They don't make this model any more so if you want one here is your chance to get it at a great price. If you are a large person, or just like lots of room to move around, and want a light, comfortable, easy in and easy out kayak this one is remarkable. It will easily and comfortably accommodate a 6'6" 350 to 400 pound person and still paddle well. It is the luxury liner of the recreational kayak fleet. Lot's of extra room, an amazingly comfortable seat, large cockpit and huge stability make for true comfort and ease of entry and exit. As far as paddling; it is surprisingly fast and easy to maneuver. Smooth may be the best descriptor. If you like nature photography, fishing or just cruising around the lake and looking good, this is the right kayak for you.

Kayaks are available in several kinds of materials and with different construction methods:

Composite kayaks are made from fiberglass, kevlar and graphite in different combinations. Fiberglass, is very durable and makes a strong and economical kayak.Kevlar is lighter and very tough so less needs to be used to make a strong and very durable kayak. Graphite is even lighter than kevlar and is used in strategic locations on some models.

Plastic, Super Compound Linear Polyethylene, (SCL) is extremely tough and durable. It is used in the rotomolded models. Cuts or breaks are so rare I have never seen one, even on white water boats. UV inhibitors are blended in to protect from the sun. This is the most economical durable material Current Designs kayaks are built with. The down side is a little bit of flex and a bit more extra weight.

Thermoformed Composite System (TCS). These are made from an Acrylic and ABS plastic laminate. This plastic is stiffer and lighter than SCL polyethylene. It has the look and light weight of a fiberglass kayak, but costs less. For a more in depth description of these materials the Current Designs web site, or a catalog will help.
