Im 5.10 160lbs. The rockers outfitting is great. It holds a line really well in both big water and steep creeks. Due to its lack of rocker it doesnt boof that well, but when you get it up to speed it can boof fine; however, not as good as other boats: Nomad, CFS, Huck...(anything with rocker basically). Great for overnighters, can pack plenty of gear in the back. My one complaint, and it's a big one, is that after less than a year I cracked mine in multiple places. I didnt even take it down anything crazy, I litterally can't remember when I cracked the boat the first time..or the second time...or the third time. I was in the mist of a 10 day trip mainly running class 4 and class4/5 rivers/creeks. I know Jacksons crosslink plastic is suppose to be bomb-proof. Maybe I just got a faulty design; however, I would be nervous to get another Jackson boat for this reason. Aside from this major detail the boat has a great design.
