Purchased 2 Old Town Loon 120's last yr. in FL. We used in the canals, ocean, lakes & rivers. It is slightly heavy @52lbs, and add gear. Can't keep up with Sea Kayaks, but on our groups trips, I can lead or take the rear guard positions. We had up to 28 kayaker's on our trips.
It is actually pretty stable in sea waves, being buffeted crossing open harbors. Never capsized, no spray cover, but have blige pump and sponge for water issues. I think the Loon 120 is a very good purchased for what we use it for. Bought 2 for $750.00. I am thinking of purchasing 1/2 spray covers. The Loon 120's are made of polyurethane. We took them in water less that a foot deep to ocean deep water. Bottoms got scratched from some underwater obstacles.
Overall on a one to ten rating, they rank a nine.
