Liquid Logic Freeride 57 or 67?

Post by donbarr » Fri Oct 26, 2012 1:23 pm

Does anyone have an idea which would be the better fit for a tall but not very heavy paddler? I'm 6'4" and a bit under 80kg.

The obvious thing to do would be to demo a boat but I'm in Devon and the nearest I can find is at the Tees barrage.

Any thoughts?

At 6'2" the 57 was a good fit...though being 115Kg I was pushing the bounds of it's weight limit in an amusingly playful sort of way. I'd have thought you should be OK with the 57, but would recommend a test.

at 6'4" I found even the 67 left me feeling I was seated possibly too far back to get the balance I would like, I could just about cope with it - depends on whether your height is more in the leg or the body I guess.
Old School?? I miss my AQII..

I'm selling my ll CR 250 which I guess is the forerunner of the 67. I'm also 6'4" and am selling because it was just slightly too small for me. I was fine for a short paddle but I wanted to use it as an all day river runner and it just was a tad too tight.

However I have short body and long legs, (36" inseam) and have really big wide size 13 feet. I reckon that an inch shorter legs or slightly smaller feet and I'd have been fine. Shame really as its a great boat.

If you fancy saving yourself the premium of a new boat and I can tempt you with the CR as an alternative let me know!
