I love my Glider. Its fast. In fact, using the Sound rowers classification scheme, its the fastest of all "fast Sea kayaks" (any "faster" and it moves into the surf ski category). I bought the boat for racing, but I discovered that its a great expedition boat as well. Roomy, stable, and able to carry a ton of gear. My only gripe? It sits very high in the water and therefore can be a real problem in high winds. Also, the low rocker and long length means it needs the rudder more often than I would prefer. Finally, its soft chine gives it a sluggish response to a lean and makes it less than ideal for surfing wakes and big ocean swells.
