It's a dated model that wasn't very good in the first place. Unless you are getting a good deal I would keep looking.

Well, LL is a solid company and the biscuit is a well constructed boat. It was a short lived product and I don't think it cought on very well. it was not the worst boat out there by any means. If the price was right it would be a great boat to get your feet wet. but if ya gota put up more than 300, i'd look at other models.

The biscuit isn't bad. It's very similar to the Vision/Big Wheel/Pocket Rocket design they had going for several years. I'm pretty sure they came with the bad ass outfitting which is a bonus. If you are looking for a beginner intermediate playboat, or something for downriver play I would say it would be a decent deal at $350 or less. Assuming the condition is good...

I found the Buiscut to be a hard boat to roll. I consider my roll to be solid in most boats I have paddled (remix, jeffe, mamba, rockstar, super star, monstar, ezg, rev, villain, hero, super hero, shiva, orbit fish, rpm, cfs, id, zen, molan, diesel, burn, fun, big ez) I found the buiscut to be the only boat I have ever paddled I consider to be "hard" to roll.

MontuckyHuck (above) has it correct.

Great outfitting, but probably THE most difficult of playboats to roll, and not particularly fast on a wave.. I guess my best recommendation would be don't pay over 250$ for a used one in good condition.

I purchased one new, then transferred to the 2010 Jackson All Star, and found it superior in every way.

I would suggest trying other playboats if you have the chance. But if the Biscuit55 is all you really have access to, take it - I can't say I didn't have fun in mine! (see my avatar)
