I bought the straitEdge 2nd-hand from air kayaks (Ebay). About the kayak - It's heavy , ~20 kg. easy to setup (10 minutes with hand pump). look quiet durable - comparing to other under 500$
inflatable I check. on the water its very stable - good for fishing. I use it in the surf - quiet enjoyable although it turns over in the big
waves (3' and up) - probably my skill.
On calm water (sea) I paddle it t for 3-4 miles long paddling - if you paddle it with ease its O.K . but not track well like hard shell ...a
skeg might help. Sitting is comfortable, and plenty of space for equipment, but nothing
to secure it to the kayak.
Overall good kayak for the money, and of course comfort of storage - an important factor for me. Otherwise I think a hard shell SOT kayak
would be better on water. I would recommend this kayak for anyone who wants a SOT for fishing,
surfing small waves, a short-mid distance sea trip.
