I am looking to get a Wavesport Fuse, but am inbetween sizes.
I am about 195 with no gear. Gear would put me up around 200 or 205, and am only 5'8 inches tall. WW skills are intermediate and am moving from a Wavesport Diesel.
The 56 gallon version is good for up to 210 pounds. The 64 gallon version is for a paddler that is 190 to 270.
So for me I will either be at the very top of the weight range, or the very bottom of the weight range.
I sat in the 64 yesterday and it also felt really big. The store is getting in a 56 next week for me to compare it to.
My concern with being at the top of the weight range is that the boat may be too catchey and slicey and the bow may pearl too much for me.
On the other hand bigger boat is just that: a big boat, or at least it felt that way sitting in it in the store. would be interesting to see what it feels like on the water.
What do you recommend?
