Mine's the 9' Colorado XT. The wheel is a must for anyplace you can't drive to the water, bags seem to be decent quality (think mine is 4 yrs old and I've never had a leak, knock on wood). Frame isn't really a perfect fit and takes some work to assemble but it's not a big deal. I like the padded seat, too.
It's a pretty stable rig- I stand on the seat and sight fish although I wouldn't recommend anyone else do it
Let me know when you get something and I'll try to join you for the maiden voyage. Haven't had mine out yet this year.
