Any body had a chance to paddle this thing yet. I am eying it as a down river boat . Preliminary reports are that it's a bit twitchy for creek'n
But has great hull speed. As in mountaineering, speed is safety.
I loved it. I'm just a tad big for it at 200. Paddled it down eldo and bailey and it did great. Think it would be a great river runner for you. Not to mention Steve and Landis are top notch and the plastic is the best.
I also really liked the cross, but am a bit too big for it for harder stuff. A good creeker for folks less than 170#, agood river runner up to 185 or so. Good manurvrability, great speed, tuff boat, better value than the rest.
