Great OC-1, probably one of the best on the market today. I was a little heavy for it at 220 lbs, but it still performed very well. Great hole boat, with the exception of the new hybrid models like the Aftershock, the Phantom is the loosest open boat I've paddled. Lots of fun in busy class III-IV stuff, good acceleration and very quick turning, but I would leave it at home for any river with long flats. because of its length, it tracks poorly. However, all things aside, a great boat.
