I have a chance to get a mystic for a good price. My weight is 143lbs and I'm 5"10 with size 11 feet. Would this be good or should I go for something smaller?

I'm 5'8'' and 170lbs and I like mine. Its a good creeker punches holes and resurfaces well. It even surfs ok for a creek boat if you can find a big wave. Only thing I dont like is that its heavy but its seems very durable so its not a bad trade off.

I'm 150-155lbs, 5'6, it works fine for me. A bit heavy but it does not carry too well if you place the back band on your head. Thigh braces did into my skinny back. That aside it's a good boat.

I used to paddle a M Burn. The Mystic feels a little more forgiving than the burn, especially on turbulent eddy-lines. It is also a smidge wider than a burn, will feel a bit sluggish if you are used to paddling a burn or something with that much edge. But is by no means an unresponsive boat.
