This boat has been in the making for absolutely years. We’ve had lots of Phantom news on Unsponsored for some time including #TheMystery kayak which was indeed the Dagger Phantom.
@chrisgragtmans gives us the rundown of the Phantom, a long-cooking @daggerkayaks passion project realized to create a more dynamic, race-ready performer (in one size just shy of 9 feet, at 89 gals.). With low stern rocker and parting lines designed to create a faster hull that won't put paddlers in the back seat, as Gragtmans explains, the Phantom moves "like a 9-foot Green Boat."
We’ve had the detail on this one for sometime and you’ll may have seen some images and video starting to appear on Instagram (see above).
So this boat is going into production and will be available in 2018. Will we be getting one in at Unsponsored HQ? Of course we will.
