Epic explains its reasoning

I have an older model Epic 18 with a smart track rudder
and have no complaints about maneuverability.
Then again I'm not doing slalom events or paddling
among rock gardens avoiding obstacles .

There seem to be some that hold hard and fast to "tradition"
claiming a design must have done for a reason ,
and yet I think many designers merely followed what was before
without thinking out of the box.

Science does make evolutionary advances forward
-- via experiments and disproving hypothesis.

Some people simply love old cars, no matter what,
and a new fangled vehicle is just crap in their eyes.
Emotion often trumps what actually works very well.
