If there is a better paddle on the market, I have yet to find it. I paddle 300-400 miles a years everything from flat water to ocean to class 2+. This is now my go to paddle. At 24 oz its like moving your arms only. The variable angles that i can set suit every known type of condition. I happen to prefer bent shaft and find it to keep my wrists free from pain even after paddling for 4-6 hours. If anything I feel more energized and maintain a better form throughout the day. Very little drip back and it grabs beautifully. THIS IS THE BEST!
For a small and large cockpit kayak this is a great product. The hull design makes it almost as fast as a kayak at least 2 feet longer. Its beamy enough so that it rides waves well, yet low enough to the water so as not to get caught up in the wind. Turns well and with little effort. Secondary stability is amazing. If going out in chop you should have a half cockpit cover to keep some of the water out.
I would highly recommend this kayak to anyone who wants light, strong and quick as a primary or secondary boat.
Have had this yak for a month and put many miles on it. Overall it is one of the nicest light-weight boats (39 lbs.) I have ever paddled. It is very stable. My 16-foot kayak is only a little bit faster than this boat. Fit and finish are second to none.The larger cockpit makes for easy entry/exits as well as having items readily at hand. Setting foot pegs is so easy, I often adjust while paddling to give my back and seat a rest. Seat is contoured and has several adjustments for bottom and back. Be nice to have a cockpit specific cover as the seal 7.0 is a bit too big and therefore does not sit very well and hook is on wrong end. This is a superior product and easy to put on car. Great price for a great kayak!
Would I recommend this craft..YES. Just be aware of its one shortcoming.
