I don't paddle Tempest 170 but from what I know about the 170 I think you might find it too large. Moving the seat aft a couple inches might be a consideration to help you select the smaller sized Tempest if you're on the fence about which to choose.

I'm 6'-3", 210lbs, size 12-13 feet and modified a roto-molded Zephyr 160 to fit me by moving the seat 2".

Good luck.
