I own a Dagger Jitsu. I like it, although like many playboats it has its fans and its detractors. Generally though it is regarded to have a good hull shape, and, frankly, I find it hard to fit into other models simply because I’m one of those awkward people who has long legs for their weight.

I’m not going to be world champion any time soon, and if I was to buy a ‘dream’ playboat I’d likely be buying a carbon one. But there’s one thing about the Jitsu that most who know it can agree on. It is a lot heavier than it needs to be. In fact this very same criticism can be levelled at pretty much any modern boat on the market today.
It’s that Liquidlogic kayak again. Ryan Mcavoy has one of those slicey Liquidlogic prototypes and has posted a number of videos on-line. From other posts we know that this yet un-named kayak (Update: looks like the kayak is going to be called the Homeslice) is going into production. I would like this one to be my next playboat.
