Fun, Responsive, Versatile   rating
From the first time I sat in the display model on the floor at Canoecopia, the Pyranha Fusion fit like a custom tailored suit. It wore like one when I test-paddled it on the pond behind Rutabaga. My appreciation has deepened in the two seasons since I brought mine home. Its weight and dimensions make the Fusion manageable to carry to water. Once launched, it’s responsive to all the strokes in my vocabulary: A draw stroke, for example, produces lateral movement with ease. A bow rudder stroke yields swift and sure maneuvering. The simple skeg system is easy to learn and use. I’ve also found the Fusion to be a good forgiving boat for practicing leans and turns. My favorite thing about the Fusion is its versatility. I use it most on southern Wisconsin rivers like the Mecan and Pecatonica, but also the Yahara chain of lakes and the occasional northern pond. It sacrifices some efficiency and speed to touring kayaks, but the Fusion likes to go: It carries a surprising amount of momentum when you stop paddling and let it glide in neutral. I prefer my waters sedate, so I can’t testify its performance in whitewater. I often go without a spray skirt, but have found it an easy boat to re-enter after a wet exit. And then there’s the color menu. There are conservative alternatives, butI like the citrusy yellow and jaffa blend for the way it reflect how happy I am to be alive whenever I’m out paddling it.
