Have you seen them in action yet? I'm by no means a Jackson fanboy, but that is a sick boat. The other pros in Lyons couldn't touch the Jackson guys in the new boat. Heck, the Jackson guys in the old All Star couldn't touch the new boat. Brian Kirk was throwing down hard in his p52, but he couldn't touch the amplitude that they were getting out of that new boat.

Overpriced...yes.
Should it have a new name... yes, it looks nothing like the original Stars.
And who cares what year they want to call it, Jackson's naming convention is already ridiculous so it is no surprise.

Gotta agree with SORAD, Caper Mike is a douche bag. Ever since you started posting about your triple class five plus (V+++) first D I have thought you were a tool. Do everyone a favor and lay off the buzz and just go paddle. You rarely add any value to a conversation, if ever, and your posts are painful to read. I have no idea how old you are but you act like a 14 year old and write like a second grader. I am surprised you even have a full time job. Clearly your job does not involve piecing together complete sentences.

To rebut your latest comment, I am not in a Jackson, I have a WS ZG for play and a Habitat for creeks. I had a chance to paddle with EJ and Clay Wright when they were in town for team trials. Neither one of them ever told me to switch boats and neither gave me any attitude. Quite the opposite, both offered helpful tips on how to blunt better and how to throw McNasty's.

Who cares what they call their boat or how they label it? Are you really that caught up in their branding? Itís a sick boat, just like every other boat out there. So, stop being a bitch and go paddle.

Casper Mike, let me rephrase this in a way you can understand:

csprmke is a dooshbag and cant rite wurth a shit he is to hardcoor for the rest of us i am gratful he takes wurk tim to post his upinion on the buzz

Later, Tool.

now this is some funny shit. you can have you opinion i have mine. never bad mouthed the team or the boat design for that fact just the menatity. if you know what that is. guess thats how they sell there shit. if you want to be the best you have to boat the best. which is bs and not very good attitude to bring to the industry. boating to boat or boating to be the best? you decide.

mut, you done yourself good, guess im not the only "tool"

as ej said from his site."Beginner, intermediate, or want to win the world champs, this is the only choice worth considering at this point in time. Sweet!" yeah sweet

CM, you have me stummped. I don't know what 'menatity' means. I even resorted to a dictionary (you know, a big book used to find out the meaning of words). I could not find the word in Websters. Is it latin?

On an ironic side note, the closet word to where your 'menatity' word would fall in Websters is the word Menarche which means the begining of the menstrual function. That made me laugh. Here let me use it as an adjective (word to describe something) in a sentence:

Caspermike must be menarcheal, which would explain why his panties are in a bunch over the new Jackson kayak and EJ's marketing campaign.

Holy shit, I am funny.

Oh man, where to start. Jackson playboats are very well-made boats, but what should you expect when they put so much time into R&D into a company that really only makes playboats. I think most people would agree with me that the Heroes and Rockers are not great boats. Nearly every creek or downriver competition has Habitats, Nomads, or Diesels in it. If you want to win a world playboating championship, (which is about 50 people in the U.S.) then you should possibly consider a Star. The amount of air you can get in a Star is pretty impressive- but they cost at least $200 more than nearly any other playboat.

That being said, I am extremely tired of the Jackson attitude. I am not making this a blanket statement because I have extreme respect for the Jackson family and what they have done for the sport of playboating. This attitude does not apply to all Jackson fans either. Some of the groupies that follow around the Jackson team are honestly a little scary. I love how much they are into the sport, but honestly- maybe they should spend more time in the water than following the team. They show up everywhere with their logoed-out vans, RV’s and trucks, and it honestly makes me a little sick.

Brian Kirk and team Wavesport/ Dagger are bad asses. Hands down. They were throwing down at LOG in the playboat competition and kicking some serious ass in the creek competition as well. If anybody noticed, there were almost no Jackson boats in the creek competition, but almost exclusively Jackson boats in the playboat competition. That being said, Brian was doing some amazing stuff in his Project. And in case anybody forgot, Brian just won in Glenwood with his Project 52cx. So the star is NOT the only choice for pro paddlers.

If the star is the "only choice worth considering at this point in time," then you are probably disregarding what this sport is about. If there is going to be a monopoly in the playboating side of the sport, I'm going to have an aneurysm. Jackson has been around for only a couple of years and I have a feeling that their time in the spotlight will eventually fade. Wavesport, Liquidlogic, and Dagger have been around forever and make consistently amazing boats. Contrary to what some people think and feel, there ARE other parts of the sport that I think are more fulfilling than playboating. If you are sitting in one spot throwing tricks, you are missing out on what whitewater can offer.

Just my two cents though.
