thanks a lot
I have a Solo and like it. It's been a good boat for me and I tip in at about 13.5 Stones. Like any it has +/-. The devil is in the details.
My outfitting is a bit weird but the newer models have improved. It has more of an edge on it than a full blown creeker so it will behave as such. Good solid plastic and plastic structural components instead of foam.
I fiddle with the seat position for weeks before I got it dialed.

Another review; and I agree with his assessment of how it handles getting in and out of eddies
