  whitewater for your nephew and flatwater

for you, that's what I get from your post. I have paddled the rogue once on the upper new- a mix of flatwater and class II and III. The boat has a real old school feel to it- pointy and quick but it may feel unstable to a beginner in whitewater. Its definately a lot quicker than the xp, it doesn't plow through the flats but glides a bit. The Rogue is not as idiot proof on whitewater as its liquid logic competition and the rudder mechanism was messed up on the Rogue I paddled. I didn't sit in the Rogue long enough to know how it felt after an all day paddle. My nephew and I paddled some lakes in a perception mirage and the xp. The xp was slower but we preferred it to the mirage because it was much more comfortable. Comfort is a very important consideration on an all day flatwater water paddle. Not sure how the Rogue stacks up for comfort?
