We just ran our brand new purple Jag down the Main Salmon, 100 miles of med-big flows, and had a fabulous ride. My wife and I have a Wildcat, an Ocelot and now this Jag. We just can't get enough of our Boats from Aire. The jag is just bomb-proof. Talk about a feeling of security in Big Water. Even loaded the Jag just punches right through big waves and knifes through wild and calm water with ease. This boat has serious "class" and is the best looking craft on the river. I would not hesitate running this boat down class 5 white water. It handles class 4 without a flinch. We have 66 inch wide NRS frames for our catarafts and find it perfect for the Jag as well. 72 inch frames are fine too, but the 66 inch performs better we think. Looks better too. Awesome boat for gear and 2-4 people on a long river, and a great day runner with lots of passengers! The new rocker on the tubes is perfect! Thank s Aire!
