It should be compared to VCP Avocet LV and SKUK Pilgrim.
At my level of fitness it was really quick to accelerate, would pop out with each stroke. Just like Avocet LV and Pilgrim
The design philosophy is a bit different from Valley and SKUK, depends what you like in a boat. I prefer loose hulls - as in you have to work to make them go straight, as opposed to working a boat turn. TRs are typically better trackers.
Other than that - boat fit is personal. I felt good in it at 5.9x150lb. But I felt good at others as well.
The thing to really appreciate with TideRace boats is quality of construction. If you pay more for the HardCore layup, you definitely get what you pay for.
