In following table I have listed the three main sizes of the kayaks and matched although some of the dimensions of a say a middle of the size range Mamba could also be easily compared against the smallest Code.Continue reading
How do the new breed of river running slicey boats compare to one another? We compare the Zet Chili, Titan Nymph, Dagger Rewind (medium), Jackson Antix 2.0, and the Exo Party Rexy.
A number of these kayaks are available in different sizes but we have selected the data for the sizes that are closely matched to the kayaks that are produced in one size only.
Zet Kayaks – Chili

It looks like Dagger have a prototype kayak that has broken out into the open. This is the Dagger Vanguard. It’s said to be faster than the Phantom but definitely looks shorter than the Green Boat. This means it must be around 10 feet in length.Continue reading
As a part of our celebration of the 23rd annual Green Race, and to raise money for the Green Race Conservation Project, Dagger Kayaks is “guessing” off this custom Dagger Green Boat tonight at The Salvage Station in Asheville, NC.
Dagger Kayaks are at the Gauley Fest this weekend with this great looking Dagger Phantom.
The boat will be raffled to raise funds for American Whitewater.
I thought my Dagger Phantom looked pretty good in red and was the best colour choice until I saw this special Phantom North Fork Championships colour scheme.
So after many years of images grabbed from videos and the odd image caught of the mysterious Dagger Phantom at certain paddling spots around the world we have got two here at Unsponsored HQ.
These two are part of the first batch into the UK. Even though the image above appears to show two differently sized Phantoms they are in fact the same.
