I paddled both. I'm 6'1 200lb. The superstar felt really big. I bought the jitsu and enjoy it. Seems the 190-200lb weight range sucks for a paddler. I tried a 5.9 jitsu and it was really really tight. The 6.0 is slightly too big, no where near as big as the superstar felt though.

Paddled both of these a lot last summer. I am 6' 1" 245lbs. The super star is an awesome boat. Great for playboating and using for down river. The Jitsu is a lot smaller which makes it a lot more responsive in the hole but if you are a bigger guy its a lot less stable. Its pretty short so it is easy to bury the edges. The jitsu I paddled also didn't stay super dry.

Super Star if you want to play and go down river. Dagger if you want a park and playboat.

Id also throwout the Jed L for a bigger guy wanting a high performance playboat.
