Just took this Sabertooth down the Upper Animas River (Silverton CO). What an amazing cat. The acceleration is unbelievable , it practically ferries by itself, easy to bump over stuff. What a boat! The carry handles make it a breeze to transport. I could use some better foot pockets, but not so much to take off a star. If your in the fence about this boat, get off, and get in the river!
I'm now on my 3rd Charge HR this year, so I'm deducting a star for durability. Let's see if the third time is a charm. I'm starting to thing that $150 might not be worth it...
The retention of the co-pilot is pretty awesome. Knife has a good weight and feel in hand. Loss of a star for the grip wearing pretty fast, but commercial use is fairly hard on most things.
This is what the professionals use when a river-ing.
Let's go River-ing.
Let go river-ing!

Pad provides the minimal amount of comfort for the weight. Sometimes I get little pools of condensation in the cups.
Bought back in 2007, 9 years later it's still going strong. The lighter even works.
Pro Tip: work clean. Strip all old tape and funk off wheel. Get the right width. You can put the wheel back in the frame while you install tape to get good tension on it.
They don't last forever, but think about the torture you put it through. You bite it, pull it on and off to clean it, toss it in the back of your truck for a week in the hot sun or freezing cold. It's best to have the mindset that this is a consumable part.
It's been a bit of a trick to find the optimal spot for the switch. But once you find it...
Sometimes this fitting comes loose. Keep an eye on it and keep it tight.
Can fit a variety of bar shapes from round to foil. These attachment points slide fore and aft about 8ins to accommodate where your bars are.

This is the newer grease gun that comes with SC full suspension bikes. It's not as easy to use as the older version which was much more like a traditional grease gun.
