I have the Diablo Chupacabra the stability is awesome. You will trade speed for stability but I feel it is worth it. If you are going to pitch and flip you will appreciate the stability. Also works great for sight casting reds on the flats. As far as tracking, the skeg is a must. Without the skeg you're going to put in some work. The same goes with windy days. I've had the Chupacabra for about 18 months now and absolutely love it.
