Yes, slalom boaters like the light weight and efficiency of composite boats, but the racers are almost the only guys in composites these days (okay, squirt boaters too) and somewhere in the Class III / Class IV range the racers go to plastic. But "performance" means different things to different groups of paddlers and yeah, composites are better for some things while plastic is better for others.

Don't know why that is getting you stirred up.
