The P&H version was particularly ugly and had droopy points (this was well before the invention of Viagra). I remember a juvenile Richard Fox paddling it at Augsburg 1976. Regardless, it did not sell very well. Wasn't there also a kayak called a stiletto? P&H also made the Phaser II - which was like a Phaser but with 'wings'.
Re Fibo: the Epee would have been 1973 or 4, and the Epee XS 1976.
Thanks for the updates ... would that P&H pointy boat be the Hartung or Sting??
Stiletto, was made round by us by Avoncraft and is on the list ...
Thanks for the other updates ... all added.
Any more memories out there ...?? still missing a lot of dates ...
The STING was a Prijon design, manufactured (not for long) by Gaybo. Dave Mitchell won at Llangollen paddling one of these around 1975/76, and passed it on to me.
