I'm new'ish to Kayaking and have a WONDERFUL nimble P&H Sorpio LV Kayak. I like how it's relatively light at 50lbs (55lbs with everything), handles very well, feels well connected and so forth.
I'm now looking for a Kayak which has the least drag over that coveted 4.5knots range. I'm ready to buy a larger kayak around 18-20' and was wondering if anyone has used the following Sea Kayaks or recommends a brand I look into?:
Valley Sea Kayak - Rapier 18 or Rapier 20
Skim - Distance 19
Skim - Dex 17
QCC - Q700x 18'
Warren Light Craft (overrated?) - Little Wing 18'
PS> I don't get the Little wing, it seems to have just made the boat more stable while maintaining good speed and not really have reduced drag... looks really nice though..
