It tracks well and has amazing speed. The plano box storage next to the seat is perfect for keeping necessary items close at hand. The Slayer has excellent initial and secondary stability. I have bad knees and am balance-challenged, but I had no problem standing with the seat in the high position. Even with the seat in low position for paddling I still have room to stuff a rain jacket and small dry box. The storage space is amazing and unlike other Kayaks it is easy to turn around and reach into the tankwell behind you or to scoot up and reach the bow storage without ever feeling tippy.
I paddled 2 miles across a lake to fish a small creek and easily out distanced some others in our group. On the paddle back there was some chop and this Kayak paddled true without a lot of corrective strokes. There are gear tracks ad flat areas for mounting cameras and fishing rod holders or anything else you may need for either a day trip or a longer camping trip.
If you can only get one kayak, the Native Slayer series is the best fishing Kayak I have ever paddled.
