I picked up a demo Alchemy last year and have really enjoyed it. If I'da designed it it would be a bit narrower and less boxy but I still like it. Think sea kayak that turns very, very well.
I had rented a Zephyr and found that it was too similar to my Tempest. I've always been curious about the Pintail with it's reputation as a rough water boat but I never got to paddle one. Discussion on PNet leads me to believe that the Delphin and Alchemy have replaced it; they do the job better with 3 or 4 feet less boat to lug around.
