Right now I am considering a used Outfitter, the Lynx sounds a little more advanced, but maybe what I should get is something better than a Tomcat (longer lasting, better maneuverability) but still relatively stable. I can see how the extra bouyancy could make it a bit dicey in high water, lots of high-siding and paddle bracing maybe! If I can find a used Lynx and a used Outfitter, then my choice becomes more difficult...
Does anyone have experience in similar water with both a Lynx and Outfitter (one-person versions)? I'd be curious what the difference is since they are so similar (with the Outfitter having the larger tubes, maybe less chance of falling out? but tougher to climb back into!
Please keep the comments coming, though, I am learning a lot by reading everyone's posts!
