LL's large sized river runner. It's a tad short to be considered fast, but that adds to the playability. It'll surf and flat spin, but is short on vertical moves. That's fine because it wasn't intended as a playboat. The hard release edges and defined rocker breaks provide more than enough mobility. The hull is high quality and well designed. The outfitting is a mixed bag. I like the hip pads and thigh braces in the latest editions. The bulkhead footrest is a bit difficult to adjust and cannot be done on the fly. There's ample grab bars that are well-placed. The backband is ratcheted, but is of a scallop design that can bite your spine when you lean back. The boat is predictable, but don't let the aft edges bite. Rollability is average. All in all, a fun river runner of high quality.
