Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

I am 6-2 240lbs. I have paddled an Ion in a parking & play type of environment. I looked absolutely ridiculous in the thing but it was a very fun boat!

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

Update- I picked up an Ion. Only have used it at the WW Center. I am clocking in at 210lbs. As you would expect, any nominal amount of water in the boat makes a negative difference. I have solved the problem by using a 2-pump bilge which ...

Opinions Ion vs Blackfly original

... something for park and play and am leaning towards one of these two. I have a chance to pick up the original for a pretty good deal where as the Ion would be a new boat. Anyone give me some feedback on opinions of the 2? Currently paddle a Spanish fly and love it, but something shorter just sounds ...

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

Whatever weight you are to use the Ion as a river runner means you will get some exercise. It is a short boat so not a lot of momentum. I paddled it down Clear Creek, Lilly to Nemo and had a blast. If you don't mind paddling a lot more than longer boats you can take it anywhere.

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

I asked this question on GDI and was told that at my 215-220 it was fine for park and play, but not necessarily the best option for river running. I took this to mean it was time to diet lol.

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

The boat is a blast. I had an original when my weight was higher than your range and loved it. I lost weight, bought a new one and it is also a fun play boat. The aluminum mold version has more momentum than the original but lost some primary stability. If you are looking for a fun, fun boat buy one...

Blackfly Ion Max Weight

Anyone 215-220 lbs paddling the Ion that can give a review?
I am considering one but have heard it may ride too low at that weight to be enjoyable.

Re: Condor vs Rebel

... more of a specialist boat in my opinion vs a do it all. If someone says they want a do-it-all boat.. I would recommend the Covert. Agent - Option/Ion Covert 9.3 - Octane 85/Condor Covert 10.5 - Octane/Condor Rebel - ? Firefly 14 - ? ^^ is more or less the comparisons I am comfortable making - ...

Re: why would you not use a pump?

I use a pump except the new Ion does not have one. Simple to set up with SLA, Atwood 1200, switch. I really like Matthew Toddhunter's lithium battery, military switch. If you want to buy a system from him contact him through Ridgespirit ...
