I'm 6'4" and 180, so I'm nearly your size. I went from paddling a Micro 240 for years, and bought an Embudo a couple of years ago to try something new and more durable. Plus, the comfort factor for the Micro was never great for me.
I liked the Embudo when I first got it- more comfortable for the legs, and loved the way it cruised through holes on a high water Upper Animas run. However, I personally found two problems with it when I brought it to steeper creek runs-
1. As Badkins said, the bow does not stay very high in the water and ptions are common. Like the teeth-jarring kind, when you're trying to punch through a small wave and instead of glancing off a rock it stops you cold.
2. The boat is very fast for a creeker- a little too fast in my opinion. During a Upper-to-lower Source run I couldn't keep from creeping up on my partners too fast while they were trying to pick their lines. I like to slow drop the drops and make small eadjustments mid-rapid to get the bow in the right spot.
It's probably more a factor of my own style and skill (or lack thereof), but it made me a little uncomfortable how the boat just gets on a track and makes it difficult to make those small adjustments.
It switched back to a Micro for half a season til that broke (3rd Pyranha boat with a crack under the seat- big surprise), and I finally picked up a Nomad 8.5 late this past summer. Love it- comfortable for my frame, boats smaller than it looks, resurfaces well, accelerated when I want it to and slows the rapids down for me. I have no opinion about the plastic as yet, as I haven't owned the boat very long. But as it stands now, if I had to buy a new one every year, I probably would.
