This is the first kayak that i have owned. It is a great beginner kayak. It tracks very straight, and it is very stable. You have to try to flip it to flip it. I've leaned so far that water started to pour in and still didn't flip. I've taken it out on rivers lakes and even hit 2.5 ft. rollers in Lake Huron. This thing is rugged made w/ thick plastic. It felt much sturdier for kayaks in it's price range. The only draw back is w/ stability is you lose speed. But if you're a beginner this is great a kayak.

We have used kayaks that would only go in circles and this one really tracks nice. It is easy for me to load by myself on the station wagon rack. I bought it for a birthday gift for my daughter but it looks like we will need another one!

I bought one of these in Sept. 2010 and used if for 3 short trips, down some Class 3 and 2 rapids and one day on a small lake. For me being a beginner, I thought I did really good with it in the rapids. It is very stable and easy to maneuver. I would recommend it for any beginning recreational user.

My wife and I purchased 2 of these to use for recreational paddling and fishing from. We launched them for the first time at a local state park. I found them extremely stable, easy to maneuver, tracked pretty straight. The water tight rear compartment was handy for towels and such and the wide cockpit provided enough room for a small cooler of soda between my feet.
We are beginner paddlers, and had no problems with this kayak. If you are looking for a purely recreational boat that is stable and wide, give this one a try. The only drawback is they are a bit heavier at about 45#
