Re: Mad River Cyclone, 15' Kevlar slalom boat, $300, Maine

Yup...still for sale.

If they don't find you handsome, they should at least find you persistent.

We can deliver to the Kenduskeg or Winni slalom races. Maybe other NESS races.

Re: paddle shaft reinforcement question

For shafts, the answer for me is Dynel sleeve. http://sweetcomposites.com/Polyester.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Slip it on, tape the ends down, soak well with epoxy resin, after hard sand it to remove fuzz.

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 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 level would help stability. But, the hull was designed for people well un...

Re: Thoughts on Esquif Blast??

would an ocoee suit someone that weighs in around 230+ and be faster than an octane 91? i assume that you would loose a lot of the benefits of an ocoee with my large arse!!! am i right? d A vast array of body types paddle Ocoees. I expect someone will be on here in a minute saying 230# works well. ...

Re: Thoughts on Esquif Blast??

I have not paddled a Blast either. I have been around them at slalom races. They were all paddled OC2; I have never seen one fitted solo. I would say, for someone at 250# looking for a long fast slalom-like boat, you've made two good choices: Encore and Outrage X. I suggest, the next two boats to tr...

Re: Mohawk OCA / Warsaw Rocket

First, I do not believe Blue Hole used the Uniroyal-molded hulls for the OCA. I always was told, Blue Hole molded their own hulls. While I have never had the two, side by side, I remember the shapes being clearly different. The OCA, for instance, pulls the volume toward the ends more than the Uniroy...

Re: Dagger Caper vs. Encore

Well, first, how much do you weigh? Hard to comment about these three boats without a paddler weight. But, in general, the Caption makes a super dry OC1...but, it is really an OC2 which only does well as a solo if the paddler is real heavy and big. Most will call the Encore fast and plenty dry enoug...

Re: Source for wood t-grips

I agree that a Forstner bit is the right way to go; however, I have drilled a bunch of t-grips using cheap spade bits. Using spade bits often gives you a pin hole on the top of the grip; I actually like the hole...it lets the glue escape, and I feel I am less likely to get an air pocket than I am wi...

Oops. I took the CL ad down b/c I will be out of state for two months. In a nut-shell, I have: (1) a Dynamic C-1 which is ~ 1" deeper than the stock Dynamic, and (2) a Dynamic which is jacked up to about 12" deep at the cockpit and 28" wide. They will be back for sale in April. And, if my previous s...
