Unfortunately Eddyline doesn't make the Falcon 16 anymore. The most distinctive feature is the relatively pronounced V hull. As a result the primary stability is relatively low, but the secondary stability is okay. There is no skeg or rudder, but this boat doesn't have any trouble paddling straight ahead at a good clip. This is probably one of the lightest fiberglass boats out there, mine weighed only 44 lbs. It rolls easily but I would have liked the thigh braces to be a bit beefier. Although the initial stability is relatively low it isn't bothered much at all if the water gets really bumpy. I've camped from it fine despite it having less storage space than most kayaks.
Pros: Light weight, fast, good in bumpy water, rolls easily, no skeg or rudder to contend with
Cons: Low initial stability, deep V hull hard to fit to some rack saddles, turns slightly slower than most seakayaks.
