I purchased a Talon about a month ago. So far the boat's been great. I went for the Talon because of the weight, design, and pricing, and haven't been disappointed.
I paddle mostly on open water so I use the skeg regularly, though I'm not sure it's needed as the boat tracks really well even without it. The thigh braces provide great support and a snug fit.
The finish is great with no visual defects, and definitely turns heads in the water. The boat is far faster than my old plastic boat in the water and clearly more efficient, as long distances have now become short ones.
I would recommend this boat to anyone. I have not been able to find a comparable boat.
