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 empties it quickly. I would say Wendy's comments are spot on. ...

Re: C1 & C2 Boating

Nice tale David, I hope that it continues to evolve. I was 48 when I switched from OC to C1 and my first boat was a Gyromax. It took me two years to get comfortable and have a roll, and then I was not satisfied with the G-max any more. It was fine as a down river runner but cross current ...

FS: Kid drysuit

... entry. Kokatat's sizing guide claims 5'2" to 5'6" for height range, but I think the upper end on that is optimistic. I'd say more like 5'3" as the max height. This suit is 5 years old but is in new condition - I bought both a M and XL, and my son went from youth M at the end of one spring to adult ...

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: Comparing new OC-1 solos for 200+lbs

... stern. Attainements are easy in the Agent 88 and Covert 9.3, 10.5 that you usually don't do in these short boats. Sabrina posted that 90 KG is the max for the Excite. While I may hop in one I know I am too heavy for it, but if I was younger I might buy one anyway. IF you want a more nimble boat ...
