Anyone out here paddled the Rad 195 (tall guys especially), I cant sit in any playboat without my legs going numb after 20 mins... even my current LL CR250. Any thoughts... Besides stick to creeking, which I usually do anyway! 8)
My opinion is different; the RAD is a very roomy playboat...even though it looks small (short), it is quite large when you sit in it. I am 6'2 and I paddle the 185 with plenty of room compared to other playboats. I paddle it for this reason...comfort. I can fit in the 175 as well but I am a little too heavy for it. At 200 pounds, the 195 could be a good choice. It does seem that bigger playboats are emerging thoughout other companies too, so you might even have a choice to make this summer.
