This is my first kayak and I love it! On the water it is easy to handle and turn, also has great tracking and excellent stability. It has lots of storage room including a day hatch. The rudder helps a lot in windy conditions.
On the minus side the boat is a little bit heavy (but not much) maybe it is the price to pay for the great stability and storage room; another thing I found is that it tends to deform very easily when carried with foam blocks, so you need to buy a good rack system to carry your Strait.
I must mention that I paddle on quiet rivers and small lakes. Overall a good kayak I am happy with it so far and I would recommend it as it makes your life easy on the water.
