Having owned/paddled a C30 Fusion, LL XP10, and currently a Jackson Rogue, for me the Rogue is the best all-rounder and way more comfortable for longer paddles. But I suggest holding out for Jackson's new Traverse which will be one killer crossover and probably starts shipping before too long.
Here's the Jackson page about it : Traverse - Jackson Kayak
I used to spend a **lot** of time in crossovers fishing lakes/reservoirs, workout paddles on same (as far as11 miles--long for a hybrid), floats up to Class III-, so have some familiarity with them. Had a very long look at the new JK Traverse prototype and its impressive. Stability of their Karma, nimbleness of their Zen. Their uber comfy UniShock adjustable foam /bulkhead/footplate that you adjust without getting out of the boat, lightish weight for easier schlepping, a couple of rod holder tracks built in, best deck storage of any crossover. Huge space for cargo, their outfitting which for me is the most comfortable of anything, including the Dagger Katana. But best of all, IMO,are the promising lines of the JK Karma for huge stability and the nimbleness of their Zen.
I've also got a lot of time in the JK Zen and Karma so figure if their good traits port over to a crossover, that's very, ver
y interesting. The hull shape looks like they will. If I can figure my way around intermittent upper-body paralysis I'll eagerly pop for one.
