The ace is a GREAT boat. Runs rivers good and is good for cartwheels/surfing. Double thumbs up from me.

BUT, I now work with EJ, and must say that the Fun series is a step up in all directions... just my 2 cents...

The Ace's tail catches a lot, one of the drawbacks of it being a good cartwheeling boat I suppose.
Somewhat shorter stubbier tails seem to be the design trend in playboat/river runners these days.

But being a better boater than I was when I paddled the Ace, and leaning forward when in rapids should fix a lot of the undesired catching problems.

My 3 successive head whack days on Shoshone as a beginner all took place in an Ace demo. I think I should have been paddling a more forgiving boat as an absolute beginner, but the Ace was all that was left at the shop.
