WS Pungo 125 or Old Town Loon 126? : Kayaking

WS Pungo 125 or Old Town Loon 126? : Kayaking


Beginner to kayaking and just wanted to get an idea of what might be better for me, I’m 6’0/275pds and will be using mostly in ponds/lakes and possibly in a bay with calm waters (its open water technically, but very sheltered and would not go out if windy/rougher as I’m learning). No current plans for trips over 3/4 hours if that should factor into making a decision.

No preference of Sit-in or SOT, if Sit-in I would like it to have a big cockpit.
