This was my third kayak. First was a carolina plastic 14'. The eclipse is well built and pretty fast. However, I am 170 5' 11" and never felt comfortable in the boat. It was so tippy it had no initial stability. I tried for 3 months to like this boat but the handeling charistics were unexceptable to me. With maybe 40 lbs on the centerline of the kayak it had reasonable stability. I could almost roll the boat by just turning around in the seat. It was comfortable but the stability of the carolina has spoiled me. I purchased this boat to keep up with a friend who had a no name 16' kayak. He tried my boat and came to the same conclusion as myself. I took this boat in lakes as well as the gulf of mexico. It will surf the swells quite well.
