Re: A bad break

Esquif has obviously been working on the l'edge. I m not sure what you mean by "fixed"- broken boats happen- you can't "fix" that. You can only make boats more durable which Esquif has done and hopefully will continue to do. Are they currently as tough as the blackflys? No. I don't think either comp...

Re: A bad break

Options and octanes aren't breaking more often than preludes. I doubt the new l'edges are breaking more frequently also.

Maybe made by murky waters now??

Love that video. Nothing like watching Scriver cartwheel a spanish fly to make you feel good about yourself.

Re: Cracked Taureau

Sorry bro. They don't really weld and nothing really sticks to them. It might make a good kids boat or something.

Re: Esquif- you might have luck contacting your rep instead of the company directly.

Re: Air bags for 'fly' boats

48" bags were great in a sfly. Even 36" bags were ok.

Re: Detonator in heavy water - what am I doing wrong?

It's probably just basic stuff. Bigger water isn't much different than smaller rivers except everything and consequently everything you have to do is bigger, faster etc. I find it helps if you re always paddling in one direction or another. It's absurd to view rolling as failure when you don't have ...

Re: Choosing a boat?

There are some l'edge paddlers who have tried the option and went back their l'edges. While we re being anecdotal, everyone I know who switched from l'edges to options were unfortunate enough to have broken boats early on…. some of which felt they were subsequently mishandled by Esquif (sigh). The l...

Re: Lost my Roll

What's a bomber pool roll? Usually when people lose their roll it is because they re not using their lower body or because they re rushing.
