The weight factor is hard to beat. You can literally pack this thing through woods to a put-in. Standing is difficult, not easy like the heavier plastic model looks to be. Hull slap is huge in anything other than slick water, although it doesn't seem to spook skinny water redfish (whom are spooky) much, maybe because the boat is so light that it's not causing much concussion under the water. Anyway, after 25 years of slinging 60 lb. kayaks around, this boat is literally a walk on the beach!
The double hull makes it possible to stand while in the boat, you have to be careful but you can stand up when you need to for brief periods. The boat is a bit less rigid than a poly kayak, I don't find it to be a problem. It is not for long distances, if you don't fish and you want to paddle 5 miles, there are other choices. If you fish on flatwater it is a very worthy and comfortable prospect. Remember, when you go fishing to a place you drive-to, you are going to lift/carry it at least 4 times..easy on the back !!
