I've never paddled an embudo, but I had a salto and loved it. Stay away from the red color though because there was a batch of bad red plastic. Almost everyone I've ever talked to loved the salto. Gimme a call if you're still looking to get a new salto - I may be able to help :wink:
The Salto is a great boat. If you are 195 and looking to do some multi-day trips, I would talk to one of our Team Boaters out there and demo a boat. I know some folks that are your size and take the Salto on 4-6 day trips. It is all personal preference.
And, No, not all red Saltos are bad. We had 8 boats that we are replacing for some folks. A few boats in that batch were botched.
Joe, sure I'll take you down the Green! Go left...oops, I ment right! haha
Have a great day!
