Have one very full season on my Dumoine in royalite. Bought it to use tandem on cl 1-3 rivers, which it has handled quite well, although a bit wet in the upper 2 and 3, which is to be expected. Good combo. of straight line and turning ability. Now my son has been soloing our Dagger 15' reflection, and I have found the Swift to be a decent solo canoe for this 6'2", 210 lb. paddler. Handles beautifully as this video will show.
