Essence 17 kayak

anyone ever paddle the Perception brand 17 ft kayak Essence?

no but
I sat in one at the store. It has a monster deck. I really like some room but it was excessive. Im pretty sure it is very similar to the eclipse. That might give you another line of comparison.

I paddled one once for a short time. It is a good boat. It has all the features one would want in a sea kayak. It is similar to the Wilderness Systems Tempest, but a little stronger tracker, possibly due to less rocker? However, it is not too difficult to turn and responds well when put on edge.

thanks for the reply’s
