I am a 6'1, 200 lb. experienced whitewater canoeist and wilderness tripper. I found it difficult to find a solo canoe here in the South that is lightweight, not kevlar, and not a whitewater C-1 which I have. I also got tired of taking my kevlar Swift Osprey onto slow rivers where shallow shoals abound and dragging is a must. The 119 is good for all such rivers down with up to class 2's maybe some IIIs, and being plastic is okay for dragging. I use a canoe fold back seat for more comfort, and a 250cm lenght kayak paddle. Due to 119's short length and seat location a kayak paddle works best. Seat is low, you cannot put your kness under it, but stability is fine. Remember this is not going down class IV's.
