Dagger's Green boat to be put into production!
After a year of working on it and meetings today to secure its future, we at Dagger have decided to produce the Green boat. I don't think this is any suprise to readers here as I have hinted at our desire to do just that for some time now.
The boat is a proven race winner but the changes we incorporated this year have made the boat suitable for a wide range of paddling uses. Obviously it is a fast race boat perfectly suited for even the most technical rivers but it is also designed to be more forgiving and quicker to turn then long boats of the past. We have essentially brought modern design and processes to create a new breeed of longer boat. It will be a kayak that will continue to be a race winner but also be usable by more novice kayakers.
We are so stoked to make this kayak, I cant even tell you. We have wanted to since we popped the first one out of the mold last year and now it will become reality. I do not have the release date 100% secured but we anticipate it to be early 2008.
And as for me personaly, I am proud to see this boat become available to everyone. In a market of very similar boats the Green boat will stand as a unique kayak. Although there are still older long boats this will bring new ideas, technology and know how to this overlooked market. I am so glad to see it happen.
