Re: Boat size

The first Fusions didn't have a size on them. Mine didn't. It'll be a "medium". My Nirvana is an early one & that doesn't have the size on it either. Later ones do. Early runs often seem to be a medium then, if it's popular, they produce a large & start putting sizes on them... D Thanks you very mu...

Boat size

Bit of a funny question ? Do all boats have the size on them ? From my observation I think most do , Only asking because I was interested in a Pyranha Fusion I saw on a selling website, I asked the size . They said " to tell you the truth I don't know " The fusions I've seen have a S, M or L on the ...

Re: What kayak to get

If you’re only doing flat water you might get away with a bulkeaded touring kayak such as a bolero, it’s not too slow, it’s easy to turn Skeg up, goes straight Skeg down. It won’t like the rough stuff as well as a proper sea kayak.. Later development lead to the dagger stratos, which is a Jack of a...

Re: What kayak to get

What’s your budget and what paddling do you want to do? If it’s coastal play you are probably looking for a different boat to something for distances and crossings. People will recommend boats they paddle but that doesn’t mean they will suit you in either fit, or handling characteristics. If you do...
