Kingpin 6.1 or 6.2

Hi, new to kayaking this year and am looking for a play boat to play polo in. I've looked at the kingpin, the 6.1 is recomended for 80 - 140 , the 6.2 100 - 180 lbs. I am about 5'8"/5'9" and about 133 lbs. Am I better off being at the top end of a boats weight range or in the middle, I can get in both? What would be the diference in the way the boats handle? What am I not thinking of to ask because of a lack of experience?

Availability... I've been looking for a 6.2 to replace my lost Kingpin for almost two years and have not found one. Currently there's a 6.1 on the swap.
