    Default Swift Pack Canoe

    Anyone paddling one? Good, bad?
    I'm seriously thinking about getting one, they came out with new cruiser series, just not sure which model to pick?
    Now paddling a Bluewater Kevlar Mist, Scott Echo and just got rid of 16 Scott Tripper, also have a small fishing kayak.
    Might stop at Swift this summer and try one out.
    Hoping someone has experience with one.

    Took one into Algonquin park for a five day solo this spring. Liked it but not sure enough for the price.

    Tracked good nice and comfortable but could feel the compromise between the canoe and kayak styles. The paddling station was a little off with the tumblehome on the canoe sticking out just a bit too far. Minor but drove me nuts.

    Each to there own though, worth a test paddle for sure.

    Used a canoe paddle not a kayak or double paddle. It was the keewaydin 15.

    Price is up there for sure, but so is the rest of their products.
    That's what I was worried about was the compromise between kayak and canoe style.
    My Mist Solo is great, I would like something similar but a bit more stable.
    Thanks, that's the kind of info I'm looking for.

    Several bushcraft / outdoor guys on youtube have these boats. I'd take a look as a couple of guys use them regularly for decent length trips and seem to really like them. They're definitely a hybrid between a canoe and kayak - all seem to prefer using a kayak paddle in the pack boat.

    Thanks. Yes I think it’s one of those things that you need try out for yourself to be sure. Will stop at Swift and try one out.
