To Chico or not to Chico...

Hey all - Don't post much but certainly buzz around a bunch. Anyway, I'm in the market for a creeker and contemplating a Jefe. Kicker is, I'm in that weird in-between weight and height range -- 155 lbs 5'11. I know I can get away with both the regular Jefe or the Jefe Chico but would like to know what your suggestions/input are. I've heard this boat performs better when loaded on the higher end of it's respective weight range.

Thanks all!

Definitely regular sized Jefe. I'm about the same size and think the boat fits great. Recall that you'll be loaded with a lot more than 155 by the time you have all your gear on, are wet, have you boat loaded with water, pin kit, spare paddle, etc.
