Has anyone paddled one of these new kayaks? They look terrific but as LL Bean is the only place that sells them and I can’t get to the “festival” to try it out I’m wondering how it paddles.
Sent it back
We ordered one of these for my wife this spring, and ended up sending it back to Bean. See my review here: http://www.paddling.net/Reviews/showReviews.html?prod=1758
She replaced it with a Carolina 13.5, and couldn’t be happier. Lesson learned: Don’t buy a boat you can’t paddle or at least look at in person. Lucky for us, Bean is very nice in return policy, and even paid the return freight to ship it back.
no adjustible footbrace?
I could not survive without footbraces. I go to demos, and I always have to adjust the foot braces.
