mystic, rocker, jefe comparison review

Jackson rocker, bliss stick mystic, and liquid logic jefe This is a comparison review of all three boats. I’m 6 foot 215-225lbs. size 11 feet. I love creek boating but don’t get out as much as I used to. My favorite runs are green lite, Watauga, laurel fork of doe, and little river. These days it’s mainly the little or the green and I’m paddling about 3-4x month instead of the 2-4x week I did over most of the last 12 yrs. I’m not much of a playboater but I still own one and have a blast at the ocoee when none of the creeks are running. I’m always on a search for the perfect creek boat. Favorites in the past were big gun and blunt. Most recent favorites are the rocker, mystic, and jefe. Here is a brief summary of my opinions of these three boats. Rocker currently my favorite mainly due to comfort, weight, dryness, and simple outfitting. It is a displacement hull with very little rocker despite the name. paddles differently than most of the boats I like. At my weight this...

good creeker/river runner

This is a good planing hull creeker. It punches holes really well, eddies well and boofs well. Speed is a little odd. In big water it sometimes feels a little slow but on steep low volume stuff it feels almost too fast. I think it rolls easier than the H3 255 but harder than the Diesel or Blunt. Outfitting is simple but effective. The plastic seems to hold up fairly well although the boat did oilcan after only a few runs but this could be partially due to my weight and my tendency to run shallow rivers. Overall a great boat and the price is much cheaper than most.

jefe is a great creeker

i agree with the review by graham. great hull. seems to work well on big water or steep creeks but i think it does better on steep low volume creeks. i have skinny bony knees so had to add foam to the thighbraces. keep the seat at center or move back slightly for best performance in my opinion. this boat boofs well, eddies well, tracks well, lands soft, punches holes ....it does everything well in my opinion. kevin addendum july 2006 comparison review rocker, jefe, mystic Jackson rocker, bliss stick mystic, and liquid logic jefe This is a comparison review of all three boats.

a great creek boat

a great creeker. no longer in production. if you are a heavy boater then move the seat all the way forward and prepare to enjoy some creeks. i would suggest putting foam under the seat due to hard landings from the flat hull. stock thighbraces and backband are crap. good plastic. kevin
