Kayaks are expensive. This much is true. Blemished boats are a way to save some money.
If you know a smidge about manufacturing, you know there are firsts, seconds, thirds, etc. Blemished boats are seconds. This means that they did not pass their first article inspection. A Jackson Kayak blemished boat is due to having a visual discrepancy, never a structural discrepancy. Nothing about the boat will paddle any different than a brand new first article boat. However, it may have part of a decal missing, a nonstructural scratch, a gray seat installed, etc.
If you have more questions please reach out to the staff, we are here to help.
If you were heading to a new river, with no beta on what to expect and you were given the choice of only one boat to take; you would take the Jackson Kayak Antix 2.0. After three years paddling the original Antix, Jackson Kayak paddlers were all reminded of how much FUN whitewater is! With the masterful reshaping of a full planing hull, the Antix is substantially faster, it surfs like no other, stays on the surface, and squirts with less effort than ever. It runs rivers well, it runs creeks well and it’s the best for play in its class, bar none! It’s the one boat that rules them all for all day fun on the water.
The Antix brings play, river running and creeking together into a one-boat-fits-all package. Jackson Kayak staff took the best selling kayak in its class and added more speed, comfort, ease and play to give you the Antix 2.0.
“The new Antix takes what I loved with the first edition, but improved on all the bases I could have asked for. From easier squirting to higher speed, better surfing and more confidence downriver, it's the boat that’s gonna allow me to unlock the full potential of every run.” ~ Dane Jackson
