From there you will hit the confluence with Glade, and have a screaming high-water paddle out on Manns.
The Boatertalk quote, along with Robert's comment, are referring to Glade Creek to the confluence of Manns, then down to the new on Manns Creek. This AWA page pertains to Manns creek above the confluence, AKA Real Manns Creek, which is much less commonly paddled.
Unguided first-timers should allow at least 10 hours for the run. The first descent took ten hours. Maybe super-hot boaters can do it faster, but if you don't know the rapids, prepare for a very long day down to the New River.
