2007 Rocker Series: After two years in the Rocker and with extensive feedback from our hardest users, the Rocker enters a new era of creek-boat performance – in 3 sizes!

Refined rocker transition delivers auto-boofing characteristics to this fast, stay-on-line design

More Leg Room for entry and exit

Raised, catch-free edges for the most challenging cross-currents

Boat Armor equipped for a rock-solid hull with “Uni-shock” impact-absorbing bulkhead system.



•Note from EJ: With Clay Wright, Jay Kincaid, Ben Stookeberry, Jesse Coombs, Phil Boyer, Boyd Ruppelt, and Stephen Wright all paddled the classic Rocker. We received incredible feedback for the design of this new series of Rockers. The Rockers will quickly become your creekers of choice because of the incredible all-day comfort, no-holes / no leak construction, Cross-link plastic, and light weight.

Review

This round-hull creeker is designed to boof where others flop. With continuous rocker under the seat for amplitude and the biggest, highest bow on it's size class it's so easy to keep your bow up - and even when your bow drops it will scoop back up till about 70 degrees of pitch.
Relaxed primary stability lets you hold a lean when bouncing down slides and there are NO EDGES to trip you up - hull or deck! We've exaggerated the secondary stability so you can hang on that 45 degree lean till you get your brace under you. When you do flip, the rockered, round shape of the boat helps you get upright easy and fast.

Outfitting is geared for creeking too: HUGE cockpit with molded-in thigh hooks for quick entry and exits, no screws to leak ever, and a shock absorbing bulkhead to keep you smiling when your lines don't go as planned. Drain-plug of course.

Strengths: awesome Boof-ability, secondary stability, outfitting comfort, super-forgiving performance in all conditions.

Weaknesses: rounder hull than a playboat may take a run or 2 to get used to, tall cockpit area fits short paddlers best with a Sweet Cheeks 200 for added 'lift'.

Conclusion

If you want to take your creeking skills to the next level or are having trouble with your roll or boof - try this boat!
