I'll play, and I can kinda do it in a christmas carol.

twelve river kayaks, sung to 12 days of christmas

I've had twelve river kayaks,.... in the past 3 years.

First three were, rockers

next 2 were villains

2 super funs!!!!

then came the karmas,

i've had 4

and im waiting on the next one.....

I love jackson kayaks, I use 'em a lot. remember to hit the high "a" when you sing "waiting" to finish it.

wish list for me is the karma long boat, but let's not kid anyone here. I just need the volume.

I have had....
Pyranha h3- river runner
Liquid logic jefe Chico - creek boat
Wave sport fuse - down rive play ( I guess. that boat sucks)
Wave sport Transformer- first play boat
Perception dancer - awesome boat got stolen
I now have
Dagger jitsu 5.1 - great play boat!
Jackson rock star small - it's for sale cheap if anyone want one. I was not a fan.
Pyranha shiva small- love that boat. Best creek boat by far.
Perception dancer- had to get another one. Those boats are too great

Wave Sport EZG 60 play/downriver boat - It's an older boat now.... I bought it new in 2006, and I like how forgiving and stable it is... great edge control.. great outfitting... probably not the greatest boat for throwing advanced moves like a loop.

Wavesport Habitat creekboat- I used to run the Pyranha creekboats, but I found that the strong edge is a detriment when hitting rocks. The Habitat has a semi-displacement (some edge in the stern, none in the front of the hull) with a fair bit of rocker. As such, it's forgiving and boofs much better than the Pyranha series boats. The drawbacks are that you need a stronger bow draw stroke to catch eddies on the fly because you don't have a strong edge to carve across the water. It also doesn't carve that well on must make ferries. It's kind of a compromise boat, but that's exactly what I wanted. Good luck finding the best boat for you!

Nomad 8.5: not exciting, but still seems to work as well as any despite it being an older design. My favorite creekboat design that I've owned to date. If they warranty mine I'll stick with it. If not, think I'm going to try to procure a Prijon Pure XL as I'm getting tired of broken boats and my welding skills have plateaued.

Jackson Allstar ~ 2010: comfy, light, plenty good playboat for my ability, perfect volume for me - kind of liked the pre-2010 version better though. It was more balanced and better downriver. Will stick with Allstars until proven otherwise.

That's how I felt about the Project X 56, then I paddled the 2014 Rock Star and it proved itself otherwise.

Currently I have a couple Villains, one broken, a medium Karma, Project X 56, and a medium 2014 Rock Star ordered.
