And if you actually do get an AIRE, they'll stand behind their product, and fix it even if you were the one who messed it up.
Actually, as I think I've said before, I'm pretty darned happy with the attention Sotar has been giving this issue.
I was just surprised at the appearence of the tubes and wondering if others thought they should LOOK BETTER
, and if that seam really COULD BE
As for AIRE; I paddled a submerged log once, and I also paddled a Hyside IK once. They were too similar...didn't prefer one over the other. I've rowed a freinds Ocelot several times. Nothing like a log, or Paddlak. And Nothing like a Sotar Legend either!!!
Unlike the log and the paddlak, I CAN tell the differrence. Even after only rowing the Legend through a couple of class III+ rapids, I couldn't go back to an Ocelot.
So let's be clear about this. Sotar has been very supportive
and offered all of the options I mentioned in the poll, as well as others I didn't mention. I am absolutely convinced of thier comittment to my total satisfaction.
I was just asking opinions about which option I should take....NOT ways to force them to do what they willingly offered.
