Burn vs. SuperHero, is this legit??

Curious to see what people's thoughts were on this, I've always thought the real comparison would be the Ammo L vs. SuperHero, which makes sense right. But the more I look into it and talk with others it seems to me like the SuperHero is much closer in design to the Burn; volume, hull, length, am I way off here and if so why, and which way would you go. Class IV - V, I do understand the Burn would surely excel when creekin, right?

I would say that the hero is closer to the Ammo. They both have pretty sharp edges, completely flat hulls, and are fairly short. The burn has some edge (more than the Jefe or the Rocker etc.) but less than the hero and ammo.

I've paddled both the Hero and the Burn and I prefer the Burn. I found the hero so wide that it was hard to paddle and the edges might be a little grabby in pushier water. The Burn's edges are slightly raised and I find that they stay out of the way until you want to engage them. The problem with both of these boats for IV-V creeking is that they have more or less flat hulls (Hero more, burn less) and flat landings will be hard.

If your looking to do class IV-V creeking i would get the burn. The Ammo is suppose to be a cross between a play boat and creeker, so if you are not really going to play that much i would go with the burn.

I have paddled both a med burn and a hero, and i like the burn much better. I had a simmilar problem with the hero that scannon had with the boat being too wide. I also kept hitting my thums on the boat by where your thigh would be... it made rolling a little more difficult.

good to see this comparison. I've been in the Super Hero in the pool. Seems like the old Scud. Easiest boat I've ever rolled. I think the burn is the choice for the Colorado IV+ boater.

Im really startin think the same thing jeffy, still though I'm definitley going to get in as many boats as possible before I decide what's right for me. Just seems like those jackson boats have so many little benies like the bulkhead, the outfitting, and storage.
