EDDY-Gear Stingray XL Kayak with its extra wide hull offers unmatched stability for anglers. From flat water, too ocean surf, too small water, the Stingray XL has all the features anglers demand like extra rod holders, ex-large rear tank well, foot controlled rudder system, easy to reach front and rear hatches, and a center console for additional storage with a lid to mount additional equipment. The Stingray XL track extremely well, is very stable, and with the included rudder, you will save energy on long paddles, windy days or in strong currents. A great stable kayak for avid fishing or recreational use.

Cheap kayak not built to last

I picked up this boat from a dealer in Florida and was sold on the price and feature set. The price seemed too good to be true but strapped for cash, I figured it was the cheapest way for me to get on te water. Unfortunately i learned the hard way that soemtimes it's better to save up for something better instead of getting on the water cheaply. The rudder needed modifiying since the blade don't really touch the water much. I also had problems with handles breaking and Eddy Gear wouldn't do anything about it. Said that wasn't part of the warranty. I've also noticed a lot of oyster rash already but deep gouges not the surface scratches i got on my old kayak. I don't really expect this kayak to make it through the next season. Oh well. Chaulking this one up life lessons.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
good price
Cons:
parts break easy, rudder don't really touch the water much, plastic wears out quick
