I've been paddling an Eddyline Sandpiper for 5 years now and couldn't be more pleased with the product. Easy to paddle, tracks well, cuts through the water with speed and looks great. Highly durable and maintains its integrity over time. Lightweight (39 pounds) so easy to get on the water and back to car top. Excellent value for the dollar. Best kayak on the water in my opinion and I've tried several. I would highly recommend Eddyline - you can't go wrong - and they stand behind their product with excellent after purchase support.
