we have a JD pro 2, minor modifications over the initial version. full deck for racing and sliding seats. We bought it used from a pro-team. I think it may actually be slower than a Jensen V1, as far as I can tell having been in both boats with the same partner but then I find the JD more stable which eventually makes you faster when things get rough or you get tired. It leans better than a v1, and has a less sharp transition, a more forgiving secondary stability. I think it is called a softer chime. Long story short, we love the boat and have raced with it locally a lot. Import to Canada cots an arm and a leg though...

The Savage River JD Pro is a great boat. I have a Carbon Kevlar layup with the extended stern seat rails. The boat is very stable for a racing boat. I think it is more stable than my Wenonah AR or Wenonah V1A and 10-15% faster. The boat is good in boat wash during racing starts. It can be turned very quickly when leaned (be careful if your canoe is not decked, the gunwales will go under fast). It handles the wind very well. The workmanship is great. John Diller of Savage River is very easy to work with to get the boat setup to your needs.
