Outrage X

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It is faster than some others and with the soft chines very forgiving for beginning and intermediate paddlers. Larger than its younger cousin the Outrage, it is capable of self supported trips and is better than others for those big water runs like the Grand Canyon. Background: In 1971, canoeist Jim Henry won the National Downriver Championships in a boat he built himself, and the Malecite and Mad River Canoes were born. A couple of decades later, Henry and fellow paddler Tom Foster designed the… Full review

Adventure 14

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A GREAT canoe for not only mornings fishing, but for the more die-hard paddling adventurer looking to get away from the busy life of society and venturing into the land of mountain air, soaring eagles, and trout the size of small children!

If it were longer it would probably track straighter. Our Old Town was a 16 footer and this one tracks almost as well. It is a tad heavy but… Full review

Adventure 14

rated 4 of 5 stars Stable, comfortable, durable, but heavy canoe. I bought this canoe on craigslist. It's my first canoe and I bought it so the dog, girlfriend, and I could do some paddling trips. It has served that purpose well, and is great for fly fishing on ponds, as it is stable enough for me to stand up and cast around (little shakey at first). It also handles my dog's excitement over nearby ducks without a flinch. The back rests are comfortable and fold flat and secure for transport.   The boat carries weight… Full review
