Default dagger gt 8.1 vs rpm max

I've been paddling for several years but only started whitewater paddling
this spring. I'm 6'6", 215 lbs and have size 12 feet. I'm looking to buy a
boat. I'm not sure I'll ever be really serious about playboating. I don't
see
myself going over "large ( 6') drops). I just want to be able to travel the
rivers and creeks safely and have a decent boat to practice and build
confidence. I've been looking at either a Dagger RPM max or a Dagger GT 8.1.
I fit into these pretty comfortably. I've read the online reviews and most
people
seem to be happy with either. The local schools use RPM's/RPM max's, but
I don't see many on the rivers otherwise.

Once I make a major purchase like this, I tend to stick with it, so I don't
want
to make a mistake.

If anybody has experience with either/both of these boats and has a
recommendation, I'd appreciate any advice you might have.

I've also considered a Perception Supersonic (8.5, I think), but nobody in
my
area stocks them for me to try out. The online reviews were mediocre. Any
suggestions here?
