Vol. distribution bet Stomper 90 and large Viilain?

As a follow up question to the preceding post, how does the vol. distr. differ bet these 2 boats? I ask this because I sat in the L Villain in the pool and the fit, edging, paddling, and rolling were great. I sat in the St 90 on the floor and immediately noticed it was too high around the torso area and the bow seemed enor mous. My wt 200, inseam 32 , ht 5.11', .

Thanks for your views.

Best bet is to sit them side by side in a shop and take a look for yourself. Boats always seem bigger on the floor than on the water in my opinion.

The Stomper has a lower seat position than other boats, making it more stable. You can raise yourself up with a foam shim under the seat pad if you want. I have the 90 and love it, yes the bow is huge, but its not unwieldy.

Seat riser

I also put a half in. Seat pad in my 90, makes a big difference.
