I bought the Dagger as my first sit in small sea kayak and it was everything I thought it would be.

Construction was fine, the deck hatches were really tight and as such never leaked. The seating area was pretty tight but the back band never really gave me any support. I am around 100kg and around 6 foot.

The boat has a fair bit of rocker and so it can turn on a six pence which is great for exploring all the nooks and crannies in the local lochs. However, if you want to chew up some miles then you will need to use the skeg I suspect. And like all skegs, it works just fine although it would slip out when stored.

My average cruising speed was about 3.5mph on a 12 mile paddle, so it is not too bad. Stability was great and gave me confidence in spades. I took many a photograph when out on the water in this boat.

I think it would be a good choice for someone looking to get into loch/lake and estuary/sea paddling. And possibly suitable for someone looking to play in the waves, something I never did try.
