I am an older, small statured woman and this kayak is very light and easy to load on my car top carrier. It is a joy to paddle, tracks pretty straight and is very maneuverable. I have been using this kayak on lakes and slow moving rivers. It is not "tippy" and the cockpit provides alot of room for my dry bags. I love this kayak for its all around usefulness.
All in all this is a great kayak for the price. I occasionally use a friends' NRS but my SE-330 does all I ask of it! Recommend!
