Brown's vs. Poudre

Anybody know of runs on the Poudre that are comprable Brown's in a raft, at say average run-off? Maybe not so much in scenery, but more in a boat-eating or technical sense? Rocks, holes, carnage...etc. What other interesting tid-bits about the two are there, if any?

In my opinion pretty much everything on the Poudre is more technical than Browns (except Filter Plant, Bridges). The Poudre doesn't have much in the way of raft eating holes, but lots of fast paces technical moves that you must make or you have swimmers. The run from Stevens Gulch to BTO is my fav. lots of fun, hit it at 4 ft or higher and forget about Browns. Lower Rustic is sweet too, look out for Death by Dismemberment!

From slepping elepahant to bridges (except for the hatchery and the narrows) is all good if the water is over 4' in a raft and I wouldn't go to rustic if it was below 4'. Also I disagree with bridges being cake at high water dangerous bridge is the biggest hazard to a raft on the river.
