Bought the Edge for my wife. Worst mistake ever. She was thrilled that I wanted to share the outdoors with her. We went on a camping trip to a nearby lake to test it out on calm waters. Thank god for that. We went out early morning with no wind and flat calm. My wife kept falling behind. She said she had trouble keeping it going in the direction she wanted. I explained what she needed to do, but it didnt help. We got back and met up with friends. The next morning we went out again under the same conditions. I took out the Emotion. I tried everything to make it track straight. I couldnt keep up with my wife in the Wilderness Plamico 120. She blew me away. After an hour I was so frustrated we turned around and came back. The wind picked up slightly and tripled my misery. Two and a half hours later I got back to camp. I have kayaked/canoed for the last 25 years and this was the worst I have ever been in. It was roomy and comfortable. I also understand that it is considerably shorter than the Wilderness and I was lower in the water and increased drag. With that taken into account tracking and handeling was awful. The wilderness would cover in one stroke what it would take the Emotion three or four, depending on how straight I could get it to track. It went back to the store the next day.
