I am the same size and weight and 10.5 feet. I have paddled the 5.9 and the medium 2016 rock star. I would go Medium instead of Large. You may want a ball when you want to really fly but for day to day I think you will be happier in a Medium. I ended up with a large Jed which is great for somethings but day to day is a lot to hoss around and a ball would achieve the same height.
