Long Legs

I am about 160lbs and have a 35in inseam. Playboats don't agree with me well, but I like to play. Are there any playboats that fit long legs without being ginormous for weight? I have an allstar, and I love it, but I cannot move the seat forward far enough to bow stall. I sit too far back and you can see how unbalanced I am. Any advice would be nice!!

Hey Jerey, at your weight and inseam, you will always struggle with bow stalling. You may just need to gain some weight. With those long legs you will probably never find a boat that is designed to make that happen. At 190 things would be much different. Or give up the dream of bow stalling. There's plenty of fun to be had in a kayak on a river without it. Current can work wonders. There are some things that physics just won't allow you to overcome.

The LL Biscuite has a bunch of legroom. Its also a bit on the slow side and seemed unusually hard to roll, could just be me though. Stern stalls look cooler anyway!
