I have owned the ultralight kevlar model for a year. It has proven to be everything that the manufacturer has claimed. It turns like a barge, but it was never intended to be nimble. It is light, fast, and handles strong wind and current with ease.
We recently entered a fund raising, six mile, canoe/kayak race in my area. We won our class easily and outrun everything else, except the purpose built racing kayaks, by a large margin. The people with mass produced sea kayaks could not believe their eyes.
This boat is perfect for the Tennessee River. It has spoiled me.
