I think I will have to disagree with you on this. If you live in Colorado and want to freestyle in our shallow hole playspots, I think this is the hottest boat. I in fact have gone back to this boat. I had a kingpin, then went to the crazy 88, then went to an Agent. I have come full circle. I am going back to the best boat I have paddled in colorado.
The last two boats just did not do the job. Yeah they are bit faster and can surf a big wave better. But, we don't really need that around here. Take the Teva Games for instance. Dagger Won just about every spot in the freestyle events when they paddled Kingpins. Then they went to the more bulkier boats and they lost. It is all in the boat for that type of hole.
Just my 2 cents.
