I tried Kipawa models in Kevlar and in glass, along with its big brother the Quetico, seeing if I could persuade myself to buy. But I found them not fast; they require a lot of energy to get up to and maintain speed; and if you are looking for any kind of glide, forget it. I believe that front rocker acts as a sort of brake, once you stop paddling. Years ago, when the Swift company was making Sawyers, I bought an X-17 from them, and it is from several years with the X-17 that I measure the Kip and Quetico.
