Each year the team has honed the Stinger to enhance the turning, surfacing, and speed. Since the initial design, Liquid Logic have added 8″ to the stern so it rides forward and aggressive, skipping through holes where other boats bog down. The shorter bow keeps it from pitoning in steeper drops, and the high-crowned deck helps the boat surface rapidly. At this time, the Stinger holds course records in extreme races across the country; at home on the Green River. The Stinger stands out among other boats for its dramatic ability to come out of rapids at top speed. The extra length of the stern allows the boat to plane-out quickly and hit its insanely fast top-end speed while it plows over almost any obstacle with just the right amount of bow rocker.
It is able to dominate races plus is incredibly fun to paddle on all types of water simply because it is fast. The sensation you get sitting when in the cockpit while motoring down a river, wiggling and bouncing off eddy lines, coming up on a slot to straighten your charc and seeing the bow fly past the rock you barely missed, maintaining a glide for longer than you thought possible. Whether your goal is to win races or to spice up your local run, to do attainments, or just to rip down creeks and rivers like there is no tomorrow, the Stinger’s speed is as addicting as it is fun.
Adjustable seat moves back and forth as well as the foot braces and thigh braces to get the perfect fit for you. The boat also comes with hip pads with shims to give you a comfortable fit at the hips.
