ACK (Austin Kayak)
"I went to the Demo and found my Yak. Left deposit on a Saturday to get the demo discounts and headed back to Dallas. Called ACK Austin Monday and was told they were to busy to speak to me and would call me back....no call back. I called again that late afternoon and told them I wanted to complete my order and get everything shipped... I was asked when I would like to pick it up.... this type of response..."
Vibe Kayaks "Sea Ghost"
"This is definitely the best yak you will find if it fits YOUR fishing requirements. Very comfortable seat, especially in the raised position. Extremely stable, stood up first time out, might want to add a "pull up" strap if you core is out of shape! Very fast in the water, Hook 4 said I was cruising at 3.33 mph ...WOW! The one dislike and not that it is all that bad, is the console could be a little shorter...."
Wilderness Systems "Radar 115"
"This is a great boat for many reasons but it is not without it's flaws, allow me to explain. There are a few things that I wish could have been included with this boat such as some type of rod holder and deck padding which I added myself. Many boats now come standard with some kind of deck padding and at least some flush mounted rod holders. This boat deck is a bit slippery and squeaky without deck padding which..."
Jackson Kayak "Cuda HD"
" Enough time probably has not passed yet to call the original Cuda design a classic, but who cares? To me it is. Jackson has taken this classic Cuda design and given it a facelift. As the kayak fishing industry grows, there's become a greater demand for kayaks designed with stability being a priority. While the original Cuda was a very efficient paddling kayak, only a few anglers felt stable enough to stand in it. Along with other new design elements..."
Bending Branches Angler Pro - Never Look Back
" As a competitive kayak fishing tournament angler I am a big believer in the importance of having a quality paddle while fishing. Other than your kayak and your PFD, it is the next most important piece of equipment you can have on the water. In this Bending Branches Angler Pro Paddle Review I’ll share some thoughts on why this is the ultimate paddle for kayak fishing.My fleet consists of three kayaks (Wilderness Tarpon100, Wilderness Ride115, and Hobie Pro Angler..."

"Beware of website claims of in stock items, customer service blaims it on everything but them. No communication until you check on non shipped items. Won't be back after 3 communications with customer service and no desire to take any responsibility for false data and no communication. Back to Amazon for me! "
