Submitted by: mike13 on 2015-02-25
Summary: I tried this board out on a lake, still water. I had a friend that owned one and we took it along with my board and swapped for the day. As others have said this is an incredibly stable board, especially in still water. almost like being moored to the dock. It was an easy paddle as well. It was seemed very well constructed.
Pros: Stable, well built.
Cons: from what friend said he paid seems a bit pricey. personal preference I don't particularly like inflatables.
Usage: day trip to lake

Summary: This board has by far the shortest learning curve of all the different inflatable boards I have ever tried. I am able to walk front to back and side to side without tipping. I take my dog out with me and she moves around a lot and I have not lost my balance once.
Pros: Very stable, fun the use, Good in small waves
Usage: Exercise, touring, small surfing, taking the dog out on the lake

Summary: this is a very well manufactured durable board that has a unique triple chamber design.
Pros: The board is extremely stable and is great in moving water, wakes from powerboats, and waves. weighting the tail allows easy turns.
Cons: the overall width of this board does appear to have some affect on the top speed
Usage: I use this board for River touring on flatwater and for easy Whitewater.

Summary: The Badfish MCIT 11'6 inflatable is an interesting board. Super staple, fast for an inflatable, and you can pile kids or gear on it. The board looks different than other boards thanks to the side rails. But this board is popular enough that other paddlers won't think anything of it. There are a couple negatives about this board. The price, it is not cheap. Makes it hard to pull the trigger on this board when there are other boards that do similar things for a lower price. The other issue, water on the deck. When using this board for it's intended purpose, whitewater, this is not an issue. But try this board in flatwater and you may end up standing in a puddle. I've been told that if you pump this board to the correct PSI, it doesn't happen. I have not had any luck with this. I typically end up standing in a puddle. However, I really liked this board. It is super stable and fun to paddle. I could probably do cartwheels on this thing. It has good glide and paddles well. This board is a staple on the rapids used by some of the best. I just wished I didn't stand in a puddle when I paddled it on flat water.
Pros: A great river runner
Cons: Pricey and wet feet
Usage: Whitewater and touring
