I only have 14 hrs in my 2002 Merlin XT but Eddyline has outdone themselves with this great kayak.T he most important thing for me was a longer cockpit, which has gone from a keyhole 31 1/2 long to an oval at 35" long. Lord, what a difference. Now I can straddle the kayak from the back, walk up to the seat, sit down and and then put both feet in. (couldn't do that with the 2001 XT ). It still handles, carves and paddles like the older XT's, which always was great. But now I can get in it without falling over. Thanks a million Eddyline!
