Although I don't have any experience with the neoprene boats, I bought a hypalon mini-max last fall. I have put some miles on it this summer, from technical runs like slaughterhouse and bailey to longer trips like westwater, with plenty of cruiser runs in between. So far I have had absolutely no issues with the boat at all, no repairs needed. Holding up great, and love the boat.
I would imagine the neoprene boats hold up great as well, I just have no experience with them. My questions would be if it is as easy to repair as hypalon, and maybe if it rolls as well as the hypalon boats. A lot of people think I have a duckie rolled up in the back of my car.
