I just started kayaking this summer so for my first kayak which would be better to get. I had my first lesson in a Jackson 2Fun which I enjoyed. The Jackson is $450 and the Dagger is $300. I'm a 5'4" female and weigh roughly 125lbs.
If it's the 2012 or newer version of the 2fun then that boat will fit you for a long time (assuming you are done growing). It is a great boat for play and river running. Plus they are leak proof. Can't say the same for the dagger. Someone else might have some thoughts on performance differences, I don't have experience with that model of Dagger.
