Just my 2 cents... I know that shops hate it when you're trying something on just to pro-purchase it.
Like I said before though, you should look into the new Stohlquist further. Go to Poudre River Kayak in the canyon.
No I plan on buying local if I go with the Xtract or the Green Jacket. I may order online if I go with the Pro Creeker since I don't think anybody nearby sells them. I was referencing online prices of local stores (Alpine Sports mainly), with exception to backcountry for the PCreeker. I try to support the local shops if I make use of them for sizing. I don't like being "that guy", but there are honestly some things I simply go online for. I like to support local, but I like to be able to pay my bills as well, haha.
