better the 6 for strapless use?
For me personally, yes. I think the 5'8 works, but the 6'0'' will definitely be more surfable in terms of strapless. I weigh hmm, well down to 83kg now...but would you consider the 6'2'' global? Riding that board strapless is a dream..
The fish become a more much versatile board this year. They can hold a lot more power, which means wider range. It really digs well in in the bottom turns.
What waves will you be riding? If they have shape, I'd say consider the 6'2''..it doesn't have as good low end as the 6'0'' fish, but the board is a dream. Well, both of them are good, it just depends a little on the conditions you will be riding in. If low end is most important, yeah 6'0'' fish...btw I have my eyes on that board too....
