I just got four of them for my program and people are liking them. They are fast and fun to slalom around in. They surf well and are great for old school huge enders. Even some of my advanced kids are enjoying getting out of the playboats, hauling ass, and making hard moves. They are big. I can paddle the 59, the 69 is what they recommend and I am paddling the 79 on Ruby horsethief next week. The outfitting is sick. I am having to pry them out of my instructors hands so that the kids can paddle them. they are big and inspire a power on style of paddling.
Anyway, with Barrel running all the time I am loving having it around.
