well. I tend to put on a bit of weight over the winter (less climbing, more lifting). May be around 160 in a couple of months.

kind of bummed about being sold the large. sure I was eager, and ready to listen to advice (of a good shop as far as I know). Thinking back, the guy didn't ask my weight... just said a large would fit. Maybe they were eager to get rid of the 2012(2010) styles since the new burns came out this year.

Luckily, I guess, I don't have anything to compare it to

I made the leap as a small female paddler (150lbs) to paddle the large burn and am really happy I have. It definitely requires commitment and aggressive paddling, but gives a lot of confidence and stability because its not loaded down to the max. Along these lines the boat rides higher so te edges don't catch as much when you don't want them to, however they are very responsive when you commit to using them.
Being small in this boat really works on making you use you edge, if you don't there is no hope of controlling it, and forces you to become really aggressive.
The downside to being small in the boat is that I do find it harder to roll, but my bigger issue is I find it a lot more challenging to boof.
That being said I am very happy with the large and the extra confidence from it. When I start wondering whether I should have gone with the medium I remind myself that based on gallons (80 gallons) it's not such a huge boat

Wow! Thanks! Great input for sure.

It'll be fun learning how the boat works. I don't mind working a bit harder if necessary. I really like my experiences in the boat so far. I'm excited to get out there and get to it!

was talking to a SE boater who has a couple of friends that have paddled the new m burn and they said that it seemed smaller than the last one.
