Was looking for a cheap boat and boy does the Rhythm fit that criteria.
The poor - Cheap seat back, no cup holder with the seat, and no paddle park. For $20 more Perception could really enhance this recycled Dagger mold boat.
The notso bad - Nice lines, rear bulkhead with hatch.
The ride - This 11' boat is 'tween the performance of a cheap beginners 9' and a somewhat decent 12', The lack of a distinct keel line means the boat paddles a little swiggley. This is OK avoiding obstacles in a river, but kind of irritating in the wind on a lake.
In all, not a bad boat available for the mid-three hundreds brand new, just keep your expectations in check.
