The Frenzy is a good example of needing to judge a kayak for its intended use. I was visiting another town and wanted to paddle a little, so I rented a Frenzy. I immediately found a severe limitation--speed. But it was not intended to have speed, so I changed my focus from boat to nature and had a good time. Two other complaints were lack of support for my back and alway sitting in water do to the scupper holes.
What is the Frenzy good for? Any paddling where you are not supplying the forward impetus--creeks, rivers, surfing, etc. It would also be good for those who just need a platform for play--a very worthy use.
If you want to paddle, look elsewhere; if you want to play, this may be your craft.
