Pahoa vs Stingray-Flat Water

I've never tried a Pahoa, but I have a Stingray. I looked in archives but couldn't find an answer to this specific question. If you have to race in flat water, which do you grab? Pahoa or Stingray and Why? Also, I know the Kaimana, Hurricane, and Pegasus are all good boats, but please help me with this question.

A little Late...Yes, but the Pahoa is a little faster than a Stingray on the flat...But if you can , try a Tahitain I have aTahitian rudderless V1 and a stingray....The latter feels like im paddlein' in mud compaired to the V1..
A paddling master down here said the reasons are Less Rocker and a longer water line......Kia Ora Bro
The Pahoa I used was better than the stingray on the flat...only thing it made a funny creaking sound..

Hi all,

Well I have only been on a Pahoa once, it was ok but I only had it in the flats. I have since got a hold of a Singray, and I am luven it.

It is excellent in the ocean, on runners and I am working at it in the flats, it seems to like a longer stroke, with a kick at the back.

I wonder what kind of stroke Karel Jr uses on the Fusion and used on the Stingray, He seems to do well, HAHAHAHAHAHA

True... the stingray is much faster than the Tahitian in the surf and with the following sea..I too love it off Fuisions in New Zealand but I'ld love a ride (any kiwis know where to get a demo)
