Opinions Ion vs Blackfly original

I'm debating grabbing something for park and play and am leaning towards one of these two. I have a chance to pick up the original for a pretty good deal where as the Ion would be a new boat. Anyone give me some feedback on opinions of the 2? Currently paddle a Spanish fly and love it, but something...

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

I asked this question on GDI and was told that at my 215-220 it was fine for park and play, but not necessarily the best option for river running. I took this to mean it was time to diet lol.

Re: Condor vs Rebel

This will be tough because there aren't many people who have paddled both. I've only sat in a Rebel for 10 minutes so I can't speak much to it. The Rebel is faster than the Condor, the Condor is more maneuverable, much drier, and more stable/predictable. The Condor paddles kind of like an Ocoee, bu...

Condor vs Rebel

So what's the current opinion? My chances of demoing either boat are pretty much zero being in NW Arkansas. Currently paddling a fly and ledge superlite.

Re: Esquif related questions? Let me help

Not in CO, but in AR. My dealer saw pretty significantly varied times on the last 2 orders. Anywhere from a week and a half (when they were fixing a mistake on a shipment) to about 3/4 weeks on the initial from when they paid and received the boats. I would not plan on listening to the estimate they...

Re: L'edge Superlite

Good to hear some reviews. I have yet to paddle mine. I chose the superlite bc I wanted as light a boat as possible. I'm not the lightweight paddler, but just a fluffy 200lb one. I figure with the limited paddling I do, durability shouldn't be an issue.

Re: L'edge Superlite

Well I'm still anxiously awaiting the arrival of mine. Guessing the weather has slowed things down.

*Update* my boat was shipped to the UK AFTER my dealer paid for it...so now the wait begins again unless I chose to go with a standard Lite

Re: L'edge Superlite

I have spotted a couple pics on the GDI page. My dealer is supposed to have mine coming down on the next shipment of boats he is getting. Anxious is an understatement.

Would love to see you stop back in AR again, I missed this years due to daughter's high school graduation.

Re: NRS Velocity, any experience?

I keep them flat. Been toying with the idea of a stiffer sole to try and keep feet upright.

NRS Velocity, any experience?

Looking for some new water shoes and have been debating the Velocity boots. Does anyone have any experience with them in a kneeling position? None local to try out so I would be trying blind which is not ideal, but you do what you gotta do.

Re: Questions concerning new L'Edges manufactured by Liquidl

Anyone managed to get word from Esquif? Even my local dealer looking to pick up Esquif as a supplier can't seem to get them to contact them.
