The Echo, designed by Nigel Foster, is the bigger of his 2 "day" boats, i have been paddling the Shadow and the Echo compliments the larger boat well, the initial stability is light but the secondry stability is good, the kayak has little rocker so the tracking is good with no tendency to weathercock, this is also a fast kayak. the trade off being that it is not as manouverable as you would expect for a short kayak, unless you lean turn and then it turns well, cockpit is comfy for a 6 footer, kayak gives a dry ride in chop and surfs well, also a sexy looker !!
