I received the new updated model in August 2020 and have had it on several trips, mostly on rivers. It is so incredibly fun to paddle! I had a 10' SOT kayak previous, and while nice to paddle, wasn't very fast, had minimal storage, and I would hit my knees paddling. The Scupper has a ton of storage, and is fast! Stability is also excellent - although I have yet to fully put it to the test and purposefully lean until I tip over. It has great secondary stability. Even travelling parallel to white caps it stayed upright. If I had one nitpick it would be the scupper drains. They work fine, but so far seem very hard to push out to engage, albeit easier to pop back up. Perhaps they just need some breaking in to loosen up. I've added some Ram mounts for phone and water bottle, and will also use it to fish out of. Overall just a fantastic design. Tracks straight but retains the ability to be maneuverable, at least as well as a 14' kayak can be. It's the first kayak I've paddled that I get truly excited about getting on the water with.
