    Very nice kayak, but not perfect

    This is our pros and cons list for the Super Lynx after 4 outings in lake and Class II river. We decided to get a inflatable kayak after 40 years in Old Town and Wenonah canoes. Our preference is still canoeing. However, in spite of hundreds of hours canoeing all kinds of lake conditions, we could not imagine a canoe self-rescue with grandkids on board. So we decided on an inflatable kayak to be 100% safe on a lake with grandkids. We chose a Super Lynx after trying the best Aquaglide and Sea Eagle tandems. Here are our Super Lynx Pros: can't tip or sink it, rugged, light weight, easy to roll up and carry, paddles good on flat water and into moderate headwind, comfortable with AIRE inflatable thwart seats, self bailing, 10 yr warrantee, best materials and components, made in USA for decades, bright/safe colors, pretty, 5 minutes to inflate, AIRE staff knowledgeable and responsive. Cons: hard to paddle a line with 10+ mph side or tail wind, poor paddle control in side currents, AIRE Cheetah and Deluxe kayak seats are not compatible or comfortable with life jackets, not much room to store gear, some paddle drip despite drip rings, some wave splash over side tubes, get occasional wet butt, water gets into (inside) the floor pocket directly thru mesh drains, water also seeps into side tubes thru stitching and zippers, heavy to lift and carry from water until the floor pocket drains out thru mesh drains, not all water drains out of floor pocket and side tubes so AIRE staff told us…

    AIRE Super Lynx Inflatable Kayak

    Aire Super Lynx may be the most versatile craft I've ever come across. Just took ours from Alaska to France for an extensive tour. Seven days of paddling the Dordogne River with all our gear and my wife and I. The river goes from class II on the upper to slow backwater type calm and our Super Lynx never broke stride. We explored castles, caves, and vineyards and then packed it all up and headed south to Cassis, France. Put the skeg in and took to the Mediterranean and exploring the limestone Calanques around Cassis. Tour boats tried their best to swamp us, but even big wakes didn't seem to bother us much. Lightweight (can fly as standard luggage), maneuverable, and strong it is perfect as far as we are concerned. We even take our two 90lbs dogs for paddles at home in Alaska without trouble.
