but my limited experience with the T170 I feel it's a great boat. Fine glide, nice turning when edged, comfortable seating.
If you're not familiar with touring kayaks, it will probably take some seat time to get comfortable in it. It may feel 'tippy' at first, but that's a good thing. It will be one you can grow with, if it's a good fit for you.
