I paddled a batmax at between 205 - 210 with no major issues. For comparison, my extrabat was seams in the water at 205.

It's been a long time, but I remember the Batmax as being fairly high volume compared to all but the later (Extrabat-on) designs. At 150 lbs, I had a very hard time doing pivots.

My memory grows feeble, but I want to say 160-170. I paddled an Extrabat at 185+ a couple decades ago, worked out alright.

Frankly, I don't think you are going to find a 3.5M boat that is appropriate for your weight. My recommended boat for you is a full-cut Extrabat, Cudamax, Fanatic or similar design vintage. At your weight, any of those will still act like a low-volume stern contemporary design. I would stay ...

... III as well. I never could stay upright in that boat for very long. I was just fine in a few other Wildwater boats, but not that one... I built an extrabat that was over cut for my weight - edges were in the water sitting still... there really in no need for a 13'2" Squirt boat :-)

... Zealot that "feels" smaller even though it is a 4 meter boat - but the zealot is a fun boat. I would definitely stay away from superbat, extrabat, Fanatic - much smaller, thinner bow.

... for about 4 years - great for class 3 and 4 rivers, unpredictable in steep drops. It was a huge improvement over my prior boat , the composite Extrabat, as far as durability - I could really slam the Atom into a tight eddy, rocks be damned :lol: . The boat was lots of fun to paddle. I sold ...

... as I predominantly paddle converted kayaks I'm used to having plenty of room for a nice high saddle and to spread my knees out; Equally my 1980's Extrabat slalom boat is murderously painful, but a modern 3.5m boat like a Nerus or Supremo is actually fairly comfy. Although there are a wide range ...

... beautiful spring day. As another note, the other open boater in the video met up with me to try out my Prelude and Option. He has been paddling an Extrabat for years and this was his first experience with an OC1 less than 13 feet. Marsh Stream on Youtube

As per this clip... Basically, I'm competeing in an "old skool" event next weekend and given that my last attempt at cartwheeling my extrabat resulted in a spectacular back-ender landing on concrete. I wondered if anyone who was around "way back when" remembers any tips or ...
