Verified Buyer Reviewed by KayakingKoncz from North Carolina on Wednesday, May 7, 2014Love this kayak. Maneuvers well and tracks well.
Reviewed by ca71447 from Fresno, CA on Thursday, November 12, 2009I owned a Catalyst 13 for over 3 years, and it is an excellent all around boat. Fast for its size, and very, very stable. I had taken it in up to just class 2 rapids and had no problems at all with it.

Reviewed by WaterWaterEverywhere from Alvadore, OR on Wednesday, June 3, 2009This boat is an all around winner, from casual Class I to Class III-V (which is where it really shines). The 7.5 is for everyone under 5'10 and less than 175lbs (beyond that you should consider the 7.8 or 8.1 instead). The boat is fully adjustable in the cockpit to a degree that is simply unheard of in whitewater boats. With the 7.5 Dagger proves it's the finest mass production whitewater kayak manufacturer the planet has to offer (no offense to Perception, Liquid Logic, et al). Sierra Trading Post as usual came through, and I purchased the last one as luck would have it (these are discontinued and it's obvious why they're so hard to find used...people simply don't ever give them up and friends have told me for over 3yrs that I need to hunt one down. I'm glad I did! The few I found online recently were simply not local and too expensive to ship).
- Best Uses: Rapids, Rivers
- Describe Yourself: Competitive
- Pros: Comfortable, Good Maneuverability
