coming out of a Perception dancer white water kayak, and wanted to boat with a rec/touring boat, I use this kayak for fishing on lakes and streams, the seat is completely adjustable and very comfortable, I'm used to thigh braces on white water boats so the thigh braces on the Tsunami make the transformation to touring yaks very smooth
Now onto the handling: very smooth tracks very well, and has more than enough speed for a 12.5' yak, within 5 min I was completely at home in this boat, the paddle holder on the side works very well as a rod holder and the deck rigging is more than ample. I rigged the boat with an anchor trolly system and flush mount rod holder and the yak suits my needs perfectly. The foot peg adjustment is very nice and easy to adjust during use. Adjusting from power stroke to casual paddling with ease, the yak is very stable and slices though the water with ease aprox 4mi/hr without fatigue...
All in all, I am very satisfied with this kayak 20% off for $805 including tax at Eastern Mountain Sports in June of 2008. If you're thinking about buying a rec touring boat I highly recommend this yak
