Custom Inflatables is have a killer sale!

Custom Inflatables, in northern West Virginia, is celebrating their 25th anniversary with an awesome 25% off all new rafts and inflatable kayaks. These guys are the originator of fast, nimble, and playful ik's, the superduck and thrillseeker. The design has been ripped off all over the world but these are the real deal and at a once in a lifetime price. They are also making crazy light urethane rafts and ik's.

As always, boats are custom built to your specs, including awesome "bass boat" glitter logos and lettering.

Check out Attila's new website- Custom Inflatables, Inc. | Ready to give you the ride of your life!

Wish this deal was there a bit more than a year ago when I had Atilla make me
a ThrillSeeker.

My first inflatable (many decades long hard shell kayaker but due to a horrific accident now paddle my ThrillSeeker) and so far my boat has exceeded my expectations loaded for multi day floats and unloaded for fun runs.

Can anyone provide input as to quality, durability, customer service, etc? Been toying with getting a tandem to take along on family raft trips, so I would lean toward the SuperDoubleDuck.

Have not had my ThrillSeeker long enough or used it enough to give a quality answer on durability.

My boat looks good tho so it passes that construction quality test.

Performance has been much better than I expected.

Took a much longer time than I expected to get my boat (I paid in full up front and that might have put me way below commercial customers) other than that Attila was very fast in giving me answers to my questions.

This is one of the most expensive inflatables I found for sale, right up there with Aire's. I am a really big fan of Aire Rafts and Catarafts, so buying the Thrillseeker without testing was truly an act of faith on my part. The fact that Jim Snyder uses a Thrillseeker and is a big fan of Attila's was extremely influential to me and probably the reason I did not go with an Aire Lynx 1 which is what all my IK using buds recommended. I have owned and boated multiple of Jim Snyders boat designs and paddles including a Big Foot squirt by New Wave and have talked to Jim Snyder quite a bit and he always gave me good honest answers. Many of you younger kayakers may not know of Jim Snyder, but his boating skill and hi quality designs and paddles have stood the test of time. So for me if Jim Snyder runs the West VA steepies in a ThrillSeeker, that was all I needed to know to buy one.

We bought a Thrillseeker this past spring and it has been out all summer. It took a couple months for them to build it but we knew that would be the case from our initial conversation with Attila. He spent over two hours on the phone with my wife to make sure she was getting exactly what she wanted. He also replied to emails with updates of its status while it was being built. He later asked what color she would like the urethane coating on the bottom to be to complement the blue boat and explained that if she chose blue, which she did, it would not match exactly. It arrived a couple weeks earlier than he initially estimated and in time for a trip we had planned for her birthday. The blue urethane does not match the blue boat but complements it because he took the liberty to put glitter in it! It is now named "Sparkles" and my wife loves it!

It seems to be very well made and has not had any issues in its first season. I suspect it will last a long time. I'm very impressed by the company and products and want to order something for myself.

We just ran the Gorge last weekend and our friend loves his. We named it Disco Duck and he loves it, the boat that is...not the name we gave it
