I bought my hypercarbon K1 single from Pocock this year. I have always found that Pocock 1x's are make sculling easier than in some other boats. In college I raced a hudson, but trained in a Pocock over the summers. I've been wanting one of these for the past 10 years and finally was able to afford it. I strongly recommend them!!
I understand that Pocock makes most of their money on selling the large boats, so that is where their advertising is primarily focused. But that doesn't mean their singles are any less awesome.
