I love it! I'm more of a canoe guy than kayak but the high-low positions of the seat let me sit in whatever position is most comfortable. The ability to change from tandem to solo in just a few minutes is easy and lets you balance the boat easily.

My first trip was a 10-mile trip down the Withlacoochi River, the boat tracked well even in wind and was stable enough to stand to take photos. The only drawback when solo is that it's a little heavy for one person to portage by themselves. Thankfully one of the other kayakers assisted me in carrying it back and loading it on top of the roof rack."

The Ultimate FX 15 Tandem...

The Ultimate FX 15 Tandem is a vast improvement over the previous Ultimate 14 tandem. The seats are easily adjusted to high or low position. The initial and secondary stability is excellent. I only paddled this tandem so I can't comment on the solo configuration, but for tandem there was more room for the front passenger than in the older model. Also the seats now sit in a pan that can easily be moved.

My old Ultimate 14 tandem was hard to adjust the seats and they had to be blocked up with foam bricks. The FX is more user friendly from the new seats to the groove track accessory tracks and the improved yokes, there are a lot of places to store gear and add accessories.

This is an excellent kayak for someone who is looking for the roominess of a canoe but the stability of a kayak.
