The Full Review

This boat is a lot of fun! It is a nice mix of speed and stability. I took this boat on some pushy rivers like the Wind and on local steep creeks like Hagen and Canyon Creek and had a blast on all of them. I also took it to the roll class for students to try out and it was really easy for beginners to get it rolling.

The Good:

-Fits larger boaters
-Fast
-Stable
-Catches Eddies like a boss
-Easy to outfit
-Durable
-Great for multi-day trips

The Bad:

Leaks-If you duct tape around the bolts and the webbing on the cockpit you can decrease the leaking significantly.

The Bottom Line:

I really enjoyed this boat and highly recommend people to try it. So go to your local awesome paddle shop like Next Adventure and give one a try.
