The Millbrook Rival is the...

The Millbrook Rival is the same hull design as the no longer made Dagger Rival. Since it is made of Kevlar and S-glass, it is wonderfully light (34 pounds with saddle and straps installed). The light weight helps on the water but is wonderful off the water. It is so easy to carry and load on my car.

This canoe is quick and dry; it's a great all around white water canoe. My Millbrook Rival is strong, light and clearly made to be used rather than displayed. Even with paying for cross-country shipping, it was totally affordable.

The only reason I didn't rate it a 10 is the inherent trade-off that comes with paddling a composite w-w canoe. If you really use it, there will be occasional repairs. Just finished my first repair yesterday and it was easy.
