This boat has always appealed to me. My canoes always seem gargantuan compared to my friend's kayaks. It'd be cool to have a short boat but still single blade and kneel.

Tell us more about your demo paddle. Can you compare it to the original?

Luckily, I know and paddle with Jeremy, so we took a couple of laps down a local 2/3 run. I have only paddled the original one once, and it wasn't outfitted properly for me......bulkhead was too carved out for me, so it's hard to judge.

I'm 190 and was surprised at how well it floated me. Also it felt very stable. Surfs, spins and rock splats are a blast in it, and it feels so light when you have to dump! Plus, the new textured surface makes it easy to hold on to.

I already ordered one!
