I love this boat more and more as time goes by. You'll have to forget my comments on speed. She may not be quite as fast as other composites, but she recently walked away from a Prijon Kodiak and a variety of Dagger and Perception boats, including my old Eclipse, and they were paddled by people half my age. And I thought I was loafing along at the time! Was just enjoying myself on this offshore paddle, when I looked around and found myself alone...had to wait several minutes for the rest of 'em to catch up. Credit the boat for this, NOT the paddler!!! So, now I have NO criticisms...
My 6'2", 240lb frame went into and out of the cockpit easily, and I was snug AND comfortable inside, with both good room and good bracing. Seat and back were comfortable and, again, easily adjustable. No, she didn't just take off the second the paddle touched the water, as both my Eclipse and the Looksha IV did. But she tracked like a dream, was faster than any boat I'b paddled, once I got her going, and, though she didn't go up on edge as easily as the Looksha, she wasn't hard to turn, either.
I've used her every day for two weeks, for several hours at a time and only get happier with her performance. Okay, she's no racer. But boy, does she cover water, and am I EVER comfortable! Think I'll keep her.
