I rented this kayak today, haven't bought a yak just yet since I'm trying to find one that I really like. This Prodigy 10 did better than I anticipated. Tracked well for shorter size, and manoeuvred great! However, I did not like the large open cockpit. Also, eventhough this maybe consided a lightweight by some people, for a 5'1" female, that's the max weight I can handle for a yak. It weights 43 lbs. I think I'm going to stick with below 40 lbs. One other thing, is that this particular yak had knee padding, which I haven't used before. Certainly a must from now on. Can't believe the different with padding!
