  Black Gold

I am not familiar with the current offerings and have only test paddled a Magic.

As far as layup goes, I would go for the Black Gold over the KevLight any day. And I own a Bell Northwoods in KevLight.

The black gold is far more durable for a very small weight penalty. I have seen Black Gold Northwoods canoes that have been pounded on pretty hard and while they show the marks on the surface, they held up like concrete.

My Northwoods is KevLight, and I haven't had any problems with it at all. When I bought it, the shop was closing and I got a really good deal on it (no black gold available for the deal I got). I love the canoe for tripping, but would have more confidence in athe BG layup.
