Dagger designed a great boat with the exception of the backband and foot pegs. Both have been replaced with higher quality items. Minimal added cost for an awesome boat. I have paddled 3 foot waves, wide open water, on Lake Huron in 38 degree water and felt safe in the boat. Many, many times I've paddled inland lakes in Southeastern Michigan with sea kayaks friends and all are amazed that I stay out in front with my hull speed. My boat turns faster, handles better, takes abuse of rocks, and has room for plently of gear easily challenging many sea kayak designs. Dagger should really take heed and change the backband.
