This is a great kayak. But its lack of speed is sometimes a problem. As others have said here, it seems really slow. It gets going up to a fair speed, but then it hits a wall where I feel like I'm just pushing water in front of me rather than paddling. I thought it was me until I read the reviews here. I've been paddling it for several seasons now, and its helped me improve my technique. I just wish it would be faster when I paddle in groups.
Pros: extremely comfortable, stable in rough water, and great for easy touring and camping. I think the seating and thigh braces are excellent.
Cons: It's very hard to keep up to speed with others. That's the only drawback. Otherwise, I give it an excellent score.
