This is my first kayak. I've rented a few, but found them slow and hard to control. The Alto is different; it glides along with very little effort and is easy to control. When I increase effort for more speed the boat accelerates nicely. I am 5'9" and weigh 155 lbs. The size works well for me (I was concerned at first the boat might be too big). I rate the boat 10 because it's the best I've paddled and it surpasses my expectations.
