I'm fairly new to sea kayaking, but having been on a few trips in NZ using a Q-Kayaks Penguin, I was keen to buy something similar. I've taken the Exodus out a few times and I am already congratulating myself on a sound purchase. Yes, it's fairly cheap, but it's exactly what I need. At 30kg, some would say that it's a bit heavy, but I am of medium build (5ft 9) and I don't have any problems moving the boat around. I pull it down to the beach on a Ruk trolley (the 40cm wheel version) and carry it on my shoulder about 50m to the water. Once in the water the boat is a dream to paddle. 30 mins into my first paddle and I was loving life! The rudder is fine, although I lubricate the overstem mechanism to make deployment smoother. Good buy... Goodbye!
