I bought the Dagger Cypress with a rudder, and took it out for the first time today. I should also mention that I am a total beginner; this was also my first time EVER in a kayak.
At first it felt tippy to me because of my inexperience, but within a few minutes I began to feel more secure in it. It was very fun to paddle, and the cockpit was comfortable. It tracked reasonably well, although I'm sure it will be even better after I master rudder control! Speed was very good, although my daughter's Perception Catalina was faster (which ticked me off, especially considering I paid about $180 more for my Cypress!).
Another cool thing is the variety of colors you can get it in! Mine is a really pretty teal blue with white cloudy swirls. Very cool looking. Overall, I would recommend it.
