I have not seen many reviews for this kayak so here is my 10 cents worth. As far as a recreational kayak goes this is an excellent kayak.
Very roomy but you can still get a good connection to boat when needed. Very comfortable seating and setup. I have used the skeg just to try it out and it works as it should. I never use the skeg mind you (even in windy conditions) since this boat is easy to keep straight with proper paddling and it edges very easily. Note that I’m not comparing this to a Stratos or anything, it is a recreational kayak but it is a pleasure to tour in none the less. Other boats I own Dagger Stratos, Norse Idun, Necky Manitou, NDK Romany, Perception Carolina. I was thinking of selling the Baltic, as I have to many boats but it is just too comfortable and fun to float around in. Oh... forgot to mention, very stable kayak.
