Purchased the Rhythm 11 today as a 2nd kayak for family - I have an 11' America series from Dicks Sporting Goods that I use for Lakes, Creeks and Rivers and it handles great and really steady no matter what. I took the Rhythm 11 out on a local lake with almost no wind and was not impressed. While my son stopped paddling my America Series it tracked straight, the Rhythm 11 turned terribly. It is rated at 275# and I'm 220, I stopped at a local dock and was going to swap with my son to see how he handled it and got dumped into the lake - never had that happen before under any conditions. Disappointed for a $400 on sale Kayak - I hope they take returns. Other complaint, no drain plug, to empty the Kayak, got drenched again carrying the kayak to my car.
