Finally took my Antix out for my first lap of the year on the Little White.
Sticking New Things
But I decided I would mess around and try as many things on the way down as I could, even if it meant landing on my head. Stuck some things, ate sh*t on some things, but it was a glorious lap!
We had a request to take a look at the line up of the following kayaks. The Pyranha Ripper, Dagger Axiom, Dagger RPM, Liquidlogic Braap and the Jackson Kayak Antix.
We’ve used a set of images from each manufacturer and then have scaled each image to create a composite comparison image. The image below (when click on) will open full size in a new window.

I really am liking the look of this boat. Planing hull, slices stern, nice rails, what is not to like!
A new creeking/river running kayak that is fun, easy to paddle, runs the river like a dream but with some groove in the hull design to allow for continual play all the way down! Take your time running rivers has never been more fun as you take advantage of every river wave, hole, splat rock, eddy line, pillow to your hearts content. The Antix turns quickly, squirts, spins, splats, and freewheels like a dream. The Antix is an easy boat to paddle in technical rapids helping you to cross comfort barriers more readily and has you learning to do more playboating moves each time on the water. The hull shape on the Antix makes it an easy kayak to roll. Its forgiving lines allow you to keep upright as you punch to the next level in your river running and play! Will be available in two sizes, medium and large.
Many thanks to Mike for allowing his photos to be shared via Unsponsored.
