I've owned this boat since…

Submitted by: paddleMT on 4/7/2020
I've owned this boat since summer of 2017. I'm an amateur WW kayaker. Three years ago when getting into WW kayaking, I rented a few WW kayaks, and eventually settled on a JK AntiX medium (I'm 5'10", ~185 lbs). What I like about the boat - has nice edges (can eddy out/in readily), it's highly stable, easy to roll in, is nice boat to learn how to surf, and decent bow for most large water (I mostly do class 3 creeking and river running). There are cons - I wish boat had more speed, as sometimes when I'm on 6-8 mile WW river trip, I have to paddle harder to keep up with the paddle buddies in larger boats, so it tracks OK, but would not recommend for long river trips. I do a lot of creeking in the spring, so sometimes wish I had more bow volume (antiX medium is about 63 gallons), but overall, I am pleased with the AntiX medium as it can do a little bit of everything (to a certain degree). Overall, great boat to learn in, with respect to rolling, surfing, and doing class 3 whitewater. If I were to do creeking full time, or multi day trips, I would probably select a boat with larger volume and that is faster. Overall, the antiX is nice in between on the playboat/river running spectrum. I am happy with the purchase, and looking forward to learning more tricks in this boat.
