I need to contact Matt Hamilton to see if I can demo the new Pyranha Ammo. MEC rents the medium size Ammo, which I’ve tried, but I need to demo the small size (which I am more interested in) before I decide to buy one.
Maybe you can offer some advice then. I am 5’11 and weigh 170lbs. I want a playful river runner and I think the small Ammo would be ideal. The weight range is 120 to 198. I like the fact that it has good volume in the stern. It seems to me like a "micro creeker", with a flat hull which would lend itself to some good surfing and playing. What do you think? I tried the medium and it is much to big for me. It actually felt like a full-on creeker. I know the Recoil is a good river runner, but again I am partial to the distribution and shap of the Ammo line. Any advice would be appreciated.
