I have one you could try if you want. I traded mine in for it when I went to Uganda. I really like the boat because it is pretty versatile' send me a pm and you can come and check it out. I will be in Boulder for the next couple of weeks.

PINK 2Fun

My daughter is selling her Pink 2Fun, formerly owned by Emily Jackson herself. The 2Fun is an excellent boat. Hands down it is one of the best boats ever made. Her's is in fantastic shape. It is located in Salida. Feel free to call 800-571-2026 and ask for Ken if you are interested.
Cheers!

Black Jackson Fun

I know of a black classic Jackson Fun for sale - good price/excellent deal. You can PM me if interested and I'll give you their contact information. It was my boat and I loved it. It didn't fit me just right - so I went a different direction. The boat has only been in the river a few times - maybe 4 or 5. He bought it for his girlfriend, but she's too small and needs a 2fun.

BTW - Excellent boat for learning to roll and get on edge for crisp turns.

I have a Classic 2Fun, and like it a lot. It's a versatile boat, good for play and river running. I tried the new 2Fun and didn't like it as much because of the fit (the newer 2Fun had more volume and was wider). The newer boats have a flat hull, which makes for easier spins; the classics have some ridges on the hull which help with tracking (I guess) but make it not as loose. Hope this helps.

I've got a Fun and I love it. It's a great boat to learn in and progress as well. You can playboat just as easily as you can run bigger water runs. I'd definitely recommend it.

I say that about Burton too... you're point?

Give logical explanations and examples or you're just trolling.
