I went to Sweden last week to try the Rockpool Alaw and the Alaw Bach at the Escape Kajakcenter in Göteborg. At that point I didn’t know that the Menai 18 was in production, so I didn’t try it.
Now I have to go back, either to Varberg or Göteborg, to try that out, before deciding whether it’ll be the Alaw Bach or the Menai 18 for me.
