I just did a trip this spring, and ended up trying to decide between the SuperFun and the new Dagger Axxiom. Took the Axxiom 8.5 and LOVED it. It was like a cross between an RPM, X-Boat, and Sleek all mixed together, only much more comfortable. It was fast, stable, yet loose on a wave, and it was decent for chasing the occasional swimming rafter. The SuperFun would have sucked paddling across the pools, although it might have been slightly better at steep features.
I tried the 9.0 after I got back, and it is way too much boat. Make sure you get the right size for your weight but be at the very top of the weight range for it. I weigh 190 and the 8.5 turned out to be the better boat. Go try one, you'll be surprised at how much fun a long boat can be again.
