El Grande Jefe

I've heard rumors LL is going to release a large jefe (the best cb ever). Has anyone heard when this might happen or what the timeline is for this?

No plans for now.

Nothing new this season. I talked with Woody and Shane around OR and there wasn't enough demand to warrent another size. Just as many folks would prefer a smaller size- to a larger one. But, it doesn't really mean they would sell any additional kayaks. Just, split the number or creekers they're selling now. For them I'm not sure the additonal cost would offset the sales.

If you're looking for a bigger kayak. You might want to check out the Mega Rocker from Jackson. I've seen some smaller paddlers using the boat and they looked great. Plus, the redesigned Nomad seat should help push the Dagger boat back into the market- it's a well tested boat. And, the the Habitat at 80 gals (same size as the Rocker) Mega Rocker tops the charts at 93 gals. I talked with Ben Skooksberry and here's loving the Mega for the super gnar here's been firing up.

But, back to the point. No new Jefe Grande for this season. Not listed in the dealer books and nothing on the DL for now.

I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

just talked to LL about this, no word until at least summer O.R. However, word in Asheville is that Mr. Kern has been stealthily running the Green in something that is not a production jefe...
