The Twister 14' is a versatile solo canoe. This model was originally created according to the ideas of Theo Lasch, who took the original 16' Chestnut Prospector as the basis for a solo boat. In the freestyle scene Lasch's Twister is highly appreciated. For me it was modified a little bit, precisely the focus was more on the use as a touring boat. Slightly less rocker, a slightly flatter bottom, and already it lies more stable in the water and has a more reliable straight line. The touring version can do that.
But thanks to the different wood characteristics of ash compared to spruce, a rounder bottom and more rocker can be created when using ash ribs. This small change increases the turning ability and makes the Twister back to what the designer originally thought - an agile freestyle canoe.
No matter which version - thanks to its sufficient internal volume, the Twister 14' also offers the possibility to carry a lot of luggage. Smaller solo tours are thus easily possible. Especially in winding, small flowing waters this Canadian should be a lot of fun. The Twister appears well controllable and reliable in every phase.
