Feedback on the mini Aire Tomcat LV?

I'm looking for some feedback on the Aire Tomcat LV - the smaller kid sized IK that came out last summer. Has anyone had their kid paddle one? My kids sat in one at CKS the other week and it fits them great and it looks like it will be easier to handle than the Aire Force they currently use - but does the narrow width create stability issue?

Any feedback is appreciated.

Great kids boat. I've paddled it and have to say as IKs go, it's actually pretty fun (and I'm 185). Naturally it isn't going to be quite as stable because of the width compared to the Force, but it will definitely be easier for them to get a good paddle stroke and learn good paddle control with a proper sized paddle.

Disclaimer: I do work for an Aire/Tributary dealer, but we used these in our IK paddle school and our rental fleet, and everybody that tried one (kid or not) loved it.
