Having the versatility of an inflatable SUP appealed to me because the ease to transport and store was what I needed. Having two hard BIC SUP's already I was running out of room and ability to transport more boards when several of my family wanted to board. To me BIC means affordable quality and above average performance. Being used to my BIC Ace TEC wings I was not sure how I would feel on the inflatables. Of course there is a difference in feel but I found the inflatables to be just fine for an enjoyable time on the many lakes I paddle on in the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate NY. The heavy duty back pack, the pump and the 'board' itself are well made and I expect many seasons of service and fun from them. A great choice if a person is looking for the advantages of inflatable SUP's.
As I have aged it has become more important for me to find a boat that is easy to get into and out of, lightweight, comfortable and efficient to paddle. The Saranac has met and exceeded my expectations and I look forward to keeping this boat in my 'fleet' a long time.
Having other kayaks to paddle, I don't use this boat as often as I used to but I have taken many beginning paddlers out for their first time ever in the Dagger Specter and their favorable first experiences were formed by having a safe and stable feeling.
I would recommend anyone looking for a good used, stable, durable and comfortable boat to buy a Specter.
