I bought the Guide for all around use, save crazy whitewater. I paddled it today for the first time, typical to the reviews, holy unstable! Secondary stability, I bet you can't tip it by accIdent. I have been paddling for 20 years and the ONLY downside is weight. Either come up with $400 more for a comparable boat in Royalex, or get in shape. 74 lbs. won't kill you if you balance it right. I am 6', but not buff, and I can get it on a Durango no problem, and cary it forever with a yoke. I love it!
