It really all depends on what you want. Myself I would not go with either as they would not last me a full season. LOL. I am really hard on a canoe and the only one that I would ever consider for myself is an oldtown. I currently have an oldtown discovery and it is worth every pennie I paid. Any other canoe would be in the trash heap by now with what I put this thing through. Both fishing and hunting. But it all depends on what you want to do with it. The square stern will give you a bit more drag. So if you are paddling upstream you are going to work a bit harder with the square stern. If you want to put a small motor on, then the square stern is a little more convienient. Between the two I would tent to leany away from the square stern and go with the other. It will be a little more versatile and easier to paddle. And if you want to add a small motor, a motor mount is inexpensive and very easy to make.. Hope this helps.

If you ever want to put a small motor or trolling motor on the back of your canoe get the square back. Personally, I would get the square back.

I agree CT has crap for canoes . I got one a few years back and have had to do work on it every spring . Wished spent a little more and got a good canoe.

I agree. You'd be WAY better off buying a used Old Town for the same price or a little more than CDN Tire crap.

if i could afford it i'd get a 26 or 27 footer with a square back with a 12 horse motor, the only thing I'd probably use it for is salmon fishing.. see them on kijiji for about 3 grand or so..
