Comparing Kayaks

Looking at either getting a Pyramus 9R, Pyranha Machno, Waka Tuna, or Waka Gangsta.

Looking for any input on how they are different. And if anyone already has a preference, why.

My only experience is in the 9R. Great boat. Between the list above I see 2 types. Creeker = Machno, Gangsta, and Tuna. And River Runner = 9R. If you are boating low volume rocky creeks then you want the most comfy Creeker. If you are running water that is deep enough that you occasionally hit rocks then the planning hull of the river runner is your ticket.

What rivers are you hoping to do the most??

From what I read, the Tuna, while a creek boat, has a planing hull. That should make it a good all around boat. But you really should demo them. It's really hard to say what you'll like until you are sitting in one.

I really like the 9R. If I was to have the choice between those boats. It be 9R hands down. I've only boated big water (lower Salmon) in the 9R and if it handles like I think it will in the small rivers. It will replace the Remix in my quiver. I now more when the ice melts.
