Jackson Hero/SuperHero C1

Post by leclercraven » Tue Oct 02, 2012 1:32 pm

Does anybody have a Hero or SuperHero with the Jackson C1 outfitting? How does this boat handle as a C1?

Thanks.

The Hero is so slow I can't imagine it would make an enjoyable C1.

I'd go for a Stomper. More speed, more versatile...

I did see it in action (K1) as a friend of mine rented one for a couple of days and from what I've seen, even though it's a little slower than the Zen and Mamba in flat water, he made everybody look like amateurs running grade 4 rapids...and he has about ZERO experience in whitewater boating!! Now I know that the boat is extremely stable, fast and manoeuvrable in big rapids as a K1 but I would like to know how it handles itself as a C1??
