I have actually sat in the Equinox cockpit and fit fairly well (I was a bit surprised but it was pretty good). I have VERY short legs with an inseam of only 28-29 inches, so maybe that contributes to my not noticing a problem? I will be paddling both in the next few weeks (I want to test them in decent weather so I need my schedule and Oregon Weather to cooperate!) so hopefully I will get a better feel. I appreciate all the answers (and would be happy to get more opinions/suggestions!). I am not really worried about the 4 lb. weight difference out of the water, with my legs a bit less useful than they would normally be I have gotten used to using my upper body to assist so I am in pretty good shape from the waist up despite my weight.I lifted a Journey at a local shop and did not find it difficult to maneuver or carry. Quality of construction is also an issue for me and it sounds like the Eddyline is the best built of the group that has been mentioned. I will see if I can find a Delta near me, but the smaller cockpit may be a problem.
Thanks for the input so far it has been very helpful!
