We got the Spirit II in Tuf-weave Flexcore. Have had the canoe down a couple of local rivers. The canoe handles well and is easy to turn, has decent glide. Handled powerboat wake with no problem at all. For us it was between the Adirondack in Royalex or this boat. Because the local shop had a 15% sale, we upgraded to the Tuf-weave and longer boat.
It is light enough for me to carry by myself and for my wife and I to get on top of our SUV. The gel coat is easy to scratch on the bottom, but you just have to accept that with any gel coated boat. The tractor-seats are comfortable once you get used to them, but we will probably line them with foam for a little padding.
