The owners of this company...

The owners of this company are very nice and dependable. Wonderful products and service. I am so glad to see them back in business.

We have owned a 16 Buffalo...

We have owned a 16 Buffalo Royalex for over 20 years. Never has it failed us. We understand that the new T-Formax is even better. We will soon be in Jasper to visit with Gary Gordon and purchase one of these new 16 footers. Can't wait to get it on the Buffalo. We are going to pass on our 16' Royalex to our grandchildren. The T'Formax will be left to our great grandchildren. FLOAT ON!!!!

Buffalo Canoes only makes...

Buffalo Canoes only makes one thing, and they make it to perfection. If you want the toughest 16' canoe known to man, buy a Buffalo Canoe. I owned their Royalex Model for like 8 years, and I only traded up to their T-Formex model because it was a great deal I found on Craigslist. Holy shmoley Batman. I'm convinced that you could steam roll T-Formex and it would still pop back into shape.

BEST CANOE ON MARKET NEW...

BEST CANOE ON MARKET NEW T/FORMEX IS FAR SUPERIOR TO ROYALEX BUFFALO CANOES ARE BACK IN BUSINESS IN JASPER ARKANSAS THE HULL IS THE FIRST CANOE MOLD MADE IN THE 60 AND STILL THE BEST LOVE THIS BOAT SHOULD LAST A LIFE TIME.

Bad news was Buffalo...

Bad news was Buffalo Canoes had stopped making canoes because of the Royalex issue. Just heard they are getting ready to start production with t formex. Woohoo! They make a great canoe.

Grew up in Jasper and...

Grew up in Jasper and spent many of summers on the Buffalo. Lots of float trips in a buffalo canoe. It's steady, sturdy, and very durable... can't wait for the t-formex boats to hit the rivers!

Being an Arkansan, it was...

Being an Arkansan, it was only fitting to have a canoe that is made in Arkansas (Jasper to be specific). I had seen them for years on the rivers and saw there durability. Now that I own one, I can confirm its one great canoe. It weights 67 lbs., so its fairly easy for one person to handle. Very well made. Its made of Royalex (sorry to you folks who didn't get a Royalex canoe sooner), so it easily goes over the rocks.
Love it.
I understand Buffalo Canoes is going to start production again, with a new material. I can't wait to see it.

We used the 16 ft Buffalo...

We used the 16 ft Buffalo canoe on a trip down the Buffalo last year. The boat was a good match for it's namesake river. Seats were very comfortable; the royalex layers gave the boat a solid feel over rocks and through waves...

This is one great canoe...

This is one great canoe and its named after the first national river. Its simple, but gets the job done. They have stopped production for now because of the royalex problem, but hopefully they will figure out another material to use.
