I just rented an Otter Twin this weekend and I was impressed. Paddled 4 miles (calm inland lake) with a 40 pound kid in the front. Storage space was good, very stable, tracked well, seemed pretty fast also. No problem keeping up with the single seat Loons or the 2-man Pelican Apex. First time paddlers kept it straight and fast also, I'm unsure what the people in these other reviews were doing. Perhaps balance issues? Ive got a lot of sit on top and canoe experience. Paddled fine solo also. I liked it so much, I'm going to buy one. Gave it 8 out of 10 for 3 reasons:
- Rear foot pegs not usable, but not needed because of the front seat
- You should be able to move the rear seat all the way up to the middle, but it ran into something. Still handled fine
- $700 price tag. Steep for a plastic shell, I'll find me a used one!
