Default New NFO Outlaw X5 review

While it did take a little over a month since I ordered them, ( they are all USA made- locally in Ogden Ut.) and knowing what size operation Dave and Larry/Northfork Outdoors-have we got them a little while ago. So if you have to wait a while for a NFO/Scadden boat, quit whining and *****in' like that whiner Mcghee. It's damn well worth it. Or if you're going to whine, buy a Chinese made Outcast or ODC.
BTW, we keep getting Scadden boats because they hold up. Before this we had the Cardiac Canyons since spring of '01. Before that the 8' Scadden Expeditions and Joni had a Bucks Bag toon.
This last weekend we went up for 4 days to a southeastern Idaho stillwater to really give them a go.
Joni in the yeller one, me and the rojo one. I have a Garmin GPS. It's pretty accurate too. I usually take it on the boat with me. Just for the fun of it, I rowed across the lake. Now it's not as fast as a canoe or 'yak, but for a kickboat- it flies. I did top out briefly at 4 mph. I couldn't hold it there for very long. 3- 3.4 mph was average.
10' of nothing but stability. With the 'toon as a one piece unit, 35 seconds per side to inflate it with a LVM pump (topping off with a hand pump when all is strapped on) simple 5 pc. frame held on by 10 cam straps- 4 of which hold down the rear deck.
