Interesting Question from a Long Time Paddling Friend

... great time. This Fall, after a tick bite, I missed some good water due to my health. I am finally to a point where I can paddle again and have the freedom to pretty much go every weekend. We did the lower section of Clear Creek (Jett to Nemo) a couple weeks back. It was running over 3 and pushy. ...

Re: Question for Blackfly Option Owners

... lacks the lighter touch of an Option and shifting weight forward and back does little compared to my Option. I enjoy the Octane a lot and love to freedom to run harder/wetter lines without eating something that came out of the north end of a south facing camel. For big boy paddlers it's the only ...

Re: Searching for the perfect tandem/solo, river/lake hybrid

... would push it way out of the "jack of all trades" category where solo river running is on the list. Boats like the Starburst, Canyon, Appalachian, Freedom seem to fit the the bill, but personally I'd look at smaller versions, like the Pocket Canyon or an Old Town Cascade, or maybe a Prospector-type ...

Re: so who has bought an extra favorite royalex canoe?

... Mad River Explorer is one of the most successful V-bottomed MR canoes made. MR has been wavering (in catalog descriptions) about whether the Guide/Freedom Solo is V-bottomed or shallow arch. I think it's a very shallow V-bottom, and a very successful design.

Re: Help choosing a versatile canoe

... 1/2. I could probably get mine down a class 3 as a stunt, but it wouldn't be any fun. Other boats in this class still in production: Mad River Freedom Solo (used to be Guide), Mohawk Odyssey, and a bunch of models from smaller, high end boutique makers. I'm sure there are other boats out there, ...

Re: Mohawk Probe 12 & Mad River Freedom Solo for sale

Where in Central Va? I'm in Lynchburg. Would love to grab that Mohawk, but no cash available at the moment, any interest in trade? I've a Nova Craft Supernova with recent bow and stern kevlar plates and bags to go along.

When I first started paddling one I found the easy roll combined with the maneuverability gave me the freedom and confidence to push more technical or difficult lines which I might have not attempted before for fear of missing the move, or of not getting ...

Re: Who makes an adjustable height pedestal?

... I've been using thigh straps to a reinforced traditional web seat. It works quite well for me performance wise and can offer plenty of movement, freedom and options. When kneeling and tight, I've got great control and can roll with ease. I can instinctively free myself from the straps, but there ...

Re: Wenonah RECON ?

... sporty enough to have some fun on easier water and maybe do some teaching from. I usually paddle an Option, Prelude, or Viper and a bagged out Freedom Solo for tripping and big (non technical) water? Looking for something between the Viper11 and Freedom Solo. Currently leaning towards the Recon ...
