Brian Vermillion recently got his hands on the new Pyranha Machno (small) and took it down the Cheoah.
Cheoah release was last Saturday, and I was lucky enough to get a full lap in while testing out the Pyranha Machno. I chose to use the Machno small, which ended up being the perfect size for me. At 5’5” and 150lbs the small Machno at 73 gallons was perfect for this gem of a run.
Side by side comparison of a Pyranha Machno, Pyranha 9r and Dagger Mamba 8.6. This is a great way to show off the size of the new Machno!
Thanks to the guys from Kayak Shed for letting us share this image.
Revealed at PaddleExpo 2016 the new Pyranha Machno. Is this new boat from UK based Pyranha about to take the whitewater market by storm?
New lines and new outfitting brings the Pyranha whitewater range bang up to date. The 9R has been a huge success over the last 12 months and the amount of interest in the Machno would suggest that this new boat will also be very popular.
There is definitely no footage of a prototype Pyranha Machno in action in this video!
Or is there?
There is definitely some great action on what may be the best river in the UK – The Upper Mawddach.
