The Dagger Mamba 8.6 is…

Submitted by: kayakgirlygirl on 7/29/2019

The Dagger Mamba 8.6 is beautifully constructed and will hold up to loads of abuse. Its a bit heavier than expected, but easy to carry thanks to the sturdy hand grips at both ends. The kayak comes with extra foam pads to customize the fit for smaller people. Comfort and fit for larger people is stiff and just ok. On the water, the Mamba glides smoothly and cuts through rapids with ease. This is a good solid kayak for a novice whitewater learner.
