I've been trying to decide between the two for my next boat, and after paddling both I am going with a burn. It felt more sporty/responsive and slightly more stable, even though I liked the BA outfitting from LL more than the connect 30 from Pyranha. At the end of the day though both boats are fairly similar, and you should try both and go with what you liked best, not what anyone on the internet tells you is the better one.
I'm just looking to get down at a decent pace and finish this time around..

Thanks for all the advice fellas. I might just try to get a hold of a decent remix...

If you just want to race it then it won't matter what boat you are in. Show up in the boat that you are most comfy in. I would also second the notion that if you're worried about gorilla and a burn I would be worried abouu gorilla and any boat, especially a really fast long one. I've paddled a Corsica S on there quite a bit and it's no cake walk.
