Beavertail Phantom sneak boat

Hey guys,
Anyone have any experience with or comments about this duck boat?

I’m considering a lightweight hunting kayak.
Looking for opinions on this, or other models you have used—pro and cons.?
Any help would be appreciated.
I already have a 14’ Sportspal Canoe , that I use as my duck boat, and am satisfied with it, but want something lighter and more nimble for backwater solo hunts or floating creeks.
Thank you!!

I say go for it. But its a little small. I use the stealth 1200 and love it. If its as stable as the 1200 youll be good to go. Ive used a kayak for solo hunts but have never felt stable enough for November cold water. Its easy to get swamped in a little boat but Beavertail is making a solid safe product to prevent it. Im definitely considering the phantom also.

Watch your top knot.

Looks like a petty good boat. Winter I'd want all the stability I can get. I don't do winter boat, kayak duck hunts after I almost met my demise on the Cuyahoga river in Ohio

Thanks!
Some others I’ve considered are
Creek Boats M-98
And Auquapods But neither have any local dealers, and shipping one would be ridiculously expensive.
I’ve been doing a lot of online research.
