Dagger Axis 12 quality

Hi, I just bought a new Dagger Axis 12, and I was cleaning it after my first paddle and I fee like the plastic is a bit thinner/not as stiff than I expected (for the price), I flipped it over and it the bottom does flex quite a bit, if pushed in, is this normal, or was I just expecting too much (it is a 1k boat)?


All poly boats flex, esp the hulls. Unless something has changed, Confluence has good quality control on hull thickness. Your boat is OK.

I have a Dagger Stratos 12.5 that is a year and a half old. It is built like a tank - weighs as much as my 15’ triple layer Valley Gemini. Daggers are very tough boats - some flex in the plastic is definitely normal.
