Review Detail

Karma L
Boats & Boards
Overall rating 
Value / Money 

Absolutely love the boat and would absolutely recommend to any bigger yaker. Makes everything I paddle about one full class easier. However, I bought a playboat in addition to my Karma Large to get some more exitement out of my local rapids during lower water.


About Me
I paddle up to class 4 and feel pretty solid up to class 4-. Have not yet paddled any 4+.
Pros / The Good
Flared sidewalls with hard rails that do not catch un-intentionally; fast; great secondary stability; very forgiving; very easy rolling (boat feels like it snaps up on its own if rolled up over 90 degrees, likely due ti the flared sidewalls and the great secondary stability; first boat i ever had that comfortably floats my weight; I like the Jackson outfitting with the adjustment by strings and jam cleats. I also like the shock absorber function of the foot plate. Inside carrying grip to hold when carrying on shoulder. Boat is very dry with a broad rim and no holes through the hull. Great customer service.
Cons / The Bad
The big size has its weight but still a little better than most other big boats. Jackson boats are on the higher end of the price spectrum. Makes anything up to class 3- rather boring.
