     This is the ultimate river running kayak. Handles like a dream! Turns on a dime and yet not to much edge. The rolling is effortless. My weight is 165 and this seems to fit and balance out perfect. The seat is adjustable to give snug fit. Would recommend to anyone wanting a river runner or creeker.

     Just a quick initial review:
If you fit this boat it rocks. But you need to be flexible, 5'8"or under, less than 150lbs, with size 8 or smaller feet. The outfitting is great, as reported, the boat does way more than I can, somehow manages to leak, like all Daggers

I will leave a true performance review to someone who can dazzle you with tales of what this boat is best at. It's better at everything WW than I am. Very stable, fast, fun, but a very tight fit, requiring a break every once in a while to stretch the knees/hips/ankles. My inseam is 30" and I have the bulkhead jammed as far forward as possible, and the seat as far back as it will go, and still a wet exit requires some yoga moves to vacate the boat. Sit in one before you buy. I weigh 135, so an 8.5 was not an option. My old boat was a Response, which is luxuriously roomy/comfy if a comparison is fair. Which it isn't,cuz this boat can do so much more. Amazing and fun beyond words.
