I was amped to try this boat, it has an elegant old school look about it, long, sleek and fast. Just looking at it brought back memories of long front surfs and booming enders. After I got over the initial shock of the "baby poo" color, I jumped right into it and checked out the fit. I was a bit suprised by how comfy it was. I had just sold a LL Jefe Grande because I could not get comfortable in it at all and now I was very comfortable in a boat that was only 3 inches longer and 21 gallon difference. 69 gallons versus the Grandes 90 gallons. I have no explanation for it. Anyone have any info for me? Would have loved to have kept the Grande if it fit this well.
LL's Badd Ass Outfitting lives up to it's name, super comfortable and a snap to adjust. I didn't have to do anything, it fit perfect right out of the wrapping. I also dug the water bottle under the seat.
The outfitting is awesome
Nice round hull
Heading to the local play run
Well, I had a total blast paddling this boat. Fast, Fast and Faster were the key words. I was making moves with ease that I usually found hard to pull off in my current playboat. I discovered the joy of attainment (paddling up river, using eddys and river features) all over again. It took awhile to get a good surf session dialed in. I was so used to plaining hull kayaks that the round hull schooled me for a bit. Once I figured out the sweet spot, I could front surf forever.
Punches holes well.
Growing to really like the baby Poo color (it does grow on you)
The real reason I was amped to try this boat. Enders baby!!
I was getting launched like it was 1993
I would buy this boat just for the Ender factor...
Pros: Super comfortable, Fast, Light, Makes running rivers fun again, Enders-what can I say?
Cons: Might feel a bit tippy for a beginner kayaker, thats about it.
Conclusion: Comes in 3 sizes to cover all shapes and sizes. Great river running boat, Good collection to the quiver or for someone that just wants to enjoy running river. I also think this boat would be great on big water class 4-5 and on bigger volume creeks. I loved the boat...
