I paddled the blaze 7.1 and I am (was!) about the same weight and height. I got a blaze 7.3 as my first boat and wanted to try the smaller one. I think it was a damn good boat. I really like the hull and shape. Its stable, not too edgy, but a bit smaller volume so that you can get the ends underwater. Its certainly not a playboat, but its not a barge like the blaze 7.3 I still take the blaze 7.3 when I want a comfy boat to handle big water and get some big water surf though. The boats surf well and have pretty good outfitting. If you could get one, I think it would be a good boat.

I like the Blaze

I have the smaller size Blaze, the Blaze 6.9, and I love it. It is more river runner than playboat, but I am more of a river runner than a playboater. The boat is comfortable, easy to roll, surfs well, and with proper technique (which I don't have) stern squirts, spins, and cartwheels well. If you want a boat that leans more towards the playboat spectrum, I would pick a different boat. But if you want something that you will feel comfortable on class IV and is still somewhat playful, the Blaze is a good choice.
