    After a 3 year search for a fast touring kayak, I opted for the 18x Sport and have never regretted it. The volume for camping gear is very impressive, and the day hatch design is about the only one which really allows the paddler to reach in and close it again. While the speed is impressive, the secondary stability is surprising and welcome in challenging conditions. The rudder works amazingly, and you never have to worry about it getting hung up on kelp as it just kicks up and springs back. Turns are easy and are even quicker with a little edging. It tracks beautifully even with the rudder up. Get used to lots of jealous looks when you take this one to the launch…
