I love the Nomad hull, hands down. Just never have liked how I fit into it, at 6'3", after I moved the seat forward. It's hard to get in and out of, and I never did like the "flipswitch" backband idea (I personally think that is the dumbest backband design on the market, and having those attachment straps that require the two cuts in the cockpit rim is just plain idiotic, it leaks). I have the old seat, too, which is high in the back and a pain in the ass to get multi-day gear in behind of it. Like I said, love the hull and how it handles the s&*t, but the outfitting and cockpit placement (when the seat is moved forward to its more correct position) basically have always sucked on this boat, especially for bigger guys.
So many rivers, so little time..........
