Whether you're a retired pro football player who is trying to learn a new sport or a whitewater fiend who spends days on the river, the Dagger Mamba 8. 6 Kayak fits your frame or your gear for a full week of frothy fun. This is the biggest boat in the Mamba line, and the tech stays exactly the same from the 7. 6 through the 8. 6. Versatile enough to sate the cravings of beginners and experts through class V, but you may not need another boat for years to come. The planing hull hits the two 's' words that matter to paddlers: stability and spin. First timers shouldn't be under water before touching the paddle, and master river runners should bring along a barf bag in case they get dizzy. Sharp edge transitions in the middle taper towards each end for diety-level forgiveness. A voluminous bow and peak deck keep the boat well above water and help you slip over aquatic obstacles with ease. The stern volume gives you room to stow a portage pack and room to make mistakes without severe consequences. The blend of rocker with the planing hull gives the Mamba moves over the open water. Scream in front of the slowpokes as you hug a tight line into the next eddy. Boofing in this boat is beautiful. On the off chance you biff a rock boof, the reinforced boot bulkhead footbrace system prohibits you from wrapping any part of your foot in front of the bulkhead so you can walk, not limp, away. The Ergo Contour Outfitting system helps you customize the fit for optimal comfort and maximum paddling efficiency.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
