This is a very well constructed boat. The valves are a Halkey-Roberts style that requires an adaptor that Aire supplies. Compared to my Inova Safari this boat is more stable due to its wider width. That also makes it a slower boat and harder to surf with. On a class 2 to 3- run I like the Safari. If I was on class 3 to 4- I would want to be in the Strike. Seat is comfortable. I have used the boat twice and my wife has used it twice. She prefers the Strike due to better stability. The Strike comes in around 36 lbs which is a little heavy. Well constructed with urethane bladders. If you want stability and great construction consider this boat. Lighter than the Tomcat by a little and better constructed. For the occasional boater on class 2 it is hard to beat the Tomcat. The warranty for the Strike is 5 years and the Tomcat is 1 year. That should give you some idea of how Aire sees the construction quality of these two boats which will be on most potential buyers radar screen. Overall I like this boat a lot and give it an eight because it is a little slow and heavier than say a Force. But, the Strike is much more reasonably priced. Would I buy again? Yes
