I know that lots of people, who absolutely LOVE their playboats (understandably), have often somewhat fantasized that "if this playboat just had some volume, it would be a sweet creek boat" Then they come back to reality and realize that a creek boat has ENTIRELY different requirements than a play boat.
The SCUD feels like someone took a bad version of the Stinger
and just pumped up the volume to make their ill advised creek boat out of a playboat/riverrunner
. SCUD doesn't play well. SCUD doesn't have any speed. It is not a dedicated creeker.
I, personally, don't like the feel of the Bliss-Stick
boats, but having padded a few of them, I do understand that they have a few good designs out there that other people might enjoy. The SCUD is just not one of them.
