LOVED this boat. My father and have rented kayaks for years, and in doing so, we found features we like and don't like. We finally decided what we liked, and researched boats here on paddling.net.
The Tryon was an excellent choice. My father's only complaint is the sidewall height. For me, it's a perfect boat. Perfect width, perfect shape, perfect keel. The seat could be a little better (2005 model), but can't they all? They glide through the water easily, and handle incredible, even in the class IV we took them out on.
From time to time, I think about buying an open kayak - I am happy LiquidLogic makes the Manta Ray for when I am ready.
