I am looking to buy a kayak for my son. There is a Jackson Hero for sale here. It's a good deal, but from reviews it appears that there was a redesign in 2008 that improved the boat. Is there an easy way to tell?

Inflatables have a serial number, the last two digits designate the year. Are kayaks similar?

Thanks in advance for helping me get another youngster into the sport.

That redesign changed the hull pretty dramatically so it's easy to see if you know what both versions looked like.

Just look up some pictures, or take it down to Alder Creek and ask them.

Just go to alder creek and see a new model. Its very easy to tell. Older ones are pointy and new ones are more rounded at the bow and stern. Don't get an old one!
