Thanks Guys.

I have read many great reveiws on the Caribou S, and very few on the newer.

I guess from using a Zephyr this past season, its hard to get into a different boat and expect it to respond as well. Thats why I liked the Caribou, it just "felt" light on the water and responded well. Mind you it was the 2nd only fiberglass kayak i have ever tried....that could make a difference too.

Was driving down the highway again tonight and saw a FG Tempest 165 at a dealer. It was a demo/used with a number of light scratches on bottom, no gouges though otherwise rest of boat was in great shape. They were asking $1600. Seemed like a nice snug fit. Will have to go back when open to test paddle. See how different it is from the 170. Could probably paddle it for a season and sell it for 1400
