I have chosen Bay+ model because of declared by producer easy and quick rigging and comfort of the back rest (I'm 61 so that is very welcomed feature :) ). I have tested it very next day. The day conditions were not very promising: windy, 16 kts head wind and risen river water level forced me to paddle against 1,5 m/s current + 16 kts head wind. I was psychologically prepared just for a 15 min. or so test paddle just to check stability and maneuverability but for the very first hit by paddle of the water I was highly surprised by how easy and smoothly it went against the current and how light is handling and I went on paddling further and further and stopped after 4 km of distance just because my wife called me to go back home (the test day was Christmas Eve day ...). So I went back to the launching place and rigged kayak back into the box and was about to get it into the car (Nissan Micra) when I was called by my friend asking what I'm doing with that box near the river? "It's the kayak"" I replied ... what???
I have made 60 km since then including the 14 km trip up stream, crossing and carrying the kayak across electric power plant dam with follow-on paddling across the lake and crossing the dam on my way back and all that without anyone support and even without a need to use a car :) The rigging procedure is easy and simple, stability requires a bit skill to have with more stable kayaks. So, it is light, stable, considerably fast (5 km/h average speed if you don't rush anywhere) and ... mobile, extremely mobile boat. Thank you Oru Kayak Team
