Watch out for ski jump also. Run right when big, no matter how it looks, but there is a log just before it so watch out.
I found the best thing in pistol at high water was to do as little as possible. Highside, keep track of my oars, and just push through off the pillows. Kind of like Leidecker's book says, make the straight lines on a dollar sign. Pulling back will just shoot you around to the back wall, and you'll be way over rowing.
Weber is a BLAST, we ran it at 6.5, don't let yourself get surfed out of the waves, they keep going and going and going.
Rubber was kind of washed out, it looked like it might be big but maybe everything just broke around me and I didn't get any surfing/playing in.
Velvet, just never give up, keep pulling, and you'll make it. The pour over above the pillow seems to give more time than you think, even if you don't hit the eddy. I think the left sneak opens at 7'? Not sure.
If you're a solid Class IV boater (bigger water, not technical) you should be fine. Some say the MF is like the Lochsa if you subtract 2 feet, plus you've got a load. If that helps...
