the best playboat made is the one that works for you.

I like the star series, but the boats I hate sell pretty well too, so they must work for someone.

Ask anybody that paddled one.

With todays playboats you have to make a choice of style of play you want.
If you want a bouncey loop they are great but if you like older school slicey play todays boats leave alot to be desired.

Now if you can't do a trick it is not because you don't have the "Best Playboat" its you.
Put EJ in an Transformer and he will still be a better playboater than I will ever be.



Find a boat that fits and is comforatable and that will be the BEST Playboat for you!!!!
Remember opions are worth what you pay for them.

Seriously I would have to agree with 70's soul band and the capt. Find a boat that is comfortable and feels good, but anyone that has paddled the Dagger Kingpin knows they are the shiat. Me and my roomie are both on our second ones. Whatever floats your boat will be the best playboat.

It's hard to get a fair response to your question. Many people have their personal favorites and many here have financial ties to a company.

And there isn't a single best boat. The designs are refined so much, that the differences are more a matter of personal taste. Some boats are better at a certain type of play, others will be better at a different type of play.

Now, if you are asking what is the easiest boat to learn to cartwheel in, that may be a better questions, but I still doubt you'll get fair answers here. I recommend going to one of the bigger kayak stores and ask the expert.

Also, a boat won't compensate for your lack of skill/strength.....
