my buddy Mike in blue river is the rep and he is 5'6" probably 150 i'm guessing and he boats the mystic and scud. Give me your email and I will email his phone number to yea. I have paddled a Huka for the last 4 years, not the fastest or lightest boat out there but it doesn't get stuck in holes either!
I just started paddling not to long ago and I have the Mini im 5'10" 120lbs everyone ive tlkd to about your size said the mystic is a little big for them so they decided to go on the mini but just demo them both and see what you like...
Howdy I am the guy friscofreeskier mentioned above. I would say you you could go either way on the mini or the regular Mystic. If you are still growing, paddle bigger volume, or self support kayak I would go with the regular. I have the regular Mystic or SCUD for demo. Give a shout if you want to try them out.
thanks guys for the input. . im just got up to alaska and there is mininal options for used boats so i might just try and pic up the mystic. i will mainly be creeking so im sure it will work out ( hopefully)
