I spent two weeks in a Viper 12 and 11. In the end I choose the 12. It had better glide, took less strokes to get on a wave or in a hole. I felt it was edgeyer than the 11. Definetly drier. Held its line better on a ferry. More stable , empty or full of water. I think if you're strictly a playboater the 11 may be a better choice. I choose the 12 becuase it felt more like a slalom racer to me. Faster. The size does'nt bother me, but then again I thought my 14' Whitesell was plenty small on the Upper Yough in '88. I'm 6'2" and 230lbs. so this may have something to do with my preference for the 12. Paddle both if you can, you may find your preconceptions don't hold water.
