I don't know enough about play boats to know how well the "tech" of the project X design holds up to brand new play boats right now. Ive heard a lot of people say that its still a pretty modern design ... as a newbie to playboating I'm not sure if I would be able to tell the difference between the project X and say a Jitsu or Rockstar (the other boats I was considering)
That boat is plenty "tech" enough for you a newb and for most seasoned boaters.
It's fun to paddle and does all the tricks.
$850 is too much to pay for any boat that is used and has been paddled before even if just in a pool. Offer 700 and stay firm. That boat was discontinued in 2013, not worth $850 unless it's still in the wrapper.
