I got a Diablo for free...

I got a Diablo for free and made the the retarded choice to test ride in a creek in North California that was flowing over 1600 CFS in mid Mach with rain and snow melt off,and that was my very first time kayaking need less to say that creek kicked my Ass, im a good swimmer and had a rope tied to Kyake and didn't hit my head on rock when i overturned 3 times,im going to stick to rafting for creeks and Rivers,but i will be taking the Diablo camping for lake fishing its tuff light strong and would make great lake fishing rig for me

This was the first kayak I...

This was the first kayak I ever had, Great boat for river running, maneuvers very well, long and fast enough to be very efficient on the river, Good volume for self support with no internal supports due to the manufacturing process eskimo used, a very tough boat mine is twenty years old and except for plenty of scratches is in great shape. Very roomy inside with a comfortable rubber seat and fully adjustable foot rest.

I have the Diablo model it...

I have the Diablo model it is very light comfy seating, but could use a bit more cockpit room. Very easy to make upgrades for fishing. I also paid a insanely cheap amount for it...

I bought the Diablo as a river running kayak, with lots of room for camping gear since there are no pillars. It tracks reasonably well, and surfs playfully. Timid as I am in moving water, I find this a safe and easy-to- control boat. Its flat bottom and rocker with blunt ends make it great for creeks, too. Seat is very comfortable, even on long jaunts. Eskimo products seem indestructible compared to other WW kayaks I see. And it's pretty, with nicer lines than you normally see in polyethylene boats! (Mine is yellow.)

This boat was all I wanted...

This boat was all I wanted it to be. At 6'3" I fit comfortably. With amount of rocker and volume it is good for big water or moderate creeks. This is not a planning hull rodeo boat but it is fun. I would buy another Eskimo product.

I've had a Diablo for a...

I've had a Diablo for a year or two now and would not get another boat unless I was looking for rodeo stuff. Runs everything great, has speed, handles well, and surfs (front, side) like a demon. Creekier stuff, big water, all o.k. for me (6'4" 190 lbs).

Good down river kayak up...

Good down river kayak up to class V-. Moderate volume keeps you on top, lots of rocker makes it easy to maneuver. Large cockpit with bulkhead rather than pillars makes it a comfortable boat even for me (6'2"). Good for play, but it's no rodeo boat.
