Yay for Mr. Clean.
I'm 5 ft 8. I weigh around 9 1/2 stone. (135ish LBS or 65ish KG), I'm 15 years of age with size 9/10 feet, I've been paddling 5 years and I'm a 3 Star kayaker with my CST.
About the test environment
I own a blue Mr Clean and I paddle it often on the sea, on flat water and at a local weir.
The Mr Clean is a brilliant kayak, although Perception class it as a Intermediate-Advanced kayak I'd say it was probably Beginner-Intermediate, it has slicey edges some comfortable outfitting, 'lots of leg room' and just such a nice feel about it.
It's downsides are if you're near the lower end of the weight range it takes a while to master flat water playboating moves although when you do something you feel great for it afterwards. Other than this I can't say much bad about it!
Overall, really, it's a great kayak even if it is old and ugly.
You really should try one if you're a beginner.
