Remix 69 or 79

I'm 5'9" 170. Would I be better off in a remix 69 or size up to 79?

I'm 5'8" and paddled a 69 for 2 years @ ~200lb (me + my gear). Still the best boat I've had. Also the easiest boat I've ever rolled.

I would second the 69 but both boats will work for ya. I'm a similar size and I like the 69 because it's skinnier but I know smaller guys who paddle the 79 and like the extra volume and length. At our size self-supporting out of the 69 requires going extra light, but you can make it work as I've taken it down the Clarks Fork Box and it paddled great still. Forcing you to go extra light makes portaging it way easier also. For me I just have better control of the slightly smaller 69 but the 79 will be slightly faster and better when loaded.

Thanks for the help

Sweet thanks for the advice. Cause I was really wanting 69 since its a bit more narrow. And I have a stinger xp I use for self supports. But good to I can do a little packing still
