Jitsu-ers - Size Help! (Sorry)
I'm in the market for a playboat. I'm sort of in po-dunk territory in terms of being able to demo.
I know i much prefer Dagger outfitting, so I'm leaning hard toward the Jitsu.
My inseam is 33 1/2" and I'm about 145#'s. I sat in a 5.5 recently and was shocked that I could fit in it even more comfortably than my Project 52. Was this a fluke? I'm almost *positive* it was the 5.5 (but I was in CO, so *maybe* I was high?)
Anyhow, I can get a great deal on a 5.5, but it will have to be shipped. Should I hold out for the 5.9? I hear mixed reviews - the max weight range for the 5.5 is 155#s, and the minimum for the 5.9 is 140. Some say - get the smallest boat you can fit into, while others advise to size up.
What say you sage buzzards?
