The list of cons may look big but they are only very minor cons and the pros far outweigh the cons. I have not paddled this boat on any big waves yet but I have blunted it in very small ones so I think it will be a sick wave boat! IMO the best boat on the market at the moment for a plastic freestyle boat. If you are tall and light like I used to be (now tall and a bit heavier) I would get the large not the medium because you will be able to do so much more in a well balanced large boat than sitting right at the back of a smaller boat. Example. a kid that I paddle with paddles the rockstar small and weighs much below the "recommended" weight and he throws it about all over the place. He gets the biggest loops out of all of us! 4 people I work with have bought one and I will be next on the list!

one hell of a boat!

About the reviewer iv been paddling for about 2 years now and have been demoing lots of boats latetly so i have good comparisons. Test environment i paddled it at holme pierre point in nottinghamduring the paddlefest. there were lots of companies there to test all their boats. the coarse had just been re-opened after being remodelled. some very nice waves on there. nice shallow looping waves and big steep fast ones. Review I love this boat! i have to congradulate bliss stick on creating a boat for such a diversity of people. even the RAD range goes from 5'9" up to 6'4" so there is a boat for everyone. anyway back to the 185. i was suprised that i fitted into it a i have 36" legs and struggle to get into most small boats, i was even more supprised that i fitted in it with their thigh braces. i fitted in with the seating position about halfway to two thirds of the way back. plenty of foot room. nice set up with the outfitting. i was dmoing an old one so it looked a bit worse for ware but was still operational. flat...
