Re: Under rated boats...

... hard-chined, asymetrical-rockered, C-1 and OC1 hull shapes...there would be lots of Max II DNA in them. The designers of the Frachella Viper, Twister, and Defiant will flat-out tell you they snagged cross sections from either the Cuda or the Bat. As far as the other hard-chined boats, the ...

Re: Twister Vs. Edge Thoughts from the Experts

Hey Rob, Did you try contacting Jenny Goldberg from the League of the Northwest? She may remember who bought my Defiant at the Cedar race more than a few years ago. Another person that was there and talked to the guy was Marc Leonard. I can attempt to contact him to see if he has a clue who it was. ...

Re: Twister Vs. Edge Thoughts from the Experts

I have built and raced both designs, The designers of these boats weigh between 150 and 165 pounds. A paddler you weight , would sink these narrow designs to the point they won't handle properly. This is very true of the edge . Slalom has not traditionally been a big man sport. The biggest by far I'...

Re: Twister Vs. Edge Thoughts from...

Never paddled a 15' Edge. A very uncommon boat at races I've been at. The boat I would suggest is the Howler. Kaz makes them, and Mad River made them for a few years in Royalex. A really fine boat for heavier paddlers. A close second would be the Prowler. A Prowler is +/- a Howler paddled backwards ...

Re: Twister Vs. Edge Thoughts from the Experts

Roy, Thanks for the input. I've been considering racing in the 15 foot class as opposed to the 13 foot class, so do you have an opinion on the Edge 15? I've always been handicapped by my size when it comes to boating, they just don't make a lot of boats for guys who look more like linebackers than c...

Re: Twister Vs. Edge Thoughts from the riff-raff

I raced a Twister for a while at something in the 210 to 230# range. I was running it with a 7.75" seat height. I concluded it was too skinny for me at my weight (spin and stability issues). Getting the seat down well below my ...

Twister Vs. Edge Thoughts from the Experts

... X, and since I already own one (even if it is on perma-loan) I'm just not sure I want to buy another. Plus its 8 hours away form me. So, Edge Vs. Twister I realize that both these designs are quite old, and any self-respecting OC-1er should have managed to paddle both during their time as a boater. ...

Re: Dagger Cascade = ??

... the wetted surface was tweaked, other times, not so much. As Adam mentions, the Hahn was the base for the HD1, and, I believe, the Flashback. Twister was from a BatMax Fat Boy (aka Defiant) from a CudaMax Sweet had a bolt-on mold extention which made a Hahn hull mold into a OC-1 I have made ...
