Beginners Kayak for a whitewater canoe guy.

I'm wondering what kind of kayak I should buy. I've canoed whitewater for about 5 years back East, but had to sell my canoe to move to CO. So I'm looking for a kayak and I'm not sure what kind. I'm thinking a creek/river boat. Looked at a Jackson Villain, Dagger Mamba and Nomad, and Pyrahna Burn. Any suggestions??

All good boats. kinda depends what you want to run. If you get more specific about your size and what your expectations are, you'll likely get better feedback.

I'm 5'10" 160 and not really looking to get too crazy. Class IV and below, not really in to the play boating.
