Shredders are cool for R2. Limited to only that. Where as, a mini-me can be a paddle boat or oar "rig".
The more stuff you load in a Mini-Me, the harder it is to right a flip and self rescue. Might be a factor on El Grande.
BTW I built a frame for a Shredder that belongs to an ex-guide, so she can row rapids solo when she can't get a partner for R-2 paddling. Built a tramp seat and got a back-pillow thing from Paco. She says it works fine.
