Yes sparkles are nice

Yes, the sparkles are a nice touch. The name is looking like Pixie. If I was 9, I would go with disco duck.
That sale would have been nice 3 months ago…
When I was looking for a ducky, I tried to demo/rent as many as possible. This is much easier said than done, since not many shops have demo duckies or rentals that represent what you would buy. Surprising when spending $1,500 on a product. I tried Paddliac, Aire Force, tributary, DRE, etc..
I ended up settling on a Thrillseeker based on what I was looking for (stability but still highly maneuverable), buzz comments and speaking with Attila.
Here is my opinion so far after 2 days in the boat;
Construction – I waited longer than quoted for my boat to arrive which was torture, but understandable with it being their high season. The bummer was that after my first day, a friend noticed parts of the seam delaminating. Which sucks since it left their shop like that and they had plenty of time building the boat. I have the hassle of sending a brand new boat back for repair, but the good news is that it can wait until winter. Attila does seem to stand behind the boats he builds.
Performance – I am very pleased. It is fast down river, ferries easily, surfs well and punches holes. The continuous rocker makes the boat spin very easily and turn effortlessly. The one caveat is that I’ve only been on lower flows so far. I am still experimenting with the floor and how much to inflate.
Weight – It is noticeable lighter than all of the other duckies I tried.
The thrillseeker duckies are higher performance and you pay for it. If you are looking for a ducky for your family, the thirillseeker will work just fine. If it is not something that you need a higher performance boat, I bet you can find a cheap used ducky on the buzz or through a local outfitter having a swap/sale.
PM me if you have other questions.
