I just purchased a used Vista from a local dealer and am very impressed. I have paddled a number of kayaks, both rentals and friends kayaks and have to say this is the best handling boat I have paddled to date. It is light, extremely fast, tracks like an arrow even in choppy water and is very dry. I would highly recommend this boat as a first for anyone looking for the most bang for your buck.
The only dislike I have is in the foot room department. I am 5'10" at 175 lbs. My size 8.5 foot barely fits with my toes touching the underside of the deck. I wouldn't recommend this boat to anyone much larger than myself. Other than that minor drawback, I am very excited to own it and can't wait to get out into bigger waters with it.
