I have paddled both an OK Prowler and WS Ride (though it was the original Ride) and greatly preferred the Ride. In all respects - comfort, control, speed - the Ride was better. I thought the OK Prowler was a bit of a dog. It's an adequate kayak and I wouldn't turn anyway away from one, but compared to a Ride it wouldn't get my money.
That said, everyone has their own window on the world. Get out and paddle them to see what YOU like.
