My wife and I purchased this canoe 3 years ago and have absolutely loved it. We have several other canoes but have not touched them since purchasing our Buffalo. It is light, durable and strong through class II rapids. This canoe is hand built to last plain and simple.

My son has a Buffalo Canoe we bought him for his High School graduation in 2005, and he’s floated thousands of miles in 15 years and still loves it! So much, we just went to Jasper and bought 2 more from Gary this past weekend! Fantastic product and great person running the company!!

Submitted by: cayates07 on 6/4/2020
I do not currently own a Buffalo Canoe but I have paddled in many. By far, the only canoe that I would invest my money in. Gary Gordon, the owner, cares about the quality of each and every canoe that rolls out of his shop. These canoes are built one at a time by hand and the craftsmanship shows. In Arkansas, most canoe rental places have a fleet that consist of these canoes because they stand up to the use and abuse of people that are renting them, many of which have no experience. When Gary states that he wants this canoe to last you a lifetime, he means it. Not only your lifetime, but a product that will be passed down for generations to come and enjoyed by all. When I have the money to invest in a canoe, there is no need to look any further because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Buffalo will be the canoe that I choose.

Submitted by: paddler790298 on 6/4/2020
Buffalo Canoes are tough as nails! Mine is over 10 years old and still floats like new. They handle whitewater and technical corners with ease. They are also great for overnight camping trips, as they hold all of your gear without compromising the boat’s ability to maneuver down river. I wouldn’t own anything else! And they are made in the USA!!!

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 3/20/2019

Buffalo canoes has been manufacturing boats for decades, and I bought my first one a few years back, though being nearly as old as I am and retired from two separate rentals. I wouldn't be afraid to tackle any water with my BUFFALO. The new T-Formex are obviously manufactured with much stronger plastic if you've ever seen a comparison (and are any deeper than most are in the canoe world.) The new boats must be built for battle in even the roughest of water.

Buffalo is back! Same amazing 16' Buffalo canoe design, but with the new T-Formex material. Initial tests from myself and others have shown this new material to be just as durable and slightly less weight than Royalex. It's a great time to be looking for a canoe!

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 3/5/2019

Recently bought a new Buffalo TFX canoe for Xmas. It is absolutely a beautiful boat. So far I've only paddled on flat water since I live in Louisiana, and I can't wait to get it on the Buffalo! It is very stable on lake water. It is light enough to make it easy to load and portage. I love the ash wood webbed seats, thwarts (one is a yoke) and handles. They are beautiful. The staff is amazing, especially Joe, who worked with me. They have followed up more than once to make sure I am a satisfied buyer. If you are looking for a tandem/solo canoe, you can't go wrong with a Buffalo TFX.

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 2/27/2019

I had a used buffalo canoe I purchased from a local that had been passed from 2 other locals and originally bought for rental use. You could tell by some of the creases and scratches that the Boat had been through alot but still did fine for about a 25 year old boat. I decided I was going to purchase my favorite color in one of the new boats so I could charish it for the rest of my life and I've loved floating it ever since!

Submitted by: crozzy89 on 2/27/2019

Picked up a 16' Buffalo Canoe made from the toughest material out there... T-Formex. I also own a 16' Royalex Buffalo and the new material is stronger than ever. I have ran it twice so far (purchased in December) and it truly lives up to the "Buffalo" name. I have outfitted the boat to run tandem or solo (runs great solo whitewater).

This boat even survived the "polar-vortex". I had the boat outside in 50mph+ winds and it smashed into my trailer. I have YET to find any damage on the boat from getting thrashed.

So yourself a favor and purchase a boat that will last you a lifetime. Best hull and best staff you could find. Thanks guys!

Submitted by: guest-paddler on 2/27/2019

This is the best canoe you can buy. It is the best fleet boat, but it can also be built with a more personal touch. If you need a boat for a lifetime this is boat you want to buy. A 16 buffalo is perfect for solo paddling or tandem. Don't waste money anywhere else.

Submitted by: Buffalo-River-Rat on 2/27/2019

I have been paddling Buffalo Royalex boats for years, and they were the real deal. I have gotten to paddle and see the new Buffalo TFX boats in the last few weeks, and as much as I loved Royalex, the new generation of ABS has arrived and is a wonderful improvement. These new Buffalo TFX boats are tough and built to last several lifetimes! The boat handles like a dream whether being paddled solo or tandem. Incredibly stable and forgiving on pushy Class II water. The new camo colors are a beautiful addition to the old standard color palettes. Buffalo Canoes Manufacturing is an industry leader in high-quality ABS boats. After working for several years at different canoe consessionaires, Buffalo Canoes have held up better after hundreds of trips down river than any other boat I have seen put through the same beatings by livery operations.
