Re: Millbrook Rival

... When I first paddled it, before serious outfitting, I tried paddling it backwards, in the "fishform" direction, similar to the fishform Millbrook Ignitor though less markedly so. The "front" end felt loose and full, and I could pull it one way or another by altering the direction of my forward ...

Re: Spark, Ignitor, or Shacho (i.e. which Kaz boat)?

IMHO, Composite boats are much easier to repair than tupperware or royalex boats. A little bit of sandpaper some masking tape, fiberglass or kevlar cloth, and some epoxy and you have everything you need. No plastic welders needed... A composite boat would probably not be the choice for boofing a ro...

Re: Spark, Ignitor, or Shacho (i.e. which Kaz boat)?

Because of the flashy tendency of our rivers (the river might be up when you leave home, and buoyed by the online gauge, you set off, only to find that's its dropped to bonier-than-hoped-for levels when you put-in), your responses steer me to plastic, and thus the Spark. As an aside, how difficult a...

Re: Spark, Ignitor, or Shacho (i.e. which Kaz boat)?

Good summary Dave. The question is, Peapod, do you want a 13' boat or an 11' boat? Plastic or Composite? Actually, Kevlar is an Aramid fiber, which is plastic, so technically speaking, a glass/kevlar boat is partially plastic, but you really couldn't call a composite boat plastic, only chemically. A...

Re: Spark, Ignitor, or Shacho (i.e. which Kaz boat)?

The Spark is (more or less) Esquif's royalite version of the Ignitor. Being a "glass" boat the Ignitor is lighter and therefor potentially faster than the Spark. Otherwise, they probably behave about the same. The Spark is: - Very fast in a straight line. ...

Spark, Ignitor, or Shacho (i.e. which Kaz boat)?

I'm trying to decide between a Spark, Ignitor, and Shacho, for OC slalom primarily, and some river running. I've got the Penrith Whitewater Stadium down the road (a tight, pushy artificial course, used in the 2000 Sydney Olympics-- http://youtu.be/pfJi8PLrgdo ...

Re: OC-1 length and slalom course performance

Yeah, that's what my impression is. I bet Kaz will contribute soon, but my impression is that the design of the Inferno is based on the Ignitor, which might be a better boat for you. FWIW, I am 5'11" and 165lb without gear. I find the Inferno to be very fast, and very agile, but it can be ...

Re: 13 year old paddler looking for boat. Relatively new to

... can find a used one or new-old-stock for a very reasonable amount of money. You might also consider one of Kaz's designs that is less edgy. (My Ignitor is a handful, but maybe less-so for someone 100 lb. Not sure.) Hope this helps, Shep

Re: Another "new boat" advice post

If you are very comfortable in the Viper, a Spark might be just the ticket. It will definitely be faster on any upstream move. Never paddled an Ignitor but I'm sure it would be faster still, due to a bit more length and its stiffer composite construction. Actually the Ignitor has enough rocker ...

Re: Another "new boat" advice post

Don't forget Kaz's Ignitor and Inferno...even faster, lighter, and better attainers :D And the Spark was based on the Ignitor.
If you slot the last 4 or 5 holes in the Royalite, you should no problem with cracking.

Re: Would you ever...

I bought the taureau, the cufly, and the ignitor unpaddled. Taureau was a good buy, cufly bad, ignitor is brand new to me, but I'm thinking good. I took a hit on the cufly when I sold it, but that is unlikely with a more general purpose boat like an option.

Good luck!

Re: Twister or Edge?

You might want to check out the Rayge, Ignitor or wait for Kaz's new boat. 13ft boats are quickly becoming a thing of the past... even at Millbrook. :wink:

(Said the guy the has a 13ft Edge and loves the Twister)

Wouldn't it be great if John would bring some down to ALF for people to try?
