Dagger Mamba 7.5?

Hello all.

i am looking at buying myself a second hand boat and a Dagger Mamba 7.5 come up which fits me well. i am just wondering the difference between the creeker version and the regular version? they bot have same spec's but the creeker is heavier.
Would the Regular Dagger Mamba 7.5 still be suitable in grade 3-4?


Attached in pictures of the boat im looking at

I had this boat, the creeker version. Creeker just means it has heavier duty outfitting, same as their full on creekboat, the nomad. The boat will do fine in class (not grade) III-IV and even some V. I used it on the Lower Narrows of the Poudre and it was really fun. Your buying a good beginner boat, no matter what outfitting choice you decide to go with.

P.S. If you didn't know, the pictures above are the lighter weight, regular version.

i know that the step out piller in the creeker version is solid plastic, as opposed to foam which is used in the standard river runner, i believe there is also a few more anchor points on the creek version. both are safety features which probably account for the weight. any way, its a great boat, it'll go as far as you are willing to go. easy to roll and super popular for a reason. if its a good price i would jump on it.
