A versatile boat for flat water and small whitewater runs.

Your tastes may politely pass as eclectic, but your family has other, more colorful ways of describing your wildly diverse interests. The Dagger Axis 10.5 Kayak adapts to your sporadic aquatic disposition, going from placid lakes to swift-moving rivers without skipping a paddle. Beginners will feel at home in this stable, planted boat, and intermediate paddlers with an appetite for whitewater will be able to push their boating boundaries on this versatile kayak.

Dagger took the best traits of whitewater boats then did a bit of genetic engineering by adding the preferred attributes from recreational boats to create the versatile Axis 10.5. The bow sheds water like a whitewater kayak, and the stern provides plenty of stability on rivers and lakes alike. The TruTrak adjustable skeg turns this boat into a floating bloodhound, allowing it to effortlessly track through water. When it's time to make some waves or push your paddling limits on a bit of whitewater, lift the skeg. A slight keel blurs into a slightly rounded bottom for steering ease when you're slipping down a slight drop along the river.

Comfort Fit Recreational Seating adjusts for a custom fit every time. The padded foam seat adjusts to accommodate your torso. If you're hitting the lakes on Saturday and running rivers on Sunday, the cockpit can be retrofitted with thigh braces. A mesh pocket attaches to the bow with bungees, and the stern hatch offers dry storage, though it's best to leave water-sensitive electronics at home or in the car. Soft-touch handles won't leave your palms raw when you're toting this boat to or from the put-in.

A Family Treasure

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've had this boat for a couple of years now. My whole family uses it for touring around calm rivers. It's been wonderful to have. It's easy to adjust to all of us, from my husband to my small teenagers. It doesn't have any body damage yet, and my husband is really hard on gear, so that is saying a lot. It also doesn't have any sun damage. It's only out in the sun for a few consecutive days at a time, though.

My husband and I have enjoyed taking it on the snake river, as well, which can have some class 1 white water, but it's mostly just fast moving water. Outside of that, we really haven't used it in whitewater, so I can't speak to that. That's why I just did the 4 stars.

Questions? Feel Free to hit me up directly.
