Prijon Rocket Kayak - $625

How much did this boat cost brand new when it first came out all those many years ago?

But to be fair, it is a package deal:


Quote:
1 - Blue Prijon Rocket White Water & Lake Still Water Full length Kayak
1 - Double ended Concave Trick Control Paddle
1- New - Yellow - Kayaking Protective Helmet
1 - Front or Back End Kayak Floating Recovery Air Block with air attachments
1 - Full Cover Splash Skirt Guard
1 - Fully Adjustable Leg's Support Bracing Bracket

Damn, I wish my paddle came with "Double ended concave trick control"!!! Will this one help me learn to loop?

...... something just seems wrong about this post as well ......

That paddle will help with the first half of your loop, getting upside down. I used one of these paddles when I mine a few years back. It needs a "paddle viagra" to be worth a damn.

Prijon seller must be a politician. That's some fancy wordin'. I think every item is embellished.

Hello First allow me to thank you for your interest,
So are you in the area of Boulder County ? where are you located?
Second your in luck , it is still available , I had alot of interest and 3 people actually came to see it but had checks , and 2 wanted me to take off listing without payment , an arrange for payment later , and I am sorry to say that ,
This purchase is strickly ( CASH ONLY TRANSACTION )
Now as far as what the itmes are for ,
i WILL EXPLAIN AND SHOW YOU ,HOW IT ALL WORKS N GIVE YOU A CPL OF TIPS ON THE SPORT,WHEN YOU COME TO ACTUALLY BUY THE PACKAGED iTEMS..

But for now here is a run down of the Items functions ..which are sold separately so this is a deal...
Well
The kayak of course speaks for itself,
The Dble Ended Concurve Trick Paddle is for Controlling your Riding the running waters.
The Full Splash Guard Skirt is for keeping over flowed water out of the Cock Pit where you sit.if you do rollover tricks and flipping..
The Helmet of course Protects your head from injury during Flipping over tricks or unintended flips.Like capsizing..
The Adjustable legs Brace is for different Height Riders, for placing your feet for control to your Paddle.This is one of the things I really enjoyed about this settup , is that you are not on your knees riding , your sitting down , which is very easy to enjoy riding longer periods of time...without discomfort or pain to your Knees...Like in most compact Kayaks..
The AirBlock goes Inside your End of your kayak , Thats for the Kayak to stay above water and keep it from staying underwater , when you do tricks or cap out it shoots the Kayak above water...for easy Recovery..

I do hope I have help you, and if you are seriousely interested, we should consider , exchanging contact information for the due process...OK..

Sincerely - ZOU..XAKON...

This one isn't so much a terrible deal, but it is either a typo or some serious false advertising... I have been unable to find a 16' raft that has 46" between the tubes... Even an Aire 176R only has 45.25" between the tubes.

Worst deal I have seen in a while is at the local Taco Bell:

12 tacos for $11.95! Wow, I can buy 12 tacos individually for $11.88 at 99 cents a piece. Pay 7 cents more for a special carton or something?

Has anyone else noticed this? Can't believe someone would fall for it, but it is a big advertisement on their menu. Drives me crazy!
