Pros: Pretty much everything... price, stability, quality, durability, the look, comfort, ease of cleaning, ease of use for beginners and experts.
Cons: It is kinda slow, but hey it's an inflatable that can handle some class IV's, so...
I currently own 8 kayaks, 5 of which are inflatable. I have had many other boats in the past. If I had only 1 boat in my fleet, it would be this one. It is the best all around inflatable made for under $1k for sure.
