Submitted: 09-02-2004 by Alex

This boat is basically a modern day (planing hull) version of the classic RPM. It has enough volume to give confidence on the water and is pretty stable. It is a great river runner and the outfitting is unbelievable. Dagger has done a wonderful job with the cockpit setup and this boat fits like a glove. Although I'm still a whitewater beginner, I have paddled a fair number of whitewater boats and this boat is on par with some of the better boats out there. The GT series probably is tailored more toward the beginner-intermediate level paddler and I expect to have fun and be challenged by it for many years to come. The GT rolls extremely easily (although not as easily as an RPM or a Necky Jive) and is a fairly forgiving boat. I have not noticed any catchiness in terms of the edges as the previous reviewer noticed but that may just be due to the differences in paddler weight or style of paddling. I'm 5'8" and 150 lbs. which makes me a good fit in this boat. The GT series comes in a 7.6 and a 8.0 model as well to tailor to the various sized paddlers. Although I'm sure there are equally good river runners out there (Riot Booster, Necky Jive, Pyrahna Inazone, etc.), this is a very respectable addition to the Dagger fleet and a wonderful boat to paddle.
