I have owned a Ultima for 3yrs. and enjoy paddling it. The initial stability is moderate and secondary is good. It is deceptively fast. Turns very well with edging. Rudder is a little overdone with the amount of moving parts. But I must say that the rudder goes deep enough that it stays in the water on big swells. Quality is as good or better than anyones and I have owned many kayaks. Hatches are huge. Right up there with QCC's. I have bought and sold many kayaks but the Ultima and my QCC's will always be a part of my fleet.
