Thanks for the replies everyone.
Thought the CR250 was too big just thought I'd mention it. It's only a hundo at Allsports Replay if anyone is interested.
CB Rob, I would totally do an afterwork sesh. I just need to go to the lake first and practice rolling a bit more. It would be fun to paddle around long lake too if I could for a bit of practice.
I put in near Garlic Mike's and got out before the whitewater park. I only swam like 3 maybe 4 times but it felt like a lot b/c it's so much effort swimming. I went with Scott who works or used to work at the Tshirt Shop and doing windows. Super nice guy. It was my first time ww kayaking and it just felt tippy. I used to own a Necky Looksha IV but am trying to crossover.
I would definately be down to go after I hit up the lake and/or the pool again. I'd be down for rafting with anyone as well but am definately more stoked for kayaking.
Only other kayaks I can demo other than the 2Fun are the I3 223 (also probably a tank) and maybe my friends Eskimo Nano but not sure on that.
I doubt anything at Allsports is demo-able.
Although out of my price range I'm also interested in a Remix 59. Might be tough to get that in the upper $400 range which would make me eat rice and beans this month. I'll have to check out the burns too. I've seend some guy use it at OBJ which is pretty sweet too.
Thanks again for the replies!
I will demo what I can asap but what do you guys think about the embudo on the cheap? Displacement hull will make it a difficult boat to start out with?
As much as I can admire the old school lines of the Frankenstein, it doesn't inspire confidence for a first time paddler. Maybe I just need to get that out more too...stability (2nd or prim was not working for me in the rapids) I was pretty spent the last time I paddled it.
