I was in the market for a kayak....I had in my mind a budget of $1500 for a nice boat that could track well and work for an over-night trip or two. I had pretty much set my heart on the Tempest 170 (by Wilderness) but tested out some other boats. That's when I discovered the beauty of hard chines (hard angles on the hull, rather than a smooth round bottom). The Triton was a bit out of my budget....but after paddling it, and learning how to roll in it, I was sold. I have not looked back one bit. I am 5'6, about 125lbs and it paddles like a dream. I know that I will not be out-growing this boat. It is a 17.5 ft fiberglass/carbon fibre composite boat with a skeg. The deck profile is very similar to the Tempest. HIGHLY recommended!!!
