First off - A++ customer service experience. Noticed a small construction flaw out of the box and they sent a whole replacement board fast, while allowing us to get out on the water with the defective board in the mean time. So far we've used our flyweights on a couple lakes and rivers every weekend since receiving it and absolutely love it. Fast, easy to manuever, very comfortable size. Lightweight, easy to pack all your gear into the bag and easy enough to hike it down to the beach, on the train, or into your car. Bought a couple big dry bags and we've loved being able to pack up our pump and board bag and take everything to another access point on the river or lake. Only recommendation I have for future badfish product enhancement is an adjustable shoulder strap and hip strap on the board bag for individuals under 5'5''... being 5ft I couldn't get it small enough without it crunching heavily on my shoulders so most of the weight remained on my shoulders while carrying.
This one is different. It is faster and funner. I have a different inflatable board that I use in multiple roles. I have also used other inflatable SUPs. I got this for my wife and when she isn't looking I take it out as much as I can. If you think you don't need to go faster, you haven't spent much time on the water. Faster is always better. This is stable, lightweight and just cut through the water. This is a rocket!
