I was looking into getting a shredder and have been looking at both the ATI and the hyside paddlecat...Can I get some opinions on both of them to try and narrow my search a bit? Any help will be much appreciated!!!
Test them both if you can. I'm partial to the paddlecat because I can get dealer pricing on Hyside, and because I think they run stiffer. I also like the fact that they are not black. I'm mostly a fair weather paddler and on a sunny day thet ATI can get pretty darn hot. Although now, even that has changed. Hyside is making all of it's small boats with a black(glossy) neoprene layup as an option. So now you can get whatever you want.
If you should decide on a paddlecat message me here and I can get you a good deal on whatever they have in stock.
I just wanted to give some input, I have been paddling the hyside this season and the boat just flat out rocks!! its makes tight technical class 4 seem like class 2 to me. its light weight and super bomber!!
