AIRE shredder?

Anybody seen pics/specs of the Sabertooth?
(I get a hyside Paddlecat yesterday and find out about an upcoming Aire this morning -- funny!)
What, no dedicated shredder forum!

Maybe I was too specific asking about pics or specs.
How about any intel at all?

Some limited info on the Aire Facebook page. Cost: $2700 retail. Sounds like a press release this Friday with full details. Looks awesome to me! If I hadn't just bought a Super Puma, I would seriously consider buying a Sabertooth.

Thanks for the pics -- looks like "wave destroyer-ish" rocker for big drops.

Wow boat looks cool that's for sure. I am sure it will shred

Weight could be an issue for some. I recently flew with my Hyside Paddlecat for whitewater fun. Weight limit was 50 lbs for checked luggage or excssive weight fees applied.

Paddlecat had no problems. But that cool new Sabertooth is not as travel frendly.

I really like the smal light ( sub 50lbs ) rolled package of the Hyside for traveling.

But the orginal Airtight Shredder is lighter and packs even smaller than my Paddlecat.

Sure would love to paddle one. The floor of the Sabertooth seems inovative when compared to the other shredder's.

I wish my Paddlecat drained faster at times

I also note the Sabertooth does not appear to have a spray skirt like the other shredder's. Might make an already wet ride even wetter Got make sure that cool new fast drain floor gets a chance to shine
