the old hero reminded me a lot of a wavesport godzilla. the boat was long, somewhat narrow, pointy, shaped like a cigar, with a displacement hull.
the new hero was a complete redesign and rocks. the boat has a planning hull, moderate amount of volume, and is a blast to paddle. its more of a river runner/creeker than full on creeker but people are creeking pretty hard stuff in it. think diesel, burn, etc..
