I'll throw another vote in for the Burn. It's sick.

I'd also recommend the Burn. Try a medium before you commit to a large. I fluctuate between 188 and 192 lbs and find it to have ample volume for my needs. Before I bought it, I wanted to demo a large, but couldn't find any shops that had a demo. But since I bought the medium, I haven't regretted it.

True my riots where older, my CFS oil canned on its first trip on OBJ, running where your suppose to be. They all still use the crappy PE plastic, the Pyranhas use harder plastic, which is why they have cracked since the Blade. I always liked Riots designs, Necky uses a good plastic, sadly you can't find a Blunt any more.

Thanks for all the imput. I tried the jefe and the habitat, but i learned to paddle in a riot disco and have never quite figured out the displacement hull. Plus i live in idaho where big water is much more common than low water rock slides. What about loading the boats with gear? How does the magnum do loaded for overnighters?

Both are good boats

I just purchased a magnum and really like it. Here is a link to the Riot blogspot, with some information on using it for an overnighter. I had demoed both boats as they were my top choices also. Here is more info on both of them. Chose the magnum for how it fit my style of paddling and liked that is was slightly shorter, had some edges and still have the same volume or more as the burn, jefe, etc. I liked how the back can be removed to get into the back of the boat easily and the volume in the bow and stern. It has alot of speed, holds a great line and turns easily. I think either way you can't go wrong.

For overnights, the back band folds down entirely to make it super easy to fit stuff in the back. I have not had any problems with back-endering a loaded boat or anything.

Have you tried them both? I demoed a magnum for a bit and felt like it was too turney for my preferences; I had the same issues with the Huka. I paddle a Nomad now and like it, for what it's worth. Don't know much about the burn.
