I am getting back into the sport after several years break. I am 5'11", 150lbs. I learned to paddle a Savage Scorpion, similar to the Hurricane. I liked it because it was fast as hell, easy to roll, and boofing was easy, not to mention the gaining moves.

I dont know shit about these flat bottomed things, I was in a Beast years ago, and remember that they liked to stop, not punch, through holes. an I was a little intimidated by how short it was.

I am looking for a do it all boat. I live in Santa Fe, so the rio grande is probably where I will recut my teeth. I want to Play: cartwheel, flat spins, squirt, (not necessarily interested in all the arial new stuff, but then again, I mightr like it). I want a boat that tracks well, not a wobbler. I want something I can run some easy creeks in (have an old freefall if I really need it) if thats where the gang is headed. Something preferably less than 500 bucks.

Comfort is important too. I do not fit in WS boats, or Jacksons. I sat in a juice and thought it was a lazyboy. I am considering a Lil Joe, a juice, and the older infrared.

Any Suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks

For what you state you want to do, the Infrared and Little Joe will not work. Try the Dagger RX and see if that works for you rather than the Juice. But then again, if you want easy creeks the Little Joe would work great. The LJ does play a little but not very well. Looks to me like you will need 2 boats.
