The $\chem{^{106,108}Rh}$ and $\chem{^{110,112}Ag}$ nuclei have been produced as fission fragments following the fusion reaction $\chem{^{28}Si}$ + $\chem{^{176}Yb}$ at 145 MeV bombarding energy and studied with the Eurogam2 array. The yrast high-spin states of these four odd-odd nuclei, which are observed for the first time, consist of rotational bands in which the odd proton occupies the $\pi g_{9/2}$ subshell and the odd neutron the $\nu h_{11/2}$ subshell. Their behaviour as a function of spin values does not vary with the number of neutrons: as observed in the odd- N neighbouring nuclei, the motion of the odd neutron remains decoupled from the motion of the core, from N = 61 to N = 65. Moreover, the staggering observed in the yrast bands of odd-odd isotopes is strongly reduced as compared to the large values displayed by the rotational bands built on the $\pi g_{9/2}$ subshell in the odd- A Rh and Ag isotopes. The results of particle-rotor calculations indicate that this reduction is related to a change of the core deformation.
