Re: Ion VS "mid-length" modern boats

I have owned ll of these boats and the 1st and 2nd generation Ion. The 2nd generation carries more momentum than the first but either one has much, much less momentum than your Outrage or other boats listed. I preferred the first generation for drops and ...

Ion VS "mid-length" modern boats

Any comparisons from people that have paddled the Ion and also paddled other shorter, more modern whitewater boats (option, octane, ledge lite, etc)? Coming from a 12ft Outrage, I'm curious as to what the momentum loss is between the Ion and other ...

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

I am 6-2 240lbs. I have paddled an Ion in a parking & play type of environment. I looked absolutely ridiculous in the thing but it was a very fun boat!

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

Update- I picked up an Ion. Only have used it at the WW Center. I am clocking in at 210lbs. As you would expect, any nominal amount of water in the boat makes a negative difference. I have solved the problem by using a 2-pump bilge which ...

Opinions Ion vs Blackfly original

... 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 shorter just sounds ...

Re: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

Whatever weight you are to use the Ion as a river runner means you will get some exercise. It is a short boat so not a lot of momentum. I paddled it down Clear Creek, Lilly to Nemo and had a blast. If you don't mind paddling a lot more than longer boats you can take it anywhere.

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: Blackfly Ion Max Weight

The boat is a blast. I had an original when my weight was higher than your range and loved it. I lost weight, bought a new one and it is also a fun play boat. The aluminum mold version has more momentum than the original but lost some primary stability. If you are looking for a fun, fun boat buy one...

Blackfly Ion Max Weight

Anyone 215-220 lbs paddling the Ion that can give a review?
I am considering one but have heard it may ride too low at that weight to be enjoyable.

Re: Condor vs Rebel

... more of a specialist boat in my opinion vs a do it all. If someone says they want a do-it-all boat.. I would recommend the Covert. Agent - Option/Ion Covert 9.3 - Octane 85/Condor Covert 10.5 - Octane/Condor Rebel - ? Firefly 14 - ? ^^ is more or less the comparisons I am comfortable making - ...
