Bottom line is, I've had a Nomad, Diesel, Jefe and now paddle a Jefe Grande, but have kept the Gus in spite of them all... I've been forced to start using other boats day-to-day as I'd rather not break my old worn out Gus: I'll probably never get another, and it's just too good a boat to loose!
Running Class IV+ frequently and sometimes stepping it up to Class V when I feel like it, mainly shallow rocky stuff.
Has the older LL outfitting, the backband hurts like hell if you're paddling without layers on in the summer time, and it's a sod to get it up and out of the way to put large items in the back.
