New to WWK. What boat to buy? Help.

Took a WW Kayak class at the university when I lived in Boise. Became proficient in eskimo rolls, even without a paddle, but never went further than the pool. Getting into it now since I live here in Colorado. What boat should I be looking for. I want to buy used. A boat several years old is fine with me. I am a beginner and I am 6' 2" and 210lbs. I need a large volume boat I think. Any thoughts, suggestions/recommendations on boats - make and model. What is a good boat for the money?

You didn't say if yur river runnin or playin or both.
Dagger Honcho
Wavesport big or super EZ
Perception Blaze the big one
Are all good older riverrunner/playboats

Right now Confluence Kayaks has some real good deals on older boats some of the like new.

Don't do anything, just stand there.

If you decide to go new I suggest the EZG. I am 6'5" and love my 60. I a also fairly new to WWK and this boat is great. Got the roll down and am working on stern squirts and bow stalls!

Dagger RPM Max for an Older boat.
Honcho is good or if Dagger makes a Large GT
Liquid Logic Hoss for a newer boat.
