The only hesitation I had was whether to wait for the Jackson Super Star. However, that would have cost me $200 additional I don't have, and who knows when it will be available? I don't have a playboat right now! When the SS does come out, I bet it is going to totally bad-A. EJ has a lot of experience in the industry, not just design and paddling, and I would expect most everything Jackson puts out to kick booty.
I do think the KP 6.3 will its value well as a used boat when it comes tim to part ways bec. of comfort and downriver ability.
