No offense, but the Karma is the best boat ever and the ideal size for you. I am 5'5" and 155 lbs and the Karma S is big enough. Although, I customized the outfitting. Now the boat fits perfectly. The main thing is that the Karma is the superior performance boat. I am unsponsored and have kayaked for 34 years, owning and paddling many dozens of boats. Trust me, the Karma S would be ideal for your size and the best creek, river runner boat, hands down.
I have a review that 4 Corners River Sports (www.riversports.com
) will soon be posting on their Blog. It should help convince you. I will add some outfitting pics to this thread for you later. Until then, don't deny yourself the best boat, the Karma S. It should be your only consideration.
