Picked up my new Magic today in Blacklite w/E6 Trim and E6 components.

Now the ice just has to disappear.

Agree. I like the support system set up to support it.

Nice boat.

Do you lock your garage?

Ya baby! I love my magic.

Nice - more pics please! Is this the 'stealth' layup? What's your actual weight?

I think if it were the stealth layup it would have yellow logos and labels - guessing it's a blacklite layup with the same carbon gunnels, seats, and thwarts that are standard on the stealth but optional on other layups...

The OP states it is the blacklite layup.

I think that's likely - an unusual combo, and makes me even more interested in knowing the weight. Let's see what OP says.

Just weighed it this morning and it came in at 26.8 #'s

Waiting was NOT an option:

Initial thoughts as this is my first true solo boat, having only paddled tandems backwards and always having tripped in Mn 11's

1. Glide is ridiculous

2. Initial and secondary stability felt rock solid as I felt locked in with the footbrace.

3. This will be a fun boat to trip with as it has ample room for storage as I even had my CCS packs in to check fit. Guide fit flat and obviously Explorer easily fit in with both being behind the paddling station.

4. ZRE Powersurge will be the next procurement.

I'm so jealous! My magic is supposed to be coming sometime before the end of May.
