185 lbs - Rockstar Large or Jitsu 6.0

Thoughts on either the 2014 or 2016 Rockstar Large of 2013 Jitsu 6.0 for someone who weighs 185 lbs and 5'9"? I find myself at the low end of the weight range for those boats for playboating. I am not going to be pulling some big air moves but I'd like to be able to bury the bow for some tricks.

The Jitsu 6.0 is a little smaller at 63 gallons (vs 65) and I can get a really good deal on one. Would a medium or 5.9 be a better choice?

I am the same size and weight and 10.5 feet. I have paddled the 5.9 and the medium 2016 rock star. I would go Medium instead of Large. You may want a ball when you want to really fly but for day to day I think you will be happier in a Medium. I ended up with a large Jed which is great for somethings but day to day is a lot to hoss around and a ball would achieve the same height.
