Play Boat for a Creek Boater

So I'm transitioning more towards creeking but I want a play boat for the rivers and days where the creeker won't be ideal. I've owned a Pyranha Inzone 230 since 2004 and have used that for pretty much everything. What I'm looking for in a play boat is something small enough to pull off tricks much easier than an Inazone but can still make it down river without being too squirrelly. I've read a lot about the EZG, S6f, Flip Stick, and Fun. Any thoughts from creek boaters that have play boats? I'm 5'10" and 155lbs.

I once saw a bumper sticker on the Ark that said "Friends don't let friends play boat". Kind of funny. Should I just keep the Inazone and say to hell with a play boat?

I think if you are getting a playboat might as well get a real one and not a river runner, you can paddle a lot of good whitewater in a playboat and I kind of think they make big water runs more fun because you get pushed around so much. That being said you can still playboat in a inazone and if your main focus is creek boating just save the money for when you break your creek boat (hey we live in colorado).

Werd. You can run most or all of the stuff you don't use your creekboat for in a straight up playboat. Especially newer playboats with lots of volume for aerial tricks. Everybody has a preference, just paddle some and pick one.
