I paddle my CD Solstice GTS for exercise on flatwater rivers and lakes. I have lots of boats, but this is the one that makes it out on the limited evenings and weekends; it simply is the fastest and most fun to paddle.
Despite the narrower hull, this is a very stable boat. Tracks well, but I nearly always use the rudder to improve on speed. From my GPS runs this boat is 0.2 to 0.3 miles per hour faster than my Wilderness Systems Cape Horn Pro. I paddled this for a while with a Werner Ikelos paddle- liked it, but switched to an Epic wing and now I LOVE it!
