The Sandpiper is a 12' kayak from Eddyline Kayaks that is aimed at people who are looking for a versatile kayak for flatwater conditions. While it is certainly not a bad kayak by any stretch of the imagination, there are better options for the price if you are solely interested in angling. Of course, there is nothing preventing you from using the Sandpiper for angling as it is extremely stable, but it lacks many of the features that hardcore anglers demand.

This sit-inside kayak features a 48" x 22" cockpit area, which gives you plenty of room and makes it easy to get in or out. Eddyline has designed the Sandpiper for recreational use, so the large cockpit can hold just about anything from pets and photography gear to fishing rods and more. It features adjustable foot braces to provide you with support and promote proper paddling posture. For additional comfort, the Sandpiper has padded knee cushioning, a dual-density foam backrest and fully padded seat bottom with thigh support. You can also adjust the forward lean and the height of the seat to your liking. Deck storage is handled by bow and deck bungees while the fused carbonlite front and rear bulkheads handle dry storage.

One of the things that definitely count in the favor of the Sandpiper is its weight. Since it weighs only 38 lbs, it is an absolute breeze to transport on your own. This is also helped by the bow and stern carry handles, which by the way, can both retract to prevent them from banging around while you are paddling. Eddyline used co-extruded ABS laminate for the hull, which gives it the look and performance you would expect from a composite kayak, but also the durability that only plastic can offer. In addition to being lightweight, this choice has resulted in a kayak that is easily maintained and very abrasion resistant.

If angling is just one of the uses you'll have for your kayak, then you won't be disappointed with the Eddyline Sandpiper. However, the lack of angling specific features, such as rod holders, means there are better options available for your money if you are an avid angler.
