Response to the Fun Runner Review!

Hi Dana,

I concur with your review. I demo’d a Fun Runner 70 Sunday on the Shirttail run of the NF American and loved it! You can get a whip lash injury snapping into eddies with that boat!  My friend Bird says she jet surfed a FR-60 across the Hole 1 wave at the Reno WhiteWater Park so fast her hair was blown straight back even with her helmet on!

My stats are:
Long legs
5’11-1/2″
170#’s
Size 11 shoe

I had the seat centered, neutral trim, and the front bulkhead about as far forward as I could get it without altering the factory foam foot pad. Still my feet were just a little cramped by the end of the day (I had NRS river booties on). Otherwise the boat felt a little large on me (I added over an inch total of hip shims and was still a wee bit loose).  Though I’m sure there’d be times when the extra volume would be appreciated.

So I’m going to try and squeeze myself into a 60 and increase the playful factor even more.

I own several Jackson boats, a 2009 4Fun & a 2010 Hero. So I’m used to Jackson outfitting. The Fun Runner’s set up is a big improvement on an all ready good thing.

Thanks for your review. I, too, really liked this boat!

Cheers
Bruce Taylor

    amazing boat, front surfs old school but forgiving and spins with new style. If surfing big fast waves is your cup tea this boat performs.Highly recomended.
