I own two Approach 9.6 kayaks and a Blackwater 10.5.
The Approach is more stable and maneuverable than the Dagger Blackwater and Element recreation kayaks, both of which are faster. The seats are more comfortable, too. The two issues I've had with the Approach were the skegs and the leaking "dry" storage area. The skeg would hang up. I fixed the skeg problem and use dry bags. I refitted the braces on one of the kayaks for shorter people. Friends who've compared my Approach with my Blackwater like the Approach for it's stability in rough water & ease of turning, while others, mostly lighter kayakers, like the Blackwater for its speed.
