Hey I'm looking for a new boat somewhere in the river running/creeking genre and hearing a lot of good about the Dagger Mamba or mamba creeker. I haven't really seen the difference though. What is the difference between the Mamba and the Mamba creeker??? If anyone has experience paddling both please comment!

Thanks!

dagger has two outfitting systems, river running and creeking. the creeking seat is a bit beefier and more solid and few has a few other differences than the river running seat which is more bare bones. Most people get the creeking outfitting, its bomber. The creeking is more comfortable but more heavy.

Got it. So it sounds like the actual boat hull is the same, same plastic, etc. They paddle the same but its a comfort/weight tradeoff. Correct?

The difference is just the outfitting. The creek outfitting is beefier and heavier.

Creeker pros:

1) Safer if you pin. Actually, the rocks may just disintegrate on impact when the Creeker comes in for a landing.

2) The Mamba Creeker will make you into more of a stud because you'll be carrying around 5 extra pounds of rock solid plastic. Add that to the water that will be in your boat, and you will be one buff dude that the ladies cannot resist.

Non-Creeker pros:

1) Less likely to cause injuries when landing on Front Range no-boof beaters. Oh wait, you are from Boulder...

Definitely go with the creek outfitting if you're going to creek with the Mamba. The plastic step-out pillar will be worth the extra weight on your shoulders if you're ever pinned and need to get the hell out of that thing. It's completely front range mank approved. And as jmack stated, chicks love the Mamba. If you need any more information this video explains the Mamba and it's benefits really well.
