Remix 79 vs. Stomper 90??

Another what boat should I get post. 6'1" size 12 feet(maybe most important), and 200lbs +/- 10lbs. Looking to step up from class II-III+, to more III-IV. Mostly river running and some creeking. I'm currently just rocking my Jackson SuperStar down river, but the playboat just ain't cutting it anymore for what I'm looking to do. I was just wanting some opinions, looking at LL Stomper 90, LL remix 79, and maybe Diesel 80. No dealers here in BFE, Iowa to demo(or even sit in) different boats.. So I figured I would turn to the Buzz. Thanks in advance for your help

if you are going to focus on III/IV rivers the remix would be a fun boat. if you want to push it to the next level, and run some harder creeks, the stomper has the volume you will need to make it easier. the pyranha everest comes to mind as well. it may be a good option for you if you want to stick with a planing hull boat, but want some more volume.
size 12 feet would be fine in all of them. i am 6'1" and size 11.5 and fit well in the stomper and burn large (or everest).

Just got back from Ecuador. Paddled the Stomper 90 for a few days there on some Class II/III+ stuff. Very stable. Easy roll. Quick turns. Handles big crashing waves pretty well. Slower than #$&*. Frustratingly slow. I'm in the 6' 3" 280+ range with size 13+ feet. A very comfortable fit for all body parts. At first, it was like paddling a cork (very bouncy) because of the large volume. One gets used to that. That's my two cents. I also fit very comfortably in the 79. Haven't had one on the river yet.
