Purchased 2 of these kayaks in June 2008 for $200 each. I use them mainly of small to medium sized rivers and some lakes.
I would recommend these to beginners only wanting to see if they will like the sport or not. If you do, like myself, and use them at least once per week, you will be wanting to upgrade within a year.
The material doesn't take well to rocks. I have many deep scrapes and am anxious to see if I will ever rip a whole in this kayak. That doesn't mean these are bad kayaks, especially for the money.
Tracking isn't the best, however I wouldn't consider them tipsy. All in all, it is a good stater yak but I will be upgrading soon.
