This Mainstream Renegade Kayak is quite a bargain! Made more for the entry level kayaker, this kayak is stable, colorful and tough. The cost is low compared to other, similar kayaks, and can take a beating. Perfect for the novice. Its drawbacks are tracking and speed, therefore, I wouldnt recommend this kayak for an experienced kayaker. But, for beginners, and even intermediates, this is a good kayak.
