This is my first Kayak,my wife picked a Wilderness systems Cape Horn and I went for the Necky Looksha IV(plastic) looks are a 10,deck layout is a 10, inital stability is poor,not medium-poor,I'd give it a 4. secondary is excellent:10,speed is fantastic!that's a 10 easy,tracking:9, manuverability is an 8 It may be ,as I get more practiced,a superior boat, but as it now stands I must admit: my wife's selection is a better craft,stable,plenty of storage (despite being 2 FT shorter)and more forgiving at the expense of being marginaly slower-they both C to C roll well, the Looksha affords a better thigh grip than the cape horn and has a better seat,the 'Horn has a flat area behind the comb that makes your self rescue a breeze. A beginner would have more confidence in the Cape Horn.We use our Kayaks 2 times per week ,spending 4to6 hours per time, we have been out about 12 times-our purpose is to develop our skills for a 3 week deep blue trek next May . our primary use is the California Central coast,secondary is lakes and protected bay
