"I shopped kayak trailers and decided on a Malone Microsport. Outdoorplay had the best price and free shipping, so that was a no-brainer. I ordered a the trailer online and had it (in six boxes) in about a week. The only thing wrong with the order (which was shipped directly from Malone) was that it had an extra spare tire and was missing two of the four sets of J-hooks that I ordered with the trailer. I called customer..."

"The worst delivery experience I've ever had online from any company! They would not work with me to schedule a day to be here and now it's going to be one month from ordering to get my kayak!! Why do they continue this horrible service? "

"Although I have done quite a bit of canoeing and kayaking, this is actually the first one that I have actually purchased, after doing a lot of research. And I couldn't be happier with my choice!

So what I was looking for was something STABLE..."

"I placed an order for $70 worth of various kayak setup accessories on March 11. Discover card transaction went through and I got email confirmation of the order.

"I bought a Nucanoe Frontier in 2012 - it was sold by a dealer that was new to the area, and I believe we were one of the earlier customers in the St. Petersburg Florida area to buy one. We loved the boat, and it served as a fantastic tender to our Sailboat – also so stable that our large dog got almost daily rides in it. Why the low rating? After several years we noticed..."

"Ordered several items including a Feelfree Lure 11.5 with Overdrive Pedal Drive. After waiting over one month the order finally arrived but the Pedal Drive was missing. NO SMALL ISSUE SINCE THIS IS NEARLY HALF OF THE KAYAK COST. ( My 13.5 Feelfree Lure was $1000.00 less) . After holding with customer service for 6 minutes "Zack" cam on the line. I explained the my entire order arrived in excellent condition but the Pedal Drive was missing. After some discussion..."
