hyside paddlecat vs aire sabertooth

Hello out there! I've been researching and reading a lot about the shredder vs the paddlecat. I decided on the paddlecat and then I discovered the sabertooth by aire. Anyone have any experience with the sabertooth or any constructive opinions?

Hi

The saber tooth has a very cool quick drain mesh floor

The Saber tooth will hold 4 the paddlecat will take 2

The paddlecat has a sprays skirt the saber tooth does not

The paddlecat is MUCH lighter and packs much smaller than saber tooth.

IMO...the paddlecat is the better r2 boat

I owned a paddlecat for approximately 5 seasons...great boat...ran class III-V no issues...took it for airplane rides...loved light weight. ..sub 50lbs Flys like normal luggage.

But then I tried the minimax...WOW even better R2 boat.

IMO the minimax is the best r2 boat out there....the paddlecat and shredders are second best....the saber tooth gets yawn from me

Paddle on

Scott

I have a sabertooth and it has been my favorite I have ever used. I actually row it more than r2 it and use it on multi-days (see avatar pic to the left of sabertooth in pine creek).

I love my Sabertooth. I row my Sabertooth. That being said, it is 85 lbs. Padlecat is probably half the weight. But the Aire will out last the padlecat. You also get the 10 year warranty.

Don't forget to look at the Culebra made right in New Mexico by Jacks Plastic Welding. I love mine.

RMR also has a paddle cat for a pretty nice price tag. $1300 versus $2300 for the hyside. RMR specs Says it weighs about 53 pounds. Probably will not roll as tight as the hyside.

I don't own one, but every time this topic comes up I vote Culebra. And my 2nd statement is always - I will own one when the boss lady gives the "ok" for a 3rd boat.


Also, very nice Pillow smooch!

Look into a Shredder. You won't regret it.
