Jackson Hero

Anyone have an update when the hero will be out?
Anyone seen, paddled one?
How does it compare to the WS diesel?

I'm narrowing down my boat search and would like to compare & contrast these two Hybrid River / Creek boats. And demo both.

I saw one at CKS Paddel Fest. Not much to say about it except it looked very similar to the Diesel and the H3 but has softer chines.

EJ says they're making Heroes now, and that it will have a lot faster hull speed than the Diesel. 6" longer and 1 gal less volume.

Just to let you know I have a prototype Superhero right now if you are interested in checking it out. They are shipping right now. We sent our first orders out this week.

It's AMAZINGLY fast. I think it could be the fastest boat I have actually ever paddled (of any type).

Could be a great contender for the Gore Race!!!

Thanks for the update.
Do you know who will be carrying the Hero in the Denver, and when they will be in stock?

PS I still intend to get one of your Craw Packs
