Paddling Life recently posted an article announcing that Necky is pulling out of Whitewater kayaks to focus on rec and touring kayaks.
"We still have boats in stock, and still have Spike," Johnson Outdoors
Paddlesports General Manager, Nando Zucchi says, adding that the company is still selling
a lot of its most popular whitewater kayak, the Blunt. "But the numbers and
profitability of that segment just don't work. We can only be so many things to
so many people, and we're turning our resources more toward the touring and rec
kayak markets. Compared to the sales volume you get in those markets, other
than a personal desire to sell whitewater kayaks there's no real reason to."
