Too big for me!
I'm a fifteen year old paddler who is quite new to playboating, but I have bought a Pyranha Prozone recently. I can hardly do flatwater tricks because of my weight and I am learning to paddle on moving water @ Holme Pierrepoint. My hand roll is bombproof (just in case you wanted to know that).
About the test environment
This was at a Desperate Measures demo day and the location was at the pond (practice gates) near the slalom course, OK hardly the place for a playboat but I am only a relative novice.
As you can probably tell by the title this boat practically swamped me but that is what you expect from a demo boat. It went quite quickly in a straight line for a playboat and turned fairly well. Burying the nose or even wetting the front was an impossible task for me so double pumping it was well out of bounds.
The I4 L is for someone a hell of a lot bigger than me. It is made for big water, I would probably use it for that but I wouldn't be playing in it. If it is comfort you're after, I would recommend this as the outfitting is as good as we have come to expect from Pyranha. But for me, the bad points seriously outweigh the good so I'm sticking to my trusty Prozone.
