Whether you're a retired pro football player who is trying to learning a new sport or a whitewater fiend who spends days on the river, the Dagger Mamba 8.6 Kayak fits your frame or your gear for a full week of frothy fun. This is the biggest boat in the Mamba line, and the tech stays exactly the same from the 7.6 through the 8.6. Versatile enough to sate the cravings of beginners and experts through class V, you may not need another boat for years to come.
The planing hull hits the two 's' words that matter to paddlers: stability and spin. First timers shouldn't be under water before touching the paddle, and master river runners should bring along a barf bag in case they get dizzy. Sharp edge transitions in the middle taper towards each end for diety-level forgiveness. A voluminous bow and peak deck keep the boat well above water and help you slip over aquatic obstacles with ease. The stern volume gives you room to stow a portage pack as well as room to make mistakes without severe consequences.
The blend of rocker with the planing hull gives the Mamba moves over the open water. Scream in front of the slowpokes as you hug a tight line into the next eddy. Boofing in this boat is beautiful. On the off chance you biff a rock boof, the reinforced boot bulkhead footbrace system prohibits you from wrapping any part of your foot in front of the bulkhead so you can walk, not limp, away. The Ergo Contour Outfitting system helps you customize the fit for optimal comfort and maximum paddling efficiency.

Dagger Mamba 8.6 Kayak Reviews:


I usually paddle 2's and 3's with the occasional 4 or 5 - It has been exceptional. I learned on a Liquid Logic Gus, so I was doubly excited with the comfort and longevity of my ride with the outfitting. The edge does, in fact, catch an eddy with no problem, but might surprise you if not used to it. I was quickly accustomed to the new feel, no major problems with that. The ability to roll in this boat is unbelievable. I would easily say that if I had not learned to roll previously this would most likely have allowed me to create some nasty habits... it is that easy to roll. I have been very pleased with the purchase of this model. Highly recommend to the all around kayaker.

I'm quite a large guy around 6ft tall and was around 230 pounds when the large was released so I got a demo straight away. I loved the speed, how easy it was to boof and the added volume over the old design. The only negative thing I can say is that sat inside I found the boat quite narrow in the hips and very tight which I didn't expect as it was the large. All I can say is Dagger I love this boat but if its a large make sure a large person can get in it comfortably.
