  Tahe Marine Lifestyle Solo

Anyone know anything about the Tahe Marine Lifestyle Solo? I can't find anything on it anywhere except the official Tahe website: http://www.tahemarine.com/kayaks/lifestyle-solo/

I'm still on a quest for a short but narrow kayak (original thread: http://www.paddling.net/message/showThread.html?fid=advice&tid=1478656)

the Lifestyle Solo is 13.2ft x 22" so it caught my eye, and now the total lack of information, reviews, etc. on it is driving me nuts.
It also looks like theres a poly version thats even smaller, the Lifestyle Solo PE 12'6" x 21.25"...thats a little boat for listed capacity of 200lbs no?

 Great Products from the Buyers' Guide:

Mid-Hull Carts

Dry Bags

Sport Cases (Electronics)

Touring Kayak Paddles

Canoe / Kayak Anchors

I have a feeling that not many/none of these get imported to the USofA.

How about the Current Designs Vision 130? (13'x24")

Thinking of trying out the Vision 120 SP actually...its 12'x23"
Other boats on my short list are the Alchemy 14S (14'x23") and Eddyline Samba (14'x22.5"). I've test paddled none thus far though. The Vision is attractive to me on paper because it has the arch hull and smooth chines that I favor, where as the others (I believe) have more v-hulls and harder chines.

I use a WS Tsunami 135 at work (13.5'x22.75"). Its a good fit, but way too straight a tracker. For my personal boat I'm favoring maneuverability over tracking.

I'm actually obsessed with how my old-school MI415 fits/handles (14'x23" pic not of mine): http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/85/imgp0553p.jpg

but want something more practical with bulkheads, perimeter lines, etc.

So with that in mind, other suggestions welcome in addition to any info on the Tahe Lifestyle Solo.
Thanks!
