This is our first kayak, and we think it's a great boat. For a 'hybrid' rec/touring boat, it's performed well for us in our day trips in various conditions.
Only gave it a 9 because I'd prefer if the boat had a sealed bow bulkhead instead of a foam insert. Otherwise, my wife and I love it, and have taken the boat out onto lakes, rivers, and coastal areas with great success.
I'd recommend getting this boat with the optional rudder. It has helped immensely. Worth the extra money.
