alot of these Piedmont rivers and creeks have long pools and eddies and dam backwaters in between rapids that make paddling them in a ww kayak or even decent crossover a real chore. we've had alot of fun running them in Tsunamis instead. (note the 135 is a low-volume model; the 125/145 are the big-guy models.)

I suggest taking a look at the Jackson Rogue and Journey. They made some design changes to the Rogue that improved it over their previous Allwater crossover. It has a slight V at the bow that helps it paddle decently on flatwater in between the fun stuff. The Journey is similar to the Tsunami but more maneuverable.
