The Dagger Axis series is designed to transition seamlessly from flatwater to moving water. It has unprecedented versatility. The Dagger Axis 10.5 is ideal for the eclectic paddler who appreciates relaxing day trips on the lake, but might also enjoy the challenge of a running river and it is unmatched in its class. On lakes, reservoirs, intercoastal waterways, and ponds it provides excellent tracking from a height-adjustable drop skeg that keeps it moving straight. Defined chines add maneuverability, and the Dagger Axis accepts a sprayskirt and can be fitted with thigh braces for more challenging environments. The new ConTour Ergo Outfitting offers amazing comfort and has multi-adjust options for better fit and function and now includes a topographical map imagery. Sporty and athletic, the Axis is ideal for the seasoned paddler who likes to do it all or the beginner paddler with a taste and aptitude for adventure.

Review: Everything with this order and kayak was great. Kayak did exactly as hoped. Speedy and zippy on my lake and very responsive and fun on the river that I frequent that has lots of Class I and 3-4 Class II. I'm pretty much of a novice kayaker and have had no problem.

Review: This is my 2nd review of the Dagger Axis 10.5. After 6 weeks of extensive use, my rating remains the same 5 stars, primarily due to Austin Canoe & Kayak Customer Service. The front (bow) retractable broke during the 1st month...it stopped retracting. ACK Customer Service helped with the warranty claim with Dagger Kayaks and did all the communicating with the factory to ensure a replacement part was sent. Additionally, they provided advice on installing the replacement part and stayed in constant communication until the part was delivered. The Dagger Axis remains an impressive kayak for my needs. Handles class I & II rapids easily and rarely takes on much water. The drop skeg is fabulous and provides excellent tracking. Keeping the skeg about halfway down seems to be the best position when negotiating rapids. I have hit bottom or rocks while going through rapids & because the skeg is "spring loaded: the skeg pops up and then back down without any damage. I recently completed 110 mile paddle trip and the adjustable seat was quite comfortable, even after 20 mile/day paddle. The Dagger Axis is a great value for a crossover kayak and handles flatwater & Class I & II rapids with ease. I chose the 10.5 because I frequently take side trips up small creeks; with the skeg up, the kayak is extremely maneuverable.

Review: Last fall I decided to get back into paddling and bought a Perception Sport Swifty 9.5 rec boat just to play in. This spring I was hooked again and wanted a better boat so I bought the Axis 10.5 after reading a bunch of reviews. Where I paddle offers a lot of varying conditions depending on the amount of rain we have been getting. I live in the upper Ohio Valley and usually paddle a couple miles up a creek off the river. With a little rain the current can become a challenge and if the river is up the current can be a challenge coming back the other way. The day before the Axis was delivered we got about 2.5 inches of rain and I would have never thought about going up stream in my other boat, but I really wanted to give the Axis a try. When I first pulled out from the landing I was all over the place. I couldn’t believe how maneuverable the Axis was compared to the shorter Swifty. I dropped the skeg and headed up steam. The Axis tracks straight as arrow with the skeg full down, but with the skeg in that position it is a little sluggish in turns. After playing with the skeg I found the middle position to be the proper balance between turning and tracking for my paddling. So far all of my rides have only been around an hour, but the seat is very comfortable and the adjustability is great. The footbrace system is great. It nice to be able to adjust the foot pedals on the fly. The overall fit and finish of the Axis makes it seem like a more expensive boat. I can’t wait to try it out some moving water. I was a bit worried about ordering a kayak online, but ACK and Estes Express made it a painless experience.
