I'm your size and had an X for a season. I thought it was a great river runner, surfer and spinner. If that's what you're looking for than that is a decent price. It's not a great playboat by today's standards though. The X is considered one of the classic designs and is still in production. Used ones still sells for alot. I sold mine for $500. The reason I sold it is I found it unbearably painful to sit in for long periods. I'm 6 foot 160 also. But then I was really stiff then. If you're more flexible you may not have that problem. My EZ is way more comfortable even though it is smaller.
