We ran across these on sale at a local sporting goods store... We bought 3 of the blast and already had one Perception Swifty. I must say the Blast tracked better and felt faster in the water. This is my first kayak so I don't have much to compare it to but with the tie downs front and rear, and the foot supports this was a perfect choice for me.
= Tracks well, for as short as it is
= Very stable for beginners
= Inexpensive in price
= The back rest seems to move on its own; simple fix
= On one of the three Blasts we purchased the screw holding in the front flotation did not secure the foam correctly and it fell out the first trip. It was an easy fix but should have to be fixed on the first trip.
