mamaba VS. mamba creek

Just in the market for a new big boat. I got super interested in the Mamba for the versatility and its reputation as a river runner that creeks better than most river runners. Looking at the Dagger web sight they had the mamba and the mamba "creek". The web sight was not super specific on the difference and I was wondering if anyone has paddled both or knows a bit on the subject. I think the "creek" has the outfitting of the Nomad but I was wondering if hull shape and edge were any different. Any help wouldbe rad.
P.S. I know one of the first replies will be "just buy a Jefe broski"
Cheers Charlie

To the best of my knowledge the hull is the same, different outfitting and recovery points.

To answer my own question.... the hull shape is the same. I found a new "creek" at the local yak shack and looked at a buddy's regular mamba. I just bought the creek. First time I have purchased a NEW boat and not a used $400 rig! It's shape does seem to be a bit more "creeky" than the other river boats I looked at like the Deisel or a Remix or a Hero. edges seem a bit higher and harder to catch, stern seems like it will shed fairly well and not stern squert as quickly as the diesel. Can't wait to paddle it.

Yea, the Mamba creeker has the "creek seat" which has a rotomolded "step out" center wall. You can use it for a quick exit. It's basically a Mamba with Nomad outfitting.
