It is remarkably stable and tracks straight and true. Not quite as fast as our sit inside Perception kayaks, but it's ease of use makes this kayak the favorite pick at the waterfront. I took a point off for the very small storage hatch, but that is just a minor comment.
It compromises a bit of speed for stability, with it's dual keel design. It's a bit heavy for its length, but very solid thick ABS plastic that still looks new on top with only a few scratches on the hull.
I have a hard time giving this kayak a recommendation for anyone, because I feel there are better kayaks in this size range. My wife tried it as well and found the resistance more than her 11 foot kayak. She also barely touched the padded seat cushion and it snapped off. We will be replacing that.
Lastly the kayak tracks fine with no problems. I do like its build quality, although I have seen some on store display that were not as nice looking as the one I tried. It is unfortunate I really wanted to like it because of its build and shape.
