I have a glass Tempest 170 which I have been using for over 1 year and have absolutely no complaints. It tracks beautifully, is very responsive to leaned turns, rolls easily, and the compartments are always dry whether rolling or in rough water. I have been in heavy seas and very confused water and the boat handles both extremely well. I had it fully packed this summer with over a weeks worth of camping gear, clothing, water & food and the water was 1" below the shear line and it responded like it does when it's empty. And the seat allows me to stay in the boat for hours without any sort of numbing or aching problems. Definitely try one before buying any other.
