Maybe you could enlighten us with your paddling experience. How much time you've spent in other boats. What kind of other boats. What kind of moves you can do in other boats. How much time you have spent in a Transformer.
My guess would be that someone you like/respect does not like the Transformer and that you yourself have had very little experience with the boat.
Also, typing in all caps on a board like this = shouting. Sometimes shouting is what folks do when they don't have a real good argument.
That said, I hope you enjoy whatever boat you're paddling. I know I usually do.
