Dagger Mamba 7.6

rated 5 of 5 stars Super maneuverable and quick around rapids. Took it on the Gauley River and it handled like a pro. I loveeeeee this kayak. <3 Full review

Jackson Kayaks 2 Fun

rated 5 of 5 stars This boat is a happy marriage of a playboat and a river runner. I have the Jackson 2Fun made of the heavier plastic, which from what I am told is the way to go. The lighter plastic is harder to repair. I recently got this boat on sale brand-new and I have been happy with it. It is a well-liked boat and although I have only gone on one river with it, I was pleased. It was actually easier to get on ways to surf than my other shorter park and play boat. However it is not as easy to throw down, I am… Full review

LiquidLogic Remix 79

rated 4 of 5 stars The Remix 79 is a great all around boat for the beginner to the more advanced paddler. If there is anything negative to say it would have to be, in low water the 79 does seem to scrape a little often(but what boat doesn't ) when you consider the Remix is designed for a larger paddler the scrapping is normal. I'm 5'9" 225 lbs and I love this boat. Easy to control, roll, eddy just a great all around boat. River running, creeking, guiding, instructing no problem, this is a boat I will keep on the water.

Jackson Kayaks Rogue 10

rated 4 of 5 stars From white water to flat water this boat is very adaptable for any use. Good stability and great tracking with the drop down skeg makes it perfect for the beginner to the more advanced user. This boat was just what I was looking for in a crossover between white water to flat water capabilities. It's stable and maneuvers easily through tight spots and with the drop down skeg that is utilized by a handle on the right side of cockpit you can track great through long sections of flatwater. The padded… Full review

Dagger Mamba 7.6

rated 5 of 5 stars If you are short heighted, not very muscular, and haven't found the right kayak for you. Your search is over and you can pick this blindfolded. Special recommendation for girls. I am very excited with my Dagger Mamba 7.6. This new boat looks like the perfect choice for someone who needs one kayak that can do it all. I am a beginner I am 5'2" and 50 kgs and since last 2 years I could not find the perfect fit for me and it wasn't very encouraging. I am even more excited and encouraged to kayak… Full review

LiquidLogic Hoss

rated 5 of 5 stars The Liquid Logic Hoss was actually my first whitewater boat, and I still have it.  The Hoss is a great river runner that can also catch a wave along the way to surf, while having plenty of volume and stability to run big water. From the manufacturer, Liquid Logic: Hoss is a river runner for the paddler sized between 130 and 240 lbs. It is easy to paddle downstream and easy to roll. We took the tried and true qualities of our creek boats and joined them with a playful hull design that allows any… Full review

LiquidLogic Jefe Grande

rated 5 of 5 stars The Big Boss of Creeking. In my opinion, the Jefe Grande is the most bomb proof creek boat on the market. Super forgiving without sacrificing performance. Some point to its lack of chines or edges as a negative, and while it is true that this boat doesn't carve, it more than makes up for it in primary and secondary stability, boof-a-bility, and resurfacing. It is what it is: the big boss of creeking. I've paddled the Jefe Grande in everything from class III to class V and you can rely on this boat… Full review

Dagger Nomad

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I know I will get blasted for this by all of the Nomad fans, but I think it is awesome, but a bit sluggish. It needs the volume I know for staying high and dry, but I just don't think it is as responsive as I would like it to be for quick response and for really pulling out of sticky plunge holes. It could also have better accessibility to all of that room in the stern- they may have corrected this in the newer models (mine is about 3 or so years old now) but I know they haven't changed the hull… Full review
