Re: Bullitt S vs Ride Eclipse, how do they differ?

I've paddled the Neutron X and I used to own a composite RV. I was very impressed with the X. The plastic is hard and the hull is stiff; certainly in comparison to the older plastic Mega boats, such as the Maverick, whose plastic was both softer and had a lot of flex. My impression is that the X is ...

Re: WWPF 2017

Tbh I don't remember seeing anyone taking the sort of pix you are talking about this year. Personally I thought this year was fairly quiet in terms of the numbers of people on the water - especially on the Saturday.

If you do a search for a thread on uploading pix you should find instructions as I know they've been posted previously. Just had a look at your site and there's some nice stuff; particularly like the dry bags.

Re: Loki or Axiom one boat for all dither

I would suggest the I3, probably one of the best plastic river boats in the surf, as well as on the river. The loki is clearly derived from the earlier i3; I used to surf one before i moved to composite surf=specific kayaks.
