PROS: light. Scupper holes work better than on any of my other kayaks. Tracks remarkably straight for a 9 footer. At 26 inches wide it is easy to paddle without grazing the fingers. (Most of it's competitors are 30" or wider) Very good initial stability. Hatch in cockpit for keys etc. Comfortable for people up to 6 feet. Great company support!!! I called to order side handles for it and the guy talked to me for about 20 minutes, answered questions and gave me a good deal on the stuff I needed.
CONS: Very slow. The bow tends to ride a little low with someone as tall as myself. Glides through the water as gracefully as a snow plow. Fat people will not fit in this cockpit, it's narrow (but that’s not the boats fault!) Fair secondary stability. Once it reaches a certain point, it's going over without a slap brace.
Buy it for the right reasons and this is a very good boat for the $$.
