Excellent layup and overall manufacturing quality. Light and strong. Rudder cables a bit short for me (6-3 ht). Seat comfortable and fits well. It has enormous speed potential. I bought as an intro to high speed skis and kayaks. It has the benefit of not swamping when capsized, and can launch into the rough off a beach, unlike most high performance (racing) kayaks. Before this boat, I had a beginner's surfski and various touring boats.
On flat water, speed potential is very high. For 1+ hr workouts, 6mph is a very sustainable pace including turnarounds and zig zags around bouys. The only downside to this boat is its unforgiving nature. To go from a beginner surfski to this will require total commitment and lots of swimming. After some time, the hull is much more comfortable. I just swam a lot for the first month of having this boat. Now, after 3 months, I can fly on flat water, and feel quite stable. Still working on the rougher water.
Overall, an excellent quality boat with really high performance potential.
