A few of that are paying attention may be starting to recognize me by now. I’m still trying to find my first boat. I’m close to being sure I’m going to buy a used Pyranha Recoil for $300. I spoke with a guide I know that runs the same river I’ll be using it the most on and she said it would be a great choice. I forget which boat she has exactly but she said it is similar to what she has only a generation or two older. I am hopefully going to get to ask a couple others about it today as well including my roll clinic instructor.
I’d like to also ask here since I’m sure some of you know about this boat and can give me the pros and cons. Based on the description I think it’s pretty close to what I’m looking for. That would be a river runner primarily that can only do some playing. Most of the trips I’ve been on with the guides so far have seemed to work out that way. The people in hard boats get to hit a few spots and play for a couple minutes before catching back up with the rest of us on a variety of us on IK’s and rafts.
Thanks for any advice!
