I went from an 11' pelican that was narrow and very unstable. I have the 2016 FS12T and even though its not as fast as that pelican it is SO much more stable, more room, super comfortable, and easy to stand in. now as for tracking, it is slower but I'm fishing not racing so I just go with the flow. I love mine!!!! and for the money you spend you get a great kayak! so my honest opinion is this yak is top notch. well worth the money and a great fishing yak. I recommend then to my buddies all the time.
