I know a lot of people hat ehte sponson system, and the Radissons for that matter. But I know first hand on my Radisson they make a huge difference. not always but when they do come into play they are awesome. they don't add any rigidness to the boat. they keep the gunnels from going under water. when I lean too far to one side, landing a fish, untangling my line from a tree, etc. all of a sudden you get that ''I am going swimming '' feeling but the sponsons keep you dry. I posted in the review section a really funny story about the wife sliding into the water and the sponsons keeping me dry. if the guide or the pack are more stable (initial) then the radison it may not matter. I am sold on the sponsons though I have seen first hand times where they saved me from a swim.
