This boat has a lot of characteristics of the Merlin. It is very quick to turn from the tail, but it has reduced nose rocker which increases it's down-the-line speed. It has the dependable paddle out ability of the Neutron, but does not feel as big in the cockpit. This boat has taken the best characteristics of the Reflex, Neutron, and Merlin and rolled them into one sweet and comfortable ride. Reduced width and rocker, combined with it's 'V' tail, make this boat fast and agile. Slightly smaller than the Neutron. Roomier and more stable than the Reflex. With a comfy seating position and spacious leg room, this boat is not lacking in the radical performance department. If you are too big for the Reflex and too small for Neutron, then the Boost will sit you well.
"Compared to the Merlin and Neutron, the entry rocker is more gradual - I found it seemed to glide very smoothly whilst surfing, but it still seemed to skip up over the waves easily on paddle-out." "I like a boat to sit comfortably and easily around me. The knee braces and cockpit are an inch or two lower than the Merlin and Neutron, which I don't find it easy to lock myself in. I find this a better, more natural position to fit the boat. It also means I can roll it very easily."
