Are any of you paddlers in Colorado paddling this boat? It is awesome! I've moved to the dark side and cannot believe why everyone doesn't have one? It's great in the CO mank, does great in the NF at high flows, and paddles awesome loaded for overnighters. Check this boat out, it does a lot of things great. I love this boat.

Ah, another person who is drinking the Jackson Kool-aid. Have you paddled the Dagger Nomad? Wavesport Habitat? Liquidlogic Jefe?

I would recommend you try those boats before singing the Hero's praise. I have only heard of you and one other person who thinks the Jackson creekers and river runners are decent. Jackson makes playboats and river playboats. Nothing else is quality. You won't see anybody winning downriver or creek races in a Jackson boat.

Though I swear by the Burn for river running/creeking, I do have several paddling friends who are way better than me who love the SH. It may not win DR/creeking races but I don't think that's a real criteria for most creek boaters. I just want to paddle runs safely and having fun. To win the comps, you want a Greenboat, special edition Remix 100 or similar...

I'll bet Gar-E has paddled many of the boats you have mentioned as he has been running the shit longer than many of us have been paddling....

You're flaming Gay E for what reason? Oh yeah, that's what we do on the buzz. I think Gary E's resume and hairboating reputation preceed him. I'll bet he's paddled more boats you never heard of and stomped that sh*t. I would give his opinion a little more than a cursory acknowledgement The pics of Milner were impressive. Those are some big frickin holes.

I agree GE, I switched over to the SH this year and am really digging it. I've paddled the Gus, Jefe, Mega Rocker, and now the Super Hero and while its took a little while to get used to, I now use it exclusively.

O.K. Let me rephrase: I apologize for flaming Gary. I don't know him. I am just tired of all the Jackson stuff that gets posted on here every day. I guess to each his/her own.

Also loving my Super hero. I love the way a flat hull with chines ferries through anything and snaps into an eddy. Boofs great too, which is saying something if I can make it do it. The outfitting is super comfy and easy to adjust, but I guess most boats are like that now.

Ya, Gar. How many Nomads have you owned? I know you loved that boat and it treated you well. What are you racing in, big boy? Please forgive Mr. Rhynocerous he's new and does really have a clue, just likes to shove his fist down peoples throuts regarding JK boats. He's deffending his original purchase to the death.

Glad you like the boat. I thought hanging Ben and Jesse would get you to try one. Couple more busy weeks ahead and then I hope to start getting out. Give me a shout when you come through.

(Sorry for the flame Rhyno- It's just a super funny read for every one here who does know Gary and you calling him out. A few more years and you'll get the joke too.)

SYOTR- Peace.

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