I'm 5'8, 163 lb., 3 season with a FB Tesla NM 17.4f.
This is my first sea kayak. This boat fit me perfect like the contact with the boat, strong like a tank, lots of room for long trips, tracks very well empty & with load (more slow....), P&S very good , not to tipi , any wind just great , event some surf ok, turn quite easy need to keep good momentum if u are full load . Heavy kayak it's a reality . Hatch lid weak section some water. Rudder fine. Cockpit & seat i find cold so i put a mat. If they built again: put Rudder cable inside & better quality UV gelcoat on top of boat & UV bungie cord .
I recommend for your first boat or as a Rental.
