Placids Flashfire is the...

Placids Flashfire is the old Bell Flashfire with a beautiful light layup and all the great paddling characteristics of this David Yost design. I am not a freestyle jockey but for my size (5'6",165lbs) this boat makes a great day paddler for twisty creeks and rivers. I mostly kneel but the boat is plenty stable for sitting with the standard footbraces. The boat is marginally slower than my Hemlock Kestrel but turns on a dime. Tracks fine for me with traditional J. Great small American company to work with.
