What boat do you normally paddle ?

I paddle an ultra SEL gen 1 at the moment. I also have a Zeplin. Previous to that, a Fenn Elite and an Elite SL.
I would say that the V10 feels as stable on the flat and small chop as the Zeplin. It is some sort of witchery.
As it gets rougher the secondary stability isn't as good as the Zeplin, but the primary is amazing.

Really?  Oh man, there aren't any here in Cape Town (actually I don't believe there are any in South Africa at all).  I'd so like to try it.

I would be surprised if a sub intermediate paddler didn't feel comfortable on the flat in the v10.
Boat wakes are as easy as it gets. Confused waters the boat is trickier and is more intermediate plus. If you tend to paddle flatter water, lakes etc and don't mind a small challenge, I suspect a v10 is worth trying over the more bathtub like boats. The seating position is as good as I've sat in. For the conditions and downwinds I paddle, the boat is great. I suspect it may be trickier on a Millers run but we will find out in time I guess. When your mates start selling their stable boats to buy one, that has to mean something.
