Submitted: 11-08-2005 by PeteVS

I bought a MR Freedom Solo new about a month ago, and have had it out 3 or 4 times. On the positive side, it tracks better and is much faster than I expected. On the downside, it ships water over the gunwhales in front in class 2 water. Backpaddling becomes necessary to get thru waves, with consequent loss of some control. Class III is not do-able in this canoe. I will try to extend the decks, or something to keep water out. But it turns OK, and will serve as an excellent all-round solo boat. My 15 foot Dagger Legend has it all over this MR Solo when it comes to whitewater, but takes more effort to eddy turn. All-in-all The Solo has exceeded my expectations in some ways, but does not live up to MR's claim that it is a downriver white-water boat.
