Prism vs Magic
Posted by: duckhunter on Apr-20-13 5:51 PM (EST) Category: unassigned
I read that Bell is now back in business and they are listed by Piragus Northwoods. I would specifically like to know:
1. How does the Magic compare to the Prism mainly for flat water paddling? I have a Prism but have never paddled a Magic.
2. If buying a Magic what are the advantages of the black lite over the kev light disregarding the weight and price difference?

I don't know what the layup of the Magic is. It may NOT be the same schedule Bell used.
Look at the Piragis video|

that they sent with their last e-mail newsletter. They show the first boats delivered by Bell. There is a pretty close shot of the bow of one of the boats that shows the fiberglass cloth wrapped around the bow all ragged and uneven. It looks like s**t! I don't think anyone who pays more than $2,000 for a canoe wants something that looks like that.

It appears that Bell has finally incorporated the best of the Old Town Pack and the old Bell Magic to create the new Bell Magic. By appearance, it still makes hot chicks yearn for whoever paddles it, but it has retains some of the extra speed of the magic. Overall, it's a nice offering.
That was almost the greatest post ever!|

If only you'd said: "By appearance, it still makes hot chicks yearn for whoever paddles it, and it retains some of the extra speed of the pack."

Magic is more maneuverable and sea-kindly than Prism, but the latter is a touch faster. Prism'bottom mounted slider is the better seat.
