The Assassin is designed for the larger paddler of more than 75kg. While slightly slower than the Attack is offers greater stability making it a good choice for the Avon Descent.
It has a similar rocker and profile as the Attack and Assault but with wider gunnel lines to bring more secondary stability to the boat It is a great tripping boat, and the boat of choice for hank McGregor in big water.
