  i think i made a choice...
  Posted by: kray416376 on Jun-15-13 7:22 PM (EST)

i actually didnt care for the tracer once i tried it. the tippiness didnt bother me so much, i just felt it was harder to maneuver than i wanted and i wasnt greatly impressed by the tracking on calm water. i had tried the tampico and tsunami just prior and they just felt better.

someone posted earlier about the tampico being hard to turn and i would agree. plus no thigh pads on 140L.

i think i am about 90% certain i am going with the tsunami 140. it turns well, i feel very stable when i practiced my edging, and the speed wasnt terrible. a bit slower than the tampico but not enough to measure really. its alot heavier than i like but thats what husband is for :)

i thank everyone here for the valuable input. all of your advice played into my decision process more than you know. i feel wiser for it
