What up G! Just got back from a fantastic trip to the south island of NZ. My god, that place is pure bizness!
The 08 Rocker line is going to have 2 upgrades... The first being an injection molded foot system as opposed to the aluminum we have now. Should save about 2lbs. Also we have added a tray if you will for our composite beam that runs the length of the boat. That will assist in distributing the load when boofing and although it was just fine in 07, this will make the hulls even stiffer.
The Grande is comfy to sit in but I haven't paddled it. The Rocker and Jefe are two completely different boats by quite a margin. Rocker is fully displaced, Jefe not as much.
I have a 07 Rocker and Mega to try if you are interested, just let me know.... martyatjacksonkayakdotcom
