  How small are you? My 400X is loose
  Posted by: Yanoer on Mar-31-13 5:48 PM (EST)
 

on me at 5'6" and 165 lbs and is a lot of work for me to edge, but it's very easy to enter and exit, because of it's depth, so my wife, who's shorter and lighter, but rather stiff, still prefers it over the smaller kayaks that actually fit her better once she's in them, but she uses the rudder full time and has no interest in edging or rolling.

At my size, I don't find the 400X to be sporty, but I do find it to be very reassuring and well behaved in wind an waves quite efficient at a moderate cruising speed.

If you're small and are planning on rolling, either the 10X or 600X would likely be a better choice than the 400X.
