Is the boat stable? Easy to maneuver in the water? How fast is it? As far as stability many owners are able to stand-up-fish from this kayak, which is probably the ultimate test for stability. Taking into consideration both the length to width ratio and the light weight design this is going to be a very fast kayak on the water.
On maneuverability: The light weight design does a lot to create a highly manageable kayak. This is a really good choice for anglers who might have limited upper body strengthen or shorter arms since the width is under 30 inches.
What is Rotomolded Polyethlene? This is a special derivative of Polyethylene which many kayaks and canoes have been traditional produced from. The advantage of this material is that it is almost indestructible. You will really have to beat and beat see even the slightest sign of damage.
The disadvantage if damage does happen to occur it is a little difficult to repair. But repair guides do exist.

Where should you buy this kayak where will you get the best price. That depends on you do you want to buy this at a store near your house or do you want to order it online? If you do want to buy from somewhere near your house I would recommend your local sporting goods stores or checking to see if there are any specialty kayak stores in your area.
But if you for sure want this model – Call the stores up first to make sure they do carry it before you waste your time and gas.
If you want to buy it online then look at the prices at either or both Amazon or EBAY. Amazon has better customer service, offers free shipping on many items and also has very good prices. But with EBAY you might get lucky and find an unbelievable awesome deal. There are some very good sellers of kayaks on EBAY make sure you look at their rating before purchasing from any seller.
