The Dagger Mamba Creeker 7.6 Kayak is the water-bound version of a high-performance, luxury sports car: you can drive like Grandma on her way home from church, or you can cross currents and carve through eddylines like a hot knife through butter. Dagger took the versatile Mamba, outfitted it with the Creeker seat, to give you a forgiving boat that charges hard through rapids, boofs with the best of 'em, and won't get trapped by grabby eddylines.
The Creeker seat differs from the seat in the plain ol' Mamba in a few areas. Rotomolded, the Creeker seat is stiffer, making escapes easier. The step-out wall is stiffer, so shoulder schlepping is simple and stepping onto dry land doesn't leave you floundering like a fish out of water. An added storage tray does more than hold stuff; it enhances the hull structure, giving the boat a whiff more stability and rigidity.
Otherwise, this boat is everything you've come to love from the Mamba. The planing hull makes learning a breeze and ripping Class V whites downright gleeful. Bountiful bow volume and peak deck punch holes and deflect small chop so the boat stays up, bobbing the water's surface. Junk in the trunk takes a slightly different shape when you're stowing gear in the stern, but at the end of the day, the concept remains the same. In addition to storage space, stern volume forgives most of your mistakes and helps the Mamba ride high to avoid boils. Stable yet sassy, the Mamba won't get flippant with beginners while giving expert paddlers all the play they can handle.
