Hey so I'm fairly new to the kayaking world and have done a lot of research on kayaks and what I'm looking for and have narrowed it down to the Dagger Mamba 7.6 which will allow me to do everything I want to do. First off I am 5'9 and 155Ib's so is that a good size for me? Or should I go bigger to the 8.1?
Also it is extremely hard to find the Mamba's used. I just found a Dagger Mamba 7.6 that a guy was selling barely ever used and in amazing condition. It comes with a AT carbon fiber paddle with bent shaft, a Langer Dry Top, and a skirt all for $1000. Is that too much for all that stuff or is that actually a good deal? What are your thoughts??
