Bottom line - I love it! The only knock is it's a little slow. But when going down a river, that's not a problem I don't understand why Jackson quit making it.
The Regal paddles fairly straight for a 11' kayak and is stable. It's wide at 30" and not very fast. It has built-in handles which I use all of the time. The Regal appears to be well made. It can handle riffles and some white water with no problems. I use it mainly on creeks and the Salt River near my home.
Overall I'm pleased with this kayak and feel like I made the right decision to spend a little more.
Only downside is it is a little slow in the water and that's why I gave it an 8. But, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
