This was the first kayak I actually owned, not borrowed. I was spoiled by a sleek 17' X 20" custom-made wood and Kevlar kayak which I used for many years: fast, lightweight, strong. What attracted me to the Eddyline kayaks was the rudderless design and the easy-care and performance of Carbonlite. The 13.5' Merlin LT has a long waterline for its relatively short length, and so tracks as well as many longer kayaks. Its design allows for extreme edging, so it also manuevers well--you can even spin around a paddle. This kayak paddles easily in calm or rough water--great surfing boat. The bow lifts over waves--keeping you dry, but bouncing playfully. The Merlin LT rolls easily. It is stable enough for a beginner, and doesn't limit the experienced paddler. I am 5'7" and 170lbs. and found the fit perfect whether day tripping or loaded for a week's camping voyage. Problem with leaking hatches has been solved by Eddyline, and they really support their products and listen to! users. Details of Eddyline kayaks are fabulous -- from recessed fittings to smooth ends on inside so your drybags don't tear. Graceful lines make it beautiful to look at mile after mile! Worth every penny for the pleasure.
