    Web site describes it as, “Signature performance, but designed for paddlers with a smaller frame, this touring kayak features a lower deck, narrow beam, and slightly shorter length.” I’m 5’6″, 150. Prior owner is about 5’11, 190.
    Good primary stability, excellent secondary. It is a fast boat. Rolling is easy, self recoveries are smooth. No accidental spills yet though.
    I took it to the Apostle Islands, Wisconsin, Lake Superior, for a week with gear in this boat (8/2015). Some big swells. It was great.
