  • Diablo vs S/D Puma

    Looking for thoughts and opinions on the Maravia Diablo and the Super Duper Puma.
    Pros/cons. Experiences. Opinions. I'll take it all.

    This would be a fishing only rig.

    You may want to check out the SOTAR STRIKE too-

      If I had a choice between the rafts mentioned and the one goo brought up, I'd choose the sotar.

      Back when I was rowing commercial whitewater trips, if there was a sotar on the beach, I'd do what I could to get in that boat, every time.

ID:	2491600Boat now almost 20 yrs old and still love it. Two people on 10-13 day float fishing trips. (as shown in pic 2). Sets up in about 20-25 minutes. Seats rower plus 2 fishers. Super manuverability. Rows with full load wonderfully even thru lakes. Tough as nails. Cant crow enough about this boat.

          Is the floor in the Strike I beam?

          All the Sotars I've seen are, that's why I excluded it, just a Personal preference.

            They are welded I beam- Tracks better than drop stitch. That is why SOTAR dropped the drop stitch years ago. Have a personal one I was going to ship to Russia, but trip cancled. If you want to take a look. Great price. Never been in the water. Already built a frame and have oars. My russia trips have taken a hit this season- as you can imagine.

              I have to agree with goo on the I beam floors. Slab floors are tanks in comparison.
              Personal preference of course will rule your decision. I'd vote for the maravia over the puma.
