The New Jackson Hero, Well ???

I know it is early and no one has really paddled it yet, but I was curious of everyone's opinion regarding the HERO from the pictures and videos on Jackson's website. It suppossed to be a river runner, but it looks like it will do fine on the steep stuff too. What is your opinions? If you are a jackson Hater dont bother answering Lets see what you all think>

I'll be interested to see and paddle the Super in person. Could have the makings of a great self-support boat, but I kinda think the Everest will have it beat (there's so much friggin room in the Everest, but the flip up bulk head of the Jackson could make it a contender).

The regular Hero almost looks like a big Scud. I'm sure these things will be really popular with the beginner crowd, but it could be an awesome big water / Upper A type boat as well.

A couple of people that have seen the one we have in the store here say it looks like it might make a good Front Range Creeker.

Time will tell.

I'm not a class V boater but a lot of people in my circle are very interested in taking a hard look at this boat including me. My thing is at 185 do I want to look more at the Hero or the Super Hero with the thought of I want to be able to step up into some V-, V area with Gore/Bailey etc...
