YES! If you are kind of a mediocre hardshell boater but want something more exciting than the average ducky the Force is an excellent choice.If you are a solid kayaker I 'd stick to hardshells.I 've seen 70 year olds still paddle kayaks.
checkout a site called "the Boat People "for reviews of various duckies.I have the original XL, the one they call zippy.The weight capacity is 275 lbs. The newer ones are wider ( boo !) with slightly bigger tubes, so probably 300(?).
Pros : Boof machine -plays better than other ducks -as fast as most creek boats -less forgiving so more exciting -requires more skill than normal ducky -smaller for travel -good outfitting /locked in like kayak
Cons :Can 't carry much -squirrely laterals give you trouble -less forgiving if you want that -cockpit tiny for reentry (I 'm 6'4" 250)
They make an expedition model without the rear float bag so you can take a drybag.I doubt you 'll roll it, some can.I don 't know about the new loops Grif mentioned, but any ducky running 3 plus or harder should have a flip strap of webbing cinched taut across the bottom of boat and a trailing strap of webbing about 30 inches or less with no knots.With that set up you can self rescue /re enter fast like Grif said.
GRIF, Where do you keep your lawn chair and turkey legs in that boat?
