I have mixed feelings about this kayak. What I love is the stability and seating comfort. It's the first ( of maybe or 5-6 to date) kayaks that I feel pretty comfortable standing . It's also well designed/ proportioned for allowing me to get to my gear (behind the seat) while on the water and without antics that can flip a boat.. What I don't like is that the boat is actually more like 10'4" at the waterline. The rest is weighty overhang. Due to it's length, it waddles when paddled. A rudder may help but adds cost, complexity and weight. The boat is fairly heavy. The wheel is useless in anything beyond hard surfaces and just digs in. Also the front handhold is inadaquate and misplaced. When you lift the bow to move the boat, the boat wants to roll on it's side and twists your hold. I added two more handles about a foot back to help with this. The seat is excelent but heavy. It also protrudes into the cup holders making them useless. Storage pockets on the seat are nice though. All that said, it is the most comfortable yak I've had to date to flyfish from.
