---TCI-lite – do not confuse this with vacuum bagging! Vacuum infusing is one of the most advanced construction methods used in the composite industry. This production method ensures the best strength/weight ratio possible.---
I have a Tahe (Zegul) with infusion lay-up. It is not so light and certainly not the state of the art that they like to claim. I have other infusion lay-up kayaks that are lighter (but maybe not as strong).
Tahe's lay-up in my hybrid composite (carbon/Kevlar)is a bit messy and there a lot of excess resin there. Maybe the vacuum was a bit too low?
I have not cracked either but then again I have not had the opportunity to test them in extreme conditions of rocks landings and dropping on concrete curbs :-)
