We recently purchased 2 x 140's(Roto)with rudders, after spending forever review every kayak know to man on this site - LOL
We needed something that our teenage daughters could use when we all hit the lake (we have a tandem for me and the wife) but we also want the ability to use them ourselves solo. We are mostly in smaller lakes but 1/3 of the time in a wide class 1/2 river (rocky beaches)
Short story... the WS Tsunami 140 were just the ticket. Exceptionally adjustable seat, great storage (0 problems with hatches they go on and off effortlessly and hold out the water.(I flipped boat and held hatches under for 1 min..0 water)
The workmanship is excellent to really see it put a Necky and a WS side by side and it really stands out. I am 6' and 220lb and can easily enter and exit the cockpit just fine and with the easy of the adjustable thigh brace I can refit the boat to my daughter size in under 60 sec.
This boat tracks great, and yes you can turn it quick without the rudder using some basic strokes but deploy the rudder and it spins on a dime. Wind conditions and chop have so far not saddened our decision to purchase.
I really wanted a Delta 15.5 but after doing comparing paddles back to back the Tsumami just took less effort to keep straight (no rudder deployed)while paddling into headwind with 2 ft chop. I do like the Delta rudder controls better(gas petal style)however certainly not a deal breaker plus I could retro fit Seadogs brand petals if I had to have gas petal style. Finally the seat is the best, I have sat in a few different types but again I recommend you to look at and sit in this seat once and it will speak for itself.
