Jackson Rocker?

Been looking at creek boats for awhile and am thinking of going with the Jackson Rocker. Anybody have an opinion/suggestion?

I have a mega rocker and feel it is a great boat

It is a displacement hull and some might find that a problem if they are used to flat bottoms and sharp edges.

For me the boat will turn just fine if you lean the boat, it is very stable on edge.

The smooth curved bottom and big bow means boofs are automatic, the boat rides up and over both shallow rocky areas and funny water.

The boat is big and heavy out of the water, but in the water it paddles like a much smaller boat.

EJ does not have the rope system down 100 percent yet but it is very much improved. Outfitting is very comfortable and easy to adjust.

Good boat and plenty of room for over night gear.

Demo a Hero/Super Hero. I thought I wanted a Rocker till I got in the Heros.
If you are coming from a play boat you will feel more at home in the Heros than a Rocker.

Het Nate,
Just a heads up that we have a couple used Rockers for sale at the swap. You can also take out our demo if you want to take it for a spin.

Have a great weekend.

I have a Rocker and I love that boat. It is so forgiving, it punches threw sticky holes and even guys with a bad roll can roll it. I would highly recommend it for a boat that will grow with your ability. It was recommended to me and I really like it.

Love it

Sweet boat, much easier to pack for a self support than a Jefe, if you might be doing that sort of thing.
