Best starter hardshell

I'm looking at getting into hard shell kayaking. I have been running an IK and rafting for 10+ years so I am comfortable running rivers of most any size and class. I am looking to pick up a used boat to start so I don't have to break the bank. I was wondering what would be a good stable starter boat that would be good for running whitewater and learning a good roll. I am 5'9" and 160 lbs. Any feedback from experienced hardshellers would be much appreciated. thanks.

second. particularly considering your IK background, it's forgiving edges will be a good introduction.
