get a tributary tomcat. i got one last year and absolutely love it. super stable boat, but thigh straps are pretty much mandatory. only around 600 new. i know someone with a zoik. they suck. cheap pieces of crap i hear
would really like to find a used trib. I stumbled across the zoik during my search. Not too stoked about the 1 year warrenty on the new one, makes me question the longevity. But, I have a set of 5 year trib cat tubes and they are still perfect.
I looked into the same thing a year ago...couldn't get any info from someone that has used Zoik boats. I've used the Tomcat Solo and it's nice for the price. You can find cheap, barely used Zoiks/Tomcat tandem on the Gravity Play website. They are used in adventure races.
We just wanted to jump in and provide some info. The RF's, our whitewater IK's, have a 5 year warranty and are built with a triple seam construction and are blast to paddle. If anyone has any questions regarding our service or quality feel free to drop us an email at [email protected] or call us at 303.656.ZOIK. Happy Paddling!
