  It depends on you....

pros for the Bell kevlar: 1) light to carry up Raquette Falls, across Mud Pond Carry and some other carries that aren't wheelable
2)more efficient to paddle
3) paddle a boat you really seem to love

pros for royalex or poly
1) can use portage wheels (a huge advantage on the grand portage and lots of other portages)
2) run stretches of whitewater without worrying about the boat as much (thus reducing the amount of portaging necessary)
3)subject a beater boat to daily abuse and preserve the boat you love.
