You like to run the steeps. You do it in the company of friends you can trust. You scout the lines, set up safety. But when you get in your boat, leave the eddy to aim for the horizon line, you’re really going ... Oh wait, that was the blurb for the Solo!
Truth is, the goals of creekboat design haven’t changed. But our knowledge of kayak design and the interaction with turbulent water in the most extreme conditions has changed. Feedback on designs is more comprehensive and more precise than ever before. Our understanding of the complex fluid dynamics involved has improved dramatically. Combine all these facts together and the perfect conditions are set to create the safest, most forgiving, most capable creekboat ever designed.

The Bazooka is the result. It is fast, yet manoeuvrable. It is stable, yet responsive. It is precise, yet forgiving. It doesn’t stop for anything unless you want it to, and it doesn’t lead you where you don’t want to be. It boofs like a charm and tracks well. It handles rocks and big volume and steep drops equally well.

Pros / The Good
resufaces well on drops. very stable in cross currents and boily water. out fitting is comfortable. really like the bulk head and thigh hook design.
Cons / The Bad
big tank of a boat. takes lots of effort to get into tight eddies. buckles in the outfitting tend to work loose on the hip pads. have to readjust after paddling.
