I'm thinking of going back to my old school roots this year. Its just my style on the river to not sit still. I'm not the park and play boater. I'm the type of boater that loves to fly down the river, zip across an eddy, attain back up, ferry across, catch a wave, peel off, fly down river, repeat.... You get the picture.

The old school boaters I learned from paddled this way and has always been my style since then. I have seen the Dagger Axiom online, and only once on the river and it looks like the boat I am drawn to paddle. It reminds me of the "playboats" of the late '90s. Has anyone paddled this boat and can give me some feedback?

Thanks

I'd like to hear some feedback on this boat too. I did look one over at the Nantahala Outdoor Center this December and was impressed with the build quality and outfitting.

Sweet boat.... kinda like an RPM with an edge. They're fast and responsive. Really good secondary stability. For your paddling style, this is probably one of the best new boats out there.

I was going to take the big one to the ARD down river race last year, but was too hungover (funny... that happens EVERY year).

It really has the look of a slalom boat. I'm comparing it to my DragoRossi sl350 design wise (certainly not weight wise). And everything that's being said about it is what is often said about slalom boating. "Will up your boating game no matter what kind you do." "carves on edge like a knife but not very forgiving." "Steer it with balance and your waste."
