I rented the Storm today for the second time for a 6 hour river trip in Alberta, Canada. I'm so happy I did. Last weekend I rented a Necky Looksha 17 and I had nothing but problems with the pedals, and the rudder cords consistently got caught up in the pedal cables... very lame, very frustrating.
The Storm's components just seem sturdier, more reliable, and they work consistently! I'm seriously considering buying a Storm. The only thing I'd like to see added on this model is a day hatch. This is the 4th poly touring kayak I've rented, and as far as value and reliability, I've gotta' give it to the Storm.
