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.
By request here is a quick run down of the specifications of the sub 9ft category whitewater race kayaks – Pyranha 9R Vs Zet FIVE Vs Dagger Phantom Vs Waka Gangsta Vs Jackson Kayak Nirvana vs Titan Rival.

Big competitions are always a great place to catch some of the latest kayak designs. This years Sickline was no different with new Dagger Phantom, Pyranha Machno, Exo T-Rex, and Waka Gangsta in attendance.
Check out just a few of the kayaks that were spotted at Sickline 2016.
We had images of the prototype here on Unsponsored a few weeks ago and they received a huge number of hits. We will be seeing loads of these on the water over the next few months.
