Prijon plastic best for rocks?

Some say prijon plastic is the most abrasion resistant and least apt to oil can. What is your experience?

it's not immune to oilcanning, but it is bomber stuff.

been wondering the same about HTP...paddled the Hurcules once and was very impressed by this kayak's performance. Any other experience with Prijon's durability compared to polyethylene boats?

I have had a Rocket since wow the late 90's and have abused the hell out of it. She is now my self support/fishing rig. I store it under my deck and no issues. Its HEAVY though.

Prijons last a lot longer than regular plastic if you're talking just general abrasion. How much longer, I don't know, probably twice as long or more. If you don't swim out of them they'll last even longer.
