I make no apologies for the Pirouette in comparisons. It's a far superior boat for my needs. If you have nonstop rapids and enjoy gymnastics more than paddling, get a new school boat. If you've got long pools between drops (as I do), get a boat that moves out while maintaining a high degree of maneuverability. That's the Pirouette. The only flaw is the cheesy outfitting. Grab loops aren't that critical on a small boat, but the woven straps are bush. Ditto the wire cable security loop. But, in perspective, those points are take a back seat to a ww kayak that has some zip. It also has sculpted, flowing lines, much more attractive than the truncated little spuds.
