I am not big on plugging products, but when I find something that I think is this good I just have to share the love. The funny part of this story is that I had all but given up on buying another Dagger boat. I bought a G-force 6.3 last year and it showed me no love. I was torn between getting the G-ride 6.5 or the Kingpin 6.3. I am 6'1", 220 lbs, and size 11.5 dogs. I am a solid class IV paddler, just getting really into the play aspect. The small water here around Salt Lake City, led me to decide on the Kingpin. The boat arrived the other day and I took it for a spin that night. All I can say is hol-ga-lee-mog-a-lee!!!!!! I went up to the small little Tagart hole on the mighty Weber which is wailing out a whopping 300 cfs. The Kingpin 6.3 is the shnizzle for hizzle. I was rocking the flatspins, got some great cartwheels. Usually you tag the rock in the hole if you go to deep, but I didn't get one whack in this boat. I cannot wait to get this bad boy upto the Snake to see how it performs on the big water. The boat is also suprisingly quick for such a short boat. Plenty of room in the boat, comfortable for a playboat too. Anyway thats my 2 cents.....catch you down the rio.
