Re: Open boat for a bigger paddler

... there's A LOT more hulls to chose from when you're under 200 lbs! I agree with your approach - do not recommend a small solo canoe like a Solito, Zoom or Prelude if you want him to stick with it! Let him get some experience, build some skills and make his own choices if he wants to get ...

Re: ALF gearswap

Prelude, L'edge, Detonator, option, Octane 85, spark, Phantom, solito. Any shorter boat thats not going to trip up a 160lbs semi begginer. L'edge may be too heavy.

Re: Evergreen Solito Revisited

I'd recommend an Ocoee if you're okay with edges. Nova Craft is the current manufacturer and is doing a better job (layup and gunnels) than Bell did. Unless you have really good balance in a canoe, I wouldn't suggest a Zoom for someone your size and height. The polyethylene canoes are what's hot. Mo...

Re: Tips for an intermediate surfer?

... TonyB's recommendations on a neutral boat. I tend to think of it as paddling into a wave with a flat boat. On boats like the Ocoee, Zoom, and Solito that's incredibly important. Drop one of their sharp chines and you're off the wave in a hurry. But this rule applies to all boats. There are ...

... adjust. I feel this in the Prelude more than any other canoe I've paddled (Ovation, Outrage, L'edge, Phantom, Ocoee, Nitro, Detonator, Zoom, Solito, Maxim). That might just be a personal preference for the Prelude's kind of hull though--I'm sure others would disagree with me and say get have ...

... in that canoe). It certainly wasn't the first sub-10er, but it definitely wrote a new page in canoe design, helping pave the way to boats like the Solito, L'edge, Option, Ion, and Octane. It was also a canoe designed unapologetically for the experienced paddler and not trying to be all things to ...

Re: Ocoee coming back?

The 10' Ocoee was already done. It was the Evergreen Solito. Not well done, mind you, but the Solito was very Ocoee-esque, just shorter.

I'd agree... that an Ocoee/Viper/??? would be the next best logical step before going to a Prelude/Solito/Maxim/Zoom/??? i.m.o. Detonator isn't a bad boat by any means and a lot of people really like and still buy them new... it's just not my cup of tea. I wished you lived ...

I paddle a Prelude and my path to it was from an Ovation (very much like a Nitro) to a Phantom to a Solito, back to a Phantom, then the Prelude. I love the Prelude. But it should be pointed out that while it has great acceleration for a short boat, it is a short boat. It ...
