Although I just paddled the boat on waves at sea, to me, all the aspects Dagger mentions about this boat are confirmed.
It is fun to paddle and very easy to get used to. Because it is so balanced it is also a good playboat for a beginner, to my opinion.
I'm happy to be back in a Dagger playboat again!

About Me
Just tested the Jitsu wave-surfing at the North Sea coast.
I'm 1.90 m and 88 kg, so perfect for the Jitsu 6.0
First impressions:
Pros / The Good
The boat feels like my old (favorite) Kingpin, but then with all aspects of a modern playboat! It is fast on big waves and easy to get airborn with it. It moves quick, sharp and carves like hell. It is a very balanced boat. Big fun paddling it!!
The quality of the outfitting is very good, as always by Dagger.
Easy to adjust the boat to your own personal comforts.
Cons / The Bad
Coming from the JK Rockstar M, I needed some time to get used to more volume around me. With smaller waves I struggeled some to get speed out of it, but with big(ger) waves this boat comes alive and speed is no issue anymore!

Additional comment: Moving the seat a few inches to the front and sitting more in center of the boat had a (more) possitive effect on the performace of the Jitsu. Now the boat is also faster on smaller waves and spins more easy.

Pros / The Good
Nice balance between playboating, creeking and waterfall-running action. Nice interviews but not too much talking. The more you watch it, the better it gets. After watching you want to go out and be in your boat.
Cons / The Bad
its not as adventures as Blackbook or Dreamresult, but is still a good DVD!
It's over befor you know it, but maybe that is a pros instead of a con :).
