Our Mohawk XL-15 was ordered with the web seating for two paddlers. We have around 50 trips on it right now. The first thing we had to do right off the bat was lower the two seats about 2 inches each. Before we did this, the boat was very unstable, but after we did this, we got good stability, even in pretty good whitewater. The worst we have tackled in class 3s, but there is no doubt that the boat will handle anything on most rivers.
The reason I gave it an 8 is because the seating had to be lowered to get stability, and because it tracks very poorly in flat water. But the boat is great in the rapids and is holding up very well. Just make sure you know this is a White water boat and has extreme rocker that makes for poor tracking in flat water.
