Great fun boat, unfortunately outclassed by modern boats though as has little room in the cockpit, I am 5ft 8 and 75kg with size 9's, Any bigger is a nono, my feet are that tight I get cramp at times. If you are a smaller paddler it is a great boat, turns instantly rolls easy you can really throw it and edge it to the max. Grade 2 is max unless you are a superstar as it will simply throw you out in grade 3. I have other boats but paddle this 1 occasionally for the fun.

Bought this WW kayak used and have used it in lakes and slow black water rivers. Turns on a dime and the low profile allows me to get under downed trees. Also use of a spray skirt is a must as the low profile in the stern will allow water to sneak in otherwise. There's no keel and I have to use the paddle more to track straight.
For day trips and getting in and out of tight spots and in the shallows it's great and a lot of fun. And it's light and easy to transport. For camping purposes I'd recommend a touring kayak with a keel and some storage.
