Wish they still offered them

I researched fishing kayaks for almost 6 months before settling on this model and I couldn't be more pleased. Love the open cockpit design! I bought two, one for me and one for my son. We use them to fish mostly ponds, reservoirs and small lakes but we've gotten them out on slow moving rivers as well with no issues.

We picked up some of the side mount rod holders from BPS and they fit perfectly on the inside lip for the dash. BAM! For less than the amount of sales tax now they're fully set up for fishing.

Compare this to other brands that run $700.00 or more.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Ease of use, Value for money, Well made/Durable, Quality
Cons:
They don't make it any more
