It's amazing to me the spectrum of other reviews. I have owned a spectrum for 4 years and have crossed the upper Chesapeake, fished in small coves and completely covered the susquehanna river below the conowingo dam. It's been a pleasure to paddle, store and load on my jeep. As a first kayak, I highly recommend it. I now have a Chesapeake 17, that I recently completed - yes a great deal more volumn and even lighter, but the Spectrum is just so versatile and I don't worry about the cosmetics as much. Look for one on sale from somone upgrading - you can get a great deal - happy paddling.
