We love it when customers take the time to randomly send us their feedback on our boats! Check out this one we received yesterday from Brian on the Dagger Axiom. While we get a lot of reviews for new paddlers loving the boat, we also find that old hands at the sport are loving it as well.
Just test paddled an Axiom 8.5 I'm a 52 year old intermediate paddler and all I
can say is- wow! I will be picking one up. For us mere mortals, there was nothing this boat did not do… Continue

We've been proud of the loud, excited feedback we've gotten since the launch of the Dagger Axiom series. Here's the latest praise from one of Britain's largest paddling publications.
"...but the Axiom is the real deal, it really is great at everything and that’s going to make it a very attractive option for those who don’t
want a quiver of expensive plastic stacked in the garage and are looking for that one-boat-does-it-all package.… Continue

From Lunch Video Magazine - Pat Keller has been on the river since he was 3 years old. A two time Green Race Winner, Teva Mountain Games Champion, and all around multi-sport athlete Pat is easily argued as one of the best paddlers in the world. This is an action packed segment with Pat showing us how it is done. Available in full on LVM #33.
Check out this blog post forwarded over by Rush Sturges from the Dream Result World Tour kickoff.
Last night The Great Outdoors put on a great show – They hosted the launch of The Dream Result Movie. I haven’t seen so many paddlers in the one place, so far away from water in quite a while (ps, WHERE the hell is all the water?). If you weren’t there you can see the trailer at the bottom of…
Check out an awesome review of the latest film by Rush and Tyler, Dream Result, from Canoe & Kayak Magazine. Here's an excerpt:
If for some reason you’ve become jaded to high definition kayak movies since the fall of the Teton Gravity Research flicks, then I beg, no I plead, that you see Rush Sturges’ and Tyler Bradt’s Dream Result, already a winner of Germany’s Rosenheim Kayaking Film Festival.
Rapid media released the Reel Paddling Film Festival Award Winners today, check them out! Congratulations to everyone who participated and the winners. With the largest premiere audience in festival history and a great set of films, it looks like the festival will continue to grow in prominence year after year.

Results are posted up over at BoaterTalk for the recent Millrace Massacre and Iceman Championships on the Saluda River in Columbia. Team Dagger Manager Andrew Holcombe came out on top in both competitions.
Posted over at BoaterTalk
..Saturday we set a few records with the most racers ever in the Massacre (42), the coldest race on record, as well as the highest water level for the race. We are hoping that we don't have the mix up with the level again anytime…Continue

If you're in the market for that all-water kayak that does a little bit of everything, but does it all well, check out the new 2010 Dagger Axis series. We designed the boat as something of a hybrid, but gave it options to push the performance limits at each end of flatwater and moving water so that it's a boat that grows with you.
CKS reviewed it recently over on their blog, and they did a good job putting the Axis to the test doing what we said it will do. Find out how it performed,… Continue

As his sponsor and as his friends, all of us at Dagger wish Rush Sturges a speedy recovery. Rush sustained an injury while running Bonito Falls (80-feet) in Argentina.
According to an email from Rush, who is still in South America, he broke his back, but expects a full recovery. “Luckily, it’s not a bad break and it did not affect my nervous system.” He expects three to four months of rehabilitation and voiced his intention to come back even stronger.
