Have any of you paddled this boat yet?  If so, what did you think of it?

I have been interested in this boat as well. I want to go do the Grand Canyon in the next few years and I would like a planning hull beast of a river runner for that type of run.

Sweet boat. I paddled a prototype Axiom 9.0, which is the production 9.0. I'm 5'8" and 165 lbs. I would recommend this boat to anyone. It is an excellent river runner that is comfortable, easy to roll, turns exceptionally well, is very fast, surfs great and you could even creek in it if you wanted. The bow stayed on top through the holes on the sky at 5k. The edges are there if you need them, however they are soft enough not to notice or catch funky currents. Far superior boat, in all aspects, then the RPM. This coming from someone who ownes more than one RPM and thinks it is a great boat. If you want to know more ask and I will respond next time I have internet.
If you're gonna put gear in the boat or run harder whitewater with it, go with a bigger size. I didn't think the 9.0 felt to big and I'm undersized for the boat. Feel free to call.
And yeah, it leaks, it's a Dagger. Buy a sponge, maybe dagger should include that instead of the chaep water bottle!

I wanted to look into that boat, but unfortunately I tested a Pyranha Z One (their update of the Inazone), fell in love and bought it. Great boat.
