Diesel vs Mamba vs Remix?

I need a river runner for a GC trip in July. Thinking of a Diesel or Mamba or Remix and looking for some 411 from anyone who has paddled any two of these. (Sorry if this starts WWWW3 (White Water World War III)) but I didn't get much action on the Gear Talk forum.

Diesel, Mamba & Remix

I paddled a Diesel for 5 years. Now have a Remix and many friends of mine paddle a Mamba. You can't go wrong in any of these boats. They all perform great for river running and creeking. The Remix is the most differnt of the three, more of a displacement hull that likes to be driven and it's a bit faster than the other two as well and the outfitting can't be beat. The other two boats have much to recommend them as well. They both turn easier from a neutral paddling position , the Mamba damn near rolls itself, Wavesport outfitting is very comfy. You know I would find the one you can get the best deal on or that you're most comfy in and don't look back.
