What exactly is the benefit of a solo IK compared to a tandem?
I'm considering buying two tandem IKs, either Zoiks or Tomcats for
me and the family (wife, 8 yr old, and 4 yr old). But I'm playing
with the idea of a tandem and a solo (I'm sure
the 4 yr old and I would fit on a solo). Exactly how much more
menuverable is a solo? Don't seem to save much money,
give up 2 feet, 100 lbs of storage. I kinda doubt a Zoik can
be used like an Aire force and play on waves, so is it simply
tighter turns for technical rapids? My 8 yr old probably will
want to go solo sometime soon so would a solo really be much
easier than for him to go solo on a tandem?
Thanks for any advice
