A shredder is a soft shell cataraft for 2 or 4, or even 6 peeps. The 2 person model is pretty affordable and considered to be pretty hi performance.
here's a vid

I paddle a cat w/ my 15 year old son sometimes. He has a kayak, but hates swimming, so it does not get much use.

I bought one of the Zoik RF Solo's from Gravity Play for $499 just before the price went up. I have paddled hard boats for some time but it is my first IK. It looked brand new out of box. I have paddled it about a half dozen times now. We will see how it holds up over time but so good. I am having a blast with it!!! I think the tandems are a bit higher but I would definitely consider Zoik.

We have an NRS MaverIK 2 that is incredible. Not sure if this is still true, but when we bought ours about 3 years ago, it was the most lightweight IK on the market. This makes a huge difference in portability and launching into hard to access areas. Its made of hypalon so with some steady care of it, it will be a lifelong boat. Sounds like you found a great deal, so good luck with your newly purchased fun!

I love my Tomcat tandem, it handles like a refrigerator but can carry tons of stuff on class II-III water.
