"BEST ON THE MARKET"

After drooling over a Bote board for 3+ years I finally pulled the trigger on a 12' Rackham. The fit and finish is second to none, and it is a fishing machine. It is incredibly stable, allowing much better visibility for sight fishing since I'm no longer worried about falling over like I was in my 14' kayak. Now I'm wishing I hadn't waiting 3 years to buy one!

"EXCELLENT PADDLE BOARD"

Excellent paddle-board. I’m 6 foot, 220 pounds. And, accommodates my size quite nicely. I take the board out on the Florida Intracoastal Waterway where it can be a little choppy and windy. And the board handles great.It has met all my expectations. I’m quite happy and would recommend the board to anybody.

Bugslinger experience !

At age 68, convenience, comfort and dependability are priority. The Rackham Bugslinger has provided all three. I have already been on flat water twice and River water, the experience was great. Handling of course is important and having kayaked several years, a 14’ foot board was new. I have a 12’ foot board and I have to say the Bugslinger performed as well or better, tracking and turning. I recommend the side fins, and a short center fin for River paddling, performance is great. At 68, of course the weight was an issue but the carry strap makes it possible for me to load unload and carry my board down/up boat ramps without assistance. Needless to say I am satisfied at this point with my purchase. You have a good man in Chris at the Destin Fl store. See you on the water!

The Cadillac of paddle boards

Bote is one of the best companies that has truly been a pleasure to buy from. Their boards are by far the best I have seen, others simply do not compare. Not only are the boards great but the customer service has been nothing but great. I recommend these boards to anyone that is looking for a paddle board!

Love the 14” Rackham

Super stable and features lots of options for holding my gear. Paddles efficiently with displament bow. If you have to turn in tight areas best to shift weight to back of board. And because it’s a big board make sure your auto can accommodate it. Best board I have owned!
