pretty well covered. I've rowed all my life, and paddled for about 10 years now in inflatables. current quiver is a sotar legnd, a lynx, a sotar ik, and an alpacka.
love 'em all. the packraft is a really fun option. If I am on some bouncy II-III and a little bored, the packraft spices things right up. I'm still working on getting to a comfortable IV skill level before I try to expedition in it. I can't wait to hike up Big creek on my next MF trip. Heck, the packraft serves as a great spare boat if you're doing something really silly.
the packraft needs some bow weight. trim is incredibly important. I've been impressed with the build quality, durability, and overall performance of mine.
I bought for things like chetco, lost river, escalante style hike-in or -out access.
But I'm finding I really enjoy running it for fun too. Perhaps at some point I'll decide that's too much abuse, but no harm so far.
still, unless you backpack the boat, it's particular performance/cost point may not make sense.
