We bought a Ranger that has the Kevlar-reinforced lay-up in bow and stern. Also opted for sculpted carrying center thwart, and adjustable seats fore and aft. Very good performer, turns well, tracks well, and moves right along. Only complaint is it's a tank...weighs too much for my old body. The center thwart carrying yoke is almost a joke...but if you know you have short lugs from car to put in or take out, and no portages, I have no reservations in high recommendations. My 10 yr old daughter, in bow, can really move the boat around the river! Western knows their stuff.
