Mine was carbon/kevlar nice light 39 lbs took it out one day when it was a little rough on our local lake and I was having fun as I paddled into the waves 1-3 footers coming off the starboard bow but when I turned around to go back with the waves off my port quarter I could not get that thing to go downwind the bow just wanted to go into the wind I was pretty well wore out by the time I got back I just kinda let the wind push me sideways for awhile while I caught my breath.It needs a skeg or rudder for those conditions and since I don't like either(I prefer a hull that can be managed without those devices) I sold it.
I use these pretty much all the time for kayaking,my boats are usually pretty low volume Greenland style,so these work great,where a standard wet shoe or boot won't work.Another nice thing about them is you can turn them inside out after rinsing for drying and they dry faster than the standard wet shoe or boot.
I enjoy making it go straight in all kinds of wind and wave and keeping it on course without skeg or rudder using only paddle strokes and braces.
I would prefer a different hatch maybe a screw in. Original hatches had a small piece of rope drilled threw cover, it didn't seat properly till I removed them, Now I pry open the hatches with a piece of metal. Initial stability is a little more tender than the Tahe. 6ft 200lbs. I'm going to try and fix the seat issues and either keep it or sell it.
I am 6ft 200 lbs, and I fit in nice and snug, I usually paddle only for 2 or 3 hours at a time, this is probably one of the best kayaks I have ever paddled. An extension of my body.
