Jackson Rocker... 1st independent review
Well... I must say that I am very jealous of this guy... I work for the company and I haven't even gotten to boat this baby yet.
I cut and pasted this from the "gear" section to make sure that everyone got a chance to check out this review. Looks like another great boat from EJ and Clay...
Hey everyone, my name is Colin and I am new to Mountain buzz. I have had a great opportunity over the past few weeks. I have been testing the JK Rocker. I am a big guy 6'5" and 225#. For years I have been forced to paddle boats that have been to small for me. In the past few years this has gotten better with play boats (score,super ez, super star/fun) but there has been no end in sight with creek boats. Now I feel that I have a few options. While I am out of the ideal weight range for the Rocker it has been supporting me better than my past two creek boats(Y,Gus). I have been testing it on Great Falls. That is on the Potomac for all of you western folks. The thing that stands out the most about the Rocker is the stability and predictability. The boat does not keep you guessing. It goes where you want it. The hip on the boat adds such great secondary stability, that I have to unintentionally flip the boat while in a rapid. All in all it is a great choice for big guys, and if you are to big for this just wait for the Super Hero. Try them out and make up your own mind. Later.
