I don't think it's a secret that everyone on the Wave Sport team is really excited about the new Project X. It's super loose, releases off of the water with ease, loops huge and is surprisingly stable and smooth on end. For a boat that is only 5'11" long I was shocked at how well it cartwheeled, much easier than any other short boat I've paddled. Even though it has more volume than the Project 52 it's easier to initiate cartwheels because of the slicy side wall and more retentive because of the added volume and the way it's distributed. This sliceiness (I'm not sure how to spell that, I think it's just a kayaking word) combined with huge pop, ease of release and looseness make the Project X the ultimate playboat!
Check out this little video of Bryan Kirk cartwheeling the crap out of the Project X 56 on the Gauley. This is a catch on the fly hole and Bryan banged off this ride his first try.
