First Kayak question
Hey guys been doing a lot of research on a good first boat. Yes, I know a lot of people will say go used but being in the retail business I know that is not always the best choice since you don't know how the kayak was actually used or how well it was taken care of.
I am 5'8" and about 180 pounds. I will be running the New River in WV and be close to the USWC in Charlotte when I move to NC. I know most of the people on this site seem to be from near Colorado (very jealous, Fav team is the Broncos). So after talking to CKS they recommended more of a river boat for the areas I will be boating.
Top recommended from every where I have talked to is the remix, burn and stomper. Hero was recommended if I find mostly creeks around where i will be moving in NC.
What do you experienced people think of each boat and its pro's and con's? I have tons of searching but just want a little more info on these boats. Stomper is pretty new so anyone that has used this boat would love to hear from you. Read one person said it felt painfully slow.
