I understand that the Pintail's stable enough, but it apparently doesn't track well unless you're experienced/very smooth, i.e. it's 'squirrelly'.
I agree with the point further above that Valley in general might be moving towards boats that are lower down on the learning curve/are more 'newbie friendly'. Pintail got cut, Nordkapp Classic got cut.
Aquanaut is newb-friendly, but seems to have been more a victim of duplication (Etain and Gemini ST).
My guesses, anyway... Valley doesn't talk much about why they do stuff. Heck, they can't even update their website.
