Great canoe: fast, responsive, fairly light. With eddyturns, we leaned her to the gunnels within the first 5 minutes! Very forgiving beginner canoe, too.
Downside (if that is one): looks like a Prospector 16, behaves like one and cost, due to the innovative material, 30% more than a RX Pro 16. OK, the weight...but our test canoe was 12% over weight on my scale - standard equipped! Puts her in close range to a RX Pro 16 weight-wise as well....
Twintex seems to have way more glide than Royalex. And it doesn't get scratched or dented as easy. If you got the $$$, go for it. Otherwise, you might as well buy a cheaper material hull.
