Re: Converting Sunburst II to yandem

It has definitely been done successfully. I had a Sunburst II that was paddled tandem on Ocoee by 2 ladies in a previous life. My wife and I started out in a regular Sunburst but soon found a Caption. The pocket canyon has much more volume, probably 3 or 4"wider at midpoint thus slower but very stab...

Vertige X ?

I have owned a Caption and Dagger Dimension that I paddled tandem with my wife. Our Caption days are behind us and am interested in the Vertige X. Any thoughts comparing it to these classics? 210lbs stern 165lbs bow Looking for something sportier than the mighty Dimension for smaller rivers III-IV W...

Re: 20/20 reviews for 230# please

I am 6'2 210lbs +- I feel the 20/20 would float you fine at 230lbs. It is a buoyant springy hull that likes to be driven as opposed to just floated. She has a volume that I appreciate and I do not feel oversized for it as I do in many other boats. The Option, Viper 11, & L'edge all felt too small fo...

Re: Time for a New Boat

The Esquif L'edge and the Ocoee have very similar rocker profiles. Viewed from the side on dry ground the L'edge is a mini Ocoee Millbrook 20/20 is 10'4" and spins on a dime while still being quick to accelerate The Condor is a bit is a bit like a bulldozer compared to the Ocoee. Not always a bad th...

Dagger Dimension Tandem Trim

I have an old Dimension outfitted with the triple saddle for tandem whitewater use. The original owner swapped this in for the standard seats and my wife and I have used it from time to time and liked it well enough. The saddle is trimmed 3-4" forward of center line. I weigh 210-215lbs & wife (bow) ...

Re: Esquif Zephyr XL

Please let us know how that 20/20 compares to the old old Viper. That boat has been on my radar for the past year but honestly the edge scares me. It looks so fragile hanging down all by it’s lonesome like it might as well have a bullseye on it. Half joking but it does seem that repair on the chine ...

Esquif Zephyr XL

Any feedback on the XL version of the zephyr? I’ve not paddled either the original or the new big boy version but it does look interesting. I paddle a Viper 12 but it has some “issues” & I’m looking for a good III & IV river runner. I’ve grown to like the edges on the viper as it is snappy without b...
