Awesome light weight kayak. Great for older people. Easy to get in and out of. But the hatch isn't 100% waterproof and the footrests suck. They are very easily snapped backwards. The only way to fix them is to take completely off and reattach. Overall worth the money!
The typhoon is an awesome rec kayak. I'm 240 lbs and I have no problem getting in or out. It has a high back rest for comfort. I even take the kids for rides. The only reason for giving it a 9 is the waterproof hatch is not waterproof.
