Jackson got it right the second time around. The boat ferries, draws, boofs and does about everything else you could ask without a hitch. And, it rolls like a Jackson. With Fun series DNA, it surfs like a champ. It punches holes with ease and shrugs off big and funny water.
I like the cord/cleat adjustable backband. Precise and easy to repair, although there's little to break down. This model includes the same system for setting the footboard, enabling you to dial in the perfect position while in the kayak.
My only quibble is that it handles a little like a creek boat. In a river runner, I'd prefer a tad more length or less rocker.
