Pyranha Nano

What are your thoughts on the Pyranha Nano?
I'm looking at this boat for paddling small creeks. My large volume creek boat (LL Jefe Grande) feels too big in the tight rocky sections and my playboat (JK Superstar) is too squirrely when the water gets more technical. The Nano looks like something inbetween that has the best of both worlds. Its like a high volume playboat with some good creeking features. Does anybody have any experience paddling this boat?

A good friend of mine paddles one and I gave it a quick try. It's a really fun & nimble small boat. It's certainly a special kind of kayak but loads of fun. It's faster than you'd expect it to be but obviously not comparable to a modern (race) creeker. I only tried it on our slalom course (WW III+)so I don't have any "real" but for lower volume creeks with lots of features this boat seems pretty perfect.
But on the other hand I could also envision a Braaap for this kind of stuff

I loved the nano owned one for 2 seasons its very nimble moves/turns on a dime if ur running tight creeks, tracking is decent for how short it is not a bad boat imo
