I've been canoeing for years but just got started with kayaking. I got a great deal from Kidder Kayaking in Brainerd, MN on a demo kevlar Solstice GT. Since I'm just getting started, I don't have all the "expert" experiences to draw from, but I can tell you this boat is a joy to paddle. It's stable, quick, responsive, and exactly what I was hoping it would be. It's smoke over smoke and is a beautiful boat. The only reason I'm giving it a 9 instead of a 10 is that I just feel I need more time in it to rate it at "perfection", though I'm pretty close to doing that now. At the end of the summer I'll post additional comments.
