Your Kestrel "is a drag in the twistys"?

And it's set up for kneeling?
That's a bit of a surprise for me.
My recollection is that Dave Curtis told me over the telephone that the Kestrel and it's ancestor the Curtis Vagabond behave very similarly and most people wouldn't notice much difference between the two.
I find my Vagabond to be very maneuverable with just a bit of heel, but I don't trip with it and usually don't have a total load over 170 lbs for day paddling and messing around.
Maybe the Kestrel really isn't as maneuverable as the Vagabond or maybe you just want REALLY maneuverable.
