    Why do the pics of the Mixmaster on the dealer sites look so different from the promo video? The video makes it look like a fun runner with less volume in the ends. The dealer pics make it look like a tuna. I was ready to order one based on the video. I bought 3 new antix this year so this is coming from a loyal fan of Jackson boats. Also own a fun runner,little hero and 4 fun. Maybe you can sell me one of the concept boats. Not interested in the tuna. Clearer pics of the final product from all angles are much needed. Loving the antix and my older boats.

    What’s going on with the Mixmaster? No new videos. No new pics. No reviews? Like to know more before spending $1250

    Jackson Kayak, A bit disappointed. When I ordered my new MixMaster you had advertised it coming with Happy feet. Love them in my other boats. Why start cutting back on quality now?

    1. July 22, 2018 at 4:32 pm

      Hey Max!
      Sorry if you wanted the Happy Feet instead! I expected that to be a no-brainer until I couldn’t get into the 7.0 with the Happy feet – despite a 30” inseam, even without shoes. There are just too many beans for many people that couldn’t get into the boat with these in them so we had to adapt. Consider checking with Customer Service, as I hear the foam is actually more $$ for us in the end, might be possible to swap? Check to make sure you can fit, though. If your toes are at the end of the foot bumps there’s not much past that. Clay

    We’ve had our demo MixMasters out for about 6 demos during the three weeks we’ve had them – and every single person raves about it! Stern work is really easy, and cartwheeling is in slower motion than playboats like the Rockstar. People get it when I say you “fly each end” through the water. This boat will be a hit!

    make a bigger one, or redesign the super fun like you did the 4 fun . . . please. There are some 230 pounders out there ya no.

    1. July 22, 2018 at 2:27 pm

      Hey Mark – Yeah, this is a SMALL boat at 230! I’ve seen Mike Arvison paddling the Ocoee at 250 in his and he’s a bit challenged but getting vertical everywhere! This boat is designed to be SMALL.. like stern under water small.. I actually puffed up my stern with an air bag in the 7.0 to help make it faster downriver and I’m 175 lbs. I do like the 7.5 but it’s a big fitting boat on me. So try the LG – get far forwards as you can – and recognize that it’s a plastic squirt boat more than an old-school freestyle boat. Enjoy! Clay

    I just picked up a mixmaster 7.5 and played on our local run. I love it. I consider myself an intermediate paddler, but this boat will make me better…no doubt.

    Thanks for an awesome desing! I wanted to get the smaller size for easier squirting although I’m quite big for the boat. Can I remove the front wall completely and paddle without it?

    I’ve had the 7.5 for three weeks. I’m 6 foot, 32 inseam, 190 lbs and the boat just sends. It is awesome, wish I would have gotten it sooner. Spent a lot of time deciding if I wanted this boat instead of a Homeslice [great boat, not as slicey, still very slicey], or if I would ever use it since I have and love a party braaap and rockstar. The answer is this boat is YOU BET! This boat is awesome! So many new moves, styles, and it still flat water loops if you need it to! It surfs awesome, and for the incredible edges and low volume—it is shockingly forgiving. The cartwheels, splats, and sterns drops are soul soothing, and so smooth. Better watch your diet with all the butter moves you’ll be making in this boat.

    I‘m 6,33 feet tall, 205lbs and have shoe size 12. What do you mean: I fit in the Mixmaster 7.5?
    Unfortunately I have no chance to put myself in times. Thanks for your answer.

    Would the 7 or 7.5 mixmaster be better for a paddler between 165 and 170 pounds?

    1. August 30, 2018 at 4:22 pm

      OK Fast Fred – it really depends! I’m 170 and like the 7.0 for park n play or pure squirt / play but the 7.5 is faster and easier to run down river so I tend to paddle it more places. The 7.0 isn’t much faster than my Rockstar down river so it’s more for play. The 7.5 I can carry a rope and my dry bag and be comfortable all day – even in colder water. 7.0 to get vert and stay vert, 7.5 to get vert on eddy lines or splats but generally paddle rapids in the normal way. Hope this helps! Clay

    hey guys

    great new boat, having loads of fun in it but seeing a small indent in the hull where the bolt for seat goes into the seat rail thing on the bottom of the boat. It’s as if the bolt is pulling the hull towards it, any tips?

    1. September 19, 2018 at 11:30 am

      Hey Billy – The bold you are referring to is through the seat track, but doesn’t connect to the hull so whatever indention you are pointing out shouldn’t be connected to the bolt itself. Take a photo and send to warranty@Jacksonkayak.com if you think its affecting your paddling. Hope you like the boat – Good Luck!!! Clay

    I’m 6’2” 195-205 lbs fluctuating. Would I generally be considered too big for the large Mixmaster? Really want to purchase one.

      I’m 6’ 200 lbs and love mine. I can wear skinny shoes in mine as well (Adidas JawPaw). I have paddled the Loki and Homeslice. I would pic the 7.5 mix master over them any day of the week. It’s also very easy to stern squirt and easy to balance. The boat also runs rivers great, has way more speed than a play boat.

        Thanks for your response Jarrod. What size/brand skirt are you using with your MixMaster 7.5? I just picked one up.

          IR sprayskirt XL deck. Works great with the Jackson boats

        Hey Jarrod, I’m also 6′ 200lbs and am deciding between the Mixmaster and Homeslice. What did you like better about the MM? I haven’t had a chance to demo one yet but really had a blast in the HS except for that I wish the bow had a little more rocker as it tends to dip when front surfing and at times downriver. Thanks!

    I just bought a Mixmaster 7.0. I’m 5’4″ 160lbs with a 29″ inseam what size of happy feet would work for me in this boat?

    how did you initiate the stern blast?

    1. January 12, 2019 at 9:06 pm

      Hey Erik –
      There are many ways to get vertical in a hole. If you can chop the stern into a stern stall in flatwater then you can do the same thing while side surfing and end up with the bow straight upstream over the drop. If the hole is too steep to side surf with any stability, you might consider coming into the backwash at a 45 degree angle and chop the bow up to straight before it sucks you in. Start with deeper or more low-angle spots as in the shallow steep ones you risk getting worked on the rock! Clay

    Hey folks, I’m about 175-185, 5’10”, and I was wondering what size mixmaster I should get? I want it to be playful and cartwheelable.

    1. July 4, 2019 at 4:43 am

      Hey Joe –

      The 7.5 for sure if you paddle many different rivers often and want to be confident on class 3+. The 7.0 is a FUN little boat but pretty committing in terms of fit and you lose some speed catching eddies or making moves around unexpected holes or rocks. I’m 5’9” 170 lbs and paddle both, the 7.5 would be my choice on most runs for some end-swapping fun but a more normal boat feel. The 7.0 on familiar Ocoee / deep water many eddies type stuff where I can take breaks or park n play and know the lines well and just want to get vert and stay vert all day. 7.0 at 170 lbs is a GREAT playboat! 7.5 is a downriver playboat. Your call – try both! Clay

    How is the 2019 Mixmaster different from the 2018 model?

      Hey Anthony –
      2019 is the same as the original. Enjoy! Clay

    Hi, it would be hard for me to try the different boat sizes before buying one… I am 6’0 175-180lbs, shoe size 11. I mainly paddle on well known 2 rivers ( class 3+-4). I want a boat to improve my flat water skills and river play… I am just uncertain about the size I should get. Help me please!
