I had the opportunity to demo a Classic 10 which is Kevlar. Very nice little boat, but too beamy for me.
I also tried the New Tricks 12, Kevlar/Carbon, and liked it very much. It has wood trim, and as much as I have loved my adorable Vermont canoe, I will never have wood on a boat again. So I am interested in the Black Jack New Tricks 12 which is Kevlar Matrix/Carbon and no wood; the same design as the New Tricks 12. I found it to be a very maneuverable, comfortable boat. I'm pretty sure I want one.
I'm finding it a little hard to put a 50% deposit on a boat I've never paddled, though. Wondering if I will like the material, will it be noisy, etc.
KIm, maybe next year! They don't actually have the boat I'm interested in in stock right now and won't be making any until the weather warms up.
Sure would be nice if Hornbeck would get some boats down here for people to try.
A name other than "New Tricks" would be appreciated, too---sounds a little like a creative lady of the night.
