Re: Soul Waterman's Fanatix

Making a plastic C1 is a rare gamble and if they do not get enough orders, production may be cut short. Keep that in mind. The Fanatix seems to be a winner, but the last 2 plastic C1's (the Robson Finkenmeister and Drakkar Wheelboy) were not financially successful. The C1 community is small and diff...

Just ordered the Fanatix. It will be awhile before it arrives. Will give a review after some experience with it.

Re: Soul Waterman's Fanatix

Yep. Saw that website already. Is it too early for anyone to have had any river experience with the Fanatix?
Thanks.

Soul Waterman's Fanatix

There is a new plastic C1 on the market. It is the Fanatix by Soul Waterman, designed by several top C1ers, Jon Lugbill and Corran Addison included. This is big news for the C1 community. It IS pricey at $1800 dollars! It looks very playful and is claimed to be a good general river runner. I am inte...

Re: Boat of the Week - Dagger Atom

Hello JohnD, The Atom is a good boat for Class 3&4 sections. It paddles a little like a low volume slalom boat. It will teach you something about your boating, because it demands more of you. After selling my first Atom :oops: , I picked another up recently. They may be hard to get, so don't wait to...

Re: OC2 instruction

Go with a C2. An OC2 ships a lot of water and becomes difficult to handle in more serious water. A C2 would probably be more maneuverable, is a hole-punching machine and is easier to roll. One place to check out is Nantahala Outdoor Center in western North Carolina for lessons. I got C2 lessons ther...

Re: From C-1 to H-1

Excellent illustration that your lower body movement is just as important as upper. :o
P.S. We are dry out here for the fourth year and won't have much of a boating season. Thank God for releases.

Re: The end of ESQUIF..... :(

If you want Blackfly to stay in business....BUY THEIR BOATS :D ! C1 boaters went through this trauma a few years back. We didn't buy the new boats (WW plastic) and one manufacturer after another (Dagger, Robson and Drakkar) stopped making C1's. We are now left with kayak conversions, which fortunate...
