Looking for a used river running play boat

I'm interested in getting a free running kayak, and I thought I would ask you guys for opinions about different makes and models. Right now, I think I would like to get one of these:

-Jackson Fun
-Dagger Rx
-Wavesport Fuse

I am 5'8, 165 pounds -- I've sat in the Fun and it's a little tight but the Fuse 48 I sat in at a store was a pretty good fit.

Anyone have any opinions/experience with these boats? Other river play boats?

Fuse is a nice boat I think Dave Adams out north has one you might try. The new fun is a great starter to down river boat as well. No idea about the dagger rx.

I,ve got a nice 7-0 F/S (see post below) or your welcome to try out my Fuse 56. I am 155 lbs and was uncomfortable in the Fuse 48. Also a Lot of used EZG 50,s F/S out there you might try out. Dave.

Jackson's Fun series is pretty popular. A guy on the Missouri Whitewater Association page has a Super Fun for $600. Great price if the boat is right for you.

Hope that helps,
