Zephyr vs. Alchemy

All said above is good advice, but there is some personal pref. at play. I've got both a Z 155 & Alch. 14S, (& a tempest 165pro as well) like all of them very much. Significantly diff boats IMO. I pref. the Z for most of my "active cond." paddles because it is almost as manuverable as the Dagger, rides the rough water almost as well as the Tempest and I'm just more comfy with the fit. Love the way it surfs in bigger cond. as well. The Delphin was fun as noted, don't much care for the feel of the Valley boats. Personal pref. Try 'em all if you can.
All thebest, t.george
