Many people are immediately put off from buying a Recon as a result of their not insubstantial weight (22kg). Admittedly my disability does limit me from being able to carry my own boat, but weight has still been an important consideration, given that people are now significantly less inclined to carry it for me.
Having paddled the Recon 70 for a full year, I have developed three clear reasons to explain why it’s worth the weight:
It's A Whitewater Boss
Tanks Are Heavy For A Reason
Reconing In Chile
Reconing In Italy
