Which Paddle Cat?

I have been in the market for a Paddle Cat style boat for years. Now I am trying to determine between the RMR Phat Cat or the Hyside Paddle Cat.

Currently I paddle an Aire Puma and have for the last 10 years. I love the boat but am looking for a few things in my next boat.

1- Lighter weight
2- Smaller Rolled foot print (able to store in a large crate or storage bin)

I thought I had made my mind up on the Hyside but the RMR is very tempting!
RMR has
1- More D rings
2- heavier weight fabric
3- 23" diameter tubes
4- almost half the cost!

My biggest concerns with RMR are as follows
1- I need to store the boat rolled and this is not good for PVC
2- how likely is it I get a leak in the RMR boat if I have to roll unroll in the cold?

Any input you guys can give that have experince with either boat is much appreciated. Thanks!
