The Dagger Mamba line got a complete overhaul in 2012, and the original 8.5 was replaced with the 8.6. The increased size offers even more volume and improved volume distribution. The biggest of the Mamba series, the 8.6 is a great fit for larger paddlers, while still offering all the forgiving characteristics of the original series.
