didn't reply earlier since it sounded like you were interested in the 400x
We have had kevlar 700's, 600's and 10X's, and right now I have a 700 Carbon/kevlar, and my wife has a carbon/ kevlar 10X.
If you are a decent paddler, and can enjoy a 21 inch wide boat, I suggest that you try both the 600, and the 10 x. The 600 might be a tad big for you.
My wife is around 116 and is 5'-2" and loves the 10x, (she was in on the design of it and had the first kevlar one that QCC built). She originally had a 600 and it was too big for her.
On the kevlar vs the carbon/kevlar I would never get a carbon/kevlar kayak again unless I was strictly using it for racing and was looking to shed an extra pound.
It is possibly because I paddle over a thousand miles a year in it, but from my experience it is too delicate, and I am constantly repairing both of our boats.
It is a big decision on your part, so good luck
