The Option is a great design for whitewater creeking and river running. Molded out of very durable PE, it can take a lot more abuse than boats fabricated from Royalex. It is billed as stable and forgiving, and it more than lives up to that billing.
One small drawback is the amount of carving I had to do to fit comfortably into the boat. Foam is easy to shape so its not a huge deal.
The Option is quite nimble on the water. It snaps into small eddies easily. She likes to be driven from the front, but does not punish me much when I toss in strokes from the rear. For a craft of less than 9' it paddles more like a long boat than I expected. It comes up to speed quickly, but a short boat like the Option does lack the glide of a long boat.
Overall impressions are very positive--this is a fun boat to paddle.
