Mad River Canoe sold as "Outdoorsman" - Dick

Discussion in 'Hot Deals' started by JLeephoto, Apr 27, 2008.

  1. I bought a Dick's "Outdoorsman" canoe on closeout after calling the factory based on the Hull #. Turns out they are Mad River Horizon 15s Royalex Canoes that sell for twice through Mad River distributers. Not sure how many companies have made canoes for Dicks but suggest anyone interested in a lighter 50# canoe that's an upgrade over the heavier Old Town and Field and Stream models sold at Dicks, check the hull #. I think I got a real deal on this one.
  2. Did you buy it at a store (where) or the internet?

  3. I got my at the Charleston, WV Dicks Sporting Goods. It was the last one they had in stock as they said they'd switched to the Field & Stream model. Mine was a 2006 model, but my guess is that they're still available at some big box stores.
