I recently had the opportunity to try the Karma M. I was a little surprised with the maneuverability of the boat. Typically I would be suited for the smaller Karma and thought it would feel like a rather large boat. It wasn’t that way at all. The boat handled great and was very maneuverable. I have been paddling the Villian S and found this boat to handle very similar with on difference. I found the Karma to be very easy to start and maintain a ferry angle. Even in faster currant it was easy to cross the eddy line and maintain my angle. With this ease it lends it self to ferrying across a wave with no effort. I’m definitely glad that we had the Med out and will try out the Small but am thinking the Karma M will be my new boat.
