Not sure why this kayak is designated as being discontinued but either way, I thought I'd post a review after spending 7 days on the east coast with this kayak.

Being 5'6" and ~150lbs, I was on the upper end in terms of specs and the fit was just right. Tight enough that I felt the kayak was an extension of my body but roomy enough that I didn't feel any discomfort.

The kayak was an absolute pleasure to paddle! The primary stability was surprisingly good. On par with my personal Delta 15S, which I found quite stable. The secondary stability was even better, which provided great confidence in leaning turns. Directional stability was also very good. Rarely used the skeg except for strong crosswind/currents.

Storage space was very good, although the hatch openings are quite small compared to some other kayaks. A front storage compartment would've been nice too.

To sum it up, I think I may have found my next kayak!

Very impressed with this paddle. Very stiff, light and great attention to detail - Impeccable workmanship.

After paddling a Delta 12S for several years, I decided to upgrade to a 15S for the added cargo capacity and speed and what a delight it's been. Like it's smaller cousin, the 15S has great primary and secondary stability, good handling and speed, large storage areas and a comfortable cockpit. And best of all, it's lightweight design makes it super easy to load and unload by yourself. After all, what's the use of a great kayak if you dread having to handle it outside of the water. The only negative I found is the susceptibility of the hull to oil can. Mind you, this was my fault since I left my kayak strapped tightly to my roof rack on a hot day but it's something to be wary about. I also found the deck to be quite slippery for re-entries. More incentive to work on my roll.
