Overall a great boat and should be good for beginner to advanced. The only difference in the Expedition and the large Solo is the Stern hatch and if you are a smaller paddler I would demo the medium and the small just to see if they feel different for you. I give nine out of ten!
The main problems I encountered at 178 cm and 73-75 kgs was size and as a novice, a lack of ability. I was too small to boss it through rapids, and lacked the technique to finesse it through. Defensive techniques resulted, rail-roading was common. Further, in muscle terms, I was too weak to carry its amazing weight - 23 kgs without gear - for long! So, with my inabilities now openly stated, the following pros and cons summarize my thoughts after 18 months of paddling it in class 2 and class 3 water.
