I actually paddled a T3 for four years. I am 5'7" and 155 and it was way to big for me and a T2 would have been better. I will say that its really not that bad of a boat and if its cheap can be fun. It all depends on your mind set. The upside is this boat spins and side surfs easily and has lots of bounce. Its actually a fairly comfortable boat with good foot room too. You will also need to develope a solid roll because its shaped like a cardboard box.
I bought this boat because its what I could afford. I will say that there are likely used ZG's, Project's, 420's, Kingpins out their that will take you further though and may not cost much more.
