This is our 1st kayak. We also purchased the highback seats to go with it. We looked at and did research on many sit-in and sit-on kayaks before we decided on the Tandemonium. This thing is FUN!!
If you're someone who's worried about tipping -then this is the kayak for you....I dare you to try and tip it over -you can't....well maybe you can if you stand up on the side of it -but even then you'll fall in the water and the kayak will right itself.
If you don't want a wet seat the entire time you're out -then this is the kayak for you. We each got a little water in the foot area from paddle drips, ocean waves splashing and getting in and out of it to swim. Other than that we stayed dry -until we wanted to get wet. The last time we were out in it we were in a harbor with choppy water and it handled great. It's not the fastest kayak out there by far -but, if you want something to go exploring in, get some sun, sight see, take pictures, bird watch, etc. -this is perfect kayak....
Only con is it's heavy -69 lbs. It's awkward to figure out how to carry it at first (it could use a second handle on the each side) each time we went out we got a little better at it. We're taking it to a really long river next --can't wait!!!
