I broke 2 riots, i've seen multiple broken pyranhas, the list goes on. As boats get newer companies try to make them lighter. If you pick up a Jefe and then you pick up a Y you'll feel the difference. You sacrifice new lines, more rocker, and less weight for durability. Seems fair to me, I'd rather hike in with 40 lbs on my back than 50, have the extra rocker to help with pearling, and the new outfitting rather than duct tape. But in the same respect, some people learned to boat in the older boats so it's no big deal to just keep using them. Boat what you like, that's the point right? I like my Jefe, one friend likes his solo, the other his huck, a topo, a freefall, a magnum, a mystic, whatever, my crew all use different boats and it's cool because we all like different things about each boat. The trend in boats is that in the battle of plastic vs rock plastic is at an extreme disadvantage, but all boats can break and that's a fact. So pick your boat, and use it to have fun. If you got good use out of it, it's probably a good boat, if not, maybe it's time to move on to the next.
