I've had the TW version for over a year now. I use it for freediving/spearfishing. The boat has virtually unmatched capacity for its size and weight and it is a very good performer: it goes very fast, maneuvers well, and is very seaworthy. Primary stability is weak but that makes the boat more maneuverable and responsive to hip movement. It feels almost as if you are wearing this boat, it becomes part of you. Secondary stability is excellent; once the boat hits its chine it bounces back with a vengeance. Most competitive spearfishermen use this boat for competitions because of its performance. It is easy to dive off and easy to get back on once one learns the technique. No weaknesses. Could be improved with a number of customizing touches like side handles, hip straps, deck bungies, etc. But all in all it is a complete boat. Mine has a rudder and it takes the work out of paddling in high winds or quartered seas. At 6'2'' and 200lbs this boat fits me just right.
