MC, The Super may be a bit big, but it comes down to what you are going to use it for. Several of our team members that are your size are using the Super... but their interest is more NF Payette type deep water. In Colorado, we don't have much "big water" (well more so this year, but you know what I mean) if you are going to be more in classic Colorado creeks, then I would demo a Hero first then try the Super before you buy. My thought is that the Hero will do it for you. Great sporty boat that is not overly large (for our smaller creeks) and has more than enough volume to stay on top. Plus it's one of the the best gore boats out there (my humble opinion).
