                Jackson said he and longtime design partner David Knight were very worried about
                losing some river running ability in this new freestyle machine. After testing on the
                Colorado River at 12,000 cfs, their worries were over and the verdict is in: improved
                river running due to more volume in the boat and easier to keep the ends out of the
                water. “The new All-Star series caters to the paddler who wants World
                Championship performance in their playboat, even if they are learning the most
                basic of moves like the front surf,” Jackson said.


                With the All-Star 2010 series, Jackson Kayak also expands on its reputation for the
                broadest range of boat sizes, from kid-sized Shooting Stars to the new Mon-Star for
size XXL boaters. The new Star series also marks the debut of a new formulation of
cross-link plastic that cuts out peroxides making it better for the environment while at
the same time creating a more rigid and durable hull.


Standard features include Boat Armor outfitting with Sweet Cheeks all-day comfort
adjustable seating. Available in rainbow colors, MSRP $1199. Founded in 2004,
family owned and operated Jackson Kayak is the leading manufacturer of
