I am wanting to buy a play boat.  No river runner/play boats.  I am 6'4" and 210 lbs.  Any super stars out there.

I think this one may be too small for you, but I have a specialist, 5'9".  My boyfriend was using it, he is 6ft and 170 or so.  If you're interested, I think it is still up in the FSBO section...

Whoa 6'4" and 210... no wonder your in the Nitro

Check out the Project 64, the Agent,Kingpin, or G-Force 6.3 and the Orbit Fish

I fit in all of those and were about the same size, all are great playboats. I can look at the specialist and wish I could fit ...but it stops there... you might be smaller than me though..

I think SRK still has a Project 62 demo for $600 that would be right up your alley!

Just to throw another boat on the list it might be a little tight for you, but the astro 58 is a good boat. If you want to try it just let me know and I'm sure we can figure something out.

Well, of course I would suggest either the Riot Flair 57 or the Astro 58, both are great boats and either me or my brother can fill you in on why. If you would like.

Boats your size from other companies include the Vision 56, Big Ronin, Jackson Superstar, Agent 6.4, Project 62, and the Big rad.

James- I know you have mentioned the flair 57 before, I am going to have one out West for spring/summer, let me know if you are interested in hopping in it for a day or two when i get back.

Cuz I have size 15's I can't fit in the flair... unless I heat up the front and bubble out my foot bumps to fit. .... I had one that RT lemme borrow up at skook along with the nitro, and air... Now the astro would be interesting but I thought there was only a 54???

The agent 6.4 is sweet but still a little tight for monster feet, The project 6.4 is a tank, if you can't fit in that boat you have no hope.... I never fit the Jackson boats well... that and the strings scared me away.

Big Ronin was sweet but again bad for big feet...

Which one was called the BigFoot... I thought it was the vision... That was such a dumb boat... it had less space than a king pin 6.2 and it was like 56 or 57 gallons... labeled for the big guy...

If you are still looking, call Leavenworth Mtn Sports, 509-548-7864, they had a couple New Project 62s at cost last I knew. A friend just picked one up a month ago. Ask for Jean-Luc but anyone can help you.

Thanks for all the insight.  I found a super star in Seattle at a reasonable price.  Looking to get in it this weekend!  Almost there!

James- The Astro 58 was released last Spring. I believe brother will have one at home when he gets back from Chile.

Also, the big Magnum is being released this Spring. 80 Gallons of awesomicity.

I've been eyeing that ZG for a while, but I wasn't sure if I'd fit.  Looks like I wouldn't.

I am still in the market for a big boy playboat.  If I have to I guess I'll try a Jackson, but I'd prefer a different kind of boat.

Justin, if you want performance, check out DargoRossi's Thruster, it Rocks the big kids.  The sites price is base model from Europe.  Better prices are to come when the container gets to me from Italy.
