the performance version comes standard with side grabloops, bow/stern foam pillars, and a performance seat.
here is a better view of the performance seat where you can see the screw inserts that accept the optional thigh wings. also notice the recessed area in front of the seat for a waterbottle or throw rope
here you will notice that the performance seat is like a low-back testarossa seat. This gives you the option to pad out the back and make a super comfortable race seat, or add your favorite brand of backband for a more standard feel.
note: two major differences between testarossa seat and the performance seat are (1)testarossa seat is raised 2" off the hull and the performance seat is only about 3/4" off the hull. (2) the testarossa seat has a high, solid back piece for increased contact and control from the paddler,while the performance seat has a more comfortable lower back that allows for a more traditional feel.
final note: the drainplug is an added option that costs $11 some people want it, some don't
DragoRossi Fish $799 at 100waves.com
there are many accessories that can be bought, in addition to the Performa seat system
DragoRossi makes a simple ratchet backband that is easy to install.
many other brands can be installed in minutes too.
here is the DragoRossi foot sled. it relieves pressure on your toes and allows you to have an adjustable foot system that you can crank up when you need it, and loosen it up for the mellow sections.
of course some people just prefer a foam bulkhead. That works well to.
which ever system you prefer, the first step will be to remove the set screw from the bow of the boat,the one that holds the foam pillar in place
then you can remove the bow pillar and install your footblock, heel sled, airbag, foam block, whatever you are going to use
remember to put the foam pillar back,and insert the screw again; then you'll be all set!
buy and install the thigh wings for increased control and performance. Installation is very simple
