going to be used to ride Highland, Vietnam, Lincoln Woods, etc.

Thanks!

Just to give you a reference, I ride a 2010 SX Trail medium, and I have a 550 spring with the RC4 shock 7.875x2.25 at around 27% sag.

I am 160ish lbs with gear, so with your weight in the 205ish lbs range, I reckon 650 or 700 would be money. Just measure your sag with those 2 springs.
