basically water keel and weighted keel. water keels fill up with water when you put them in water for stability.but they wont self right like weighted keels will. and weighted keels are more stable. the only advantage to water keel is there lighter so if your packing a bunch in a long ways its easier on your back. but if your not doing that get weighted keels.
I perfer water keels over weighted for a couple reasons.... the water current does more to add movement in water keels then in weighted ones and for packing in or out, it's simple....the lighter the better. Haven't had any issues with stability at all.
on big water. on chop. water keel sway back and forth bad. at least some of them do. but most walks in are for small water. where you dont need weighted keels. in current my weighted keels have plenty of movement.
