careful

decent kayak for the price, but the seat is garbage. Both seat straps broke within 15 short trips on the lake - maybe 10 hours total. BassPro was no help and sent me to Ascend, who then sent me to the manufacturer who was not willing to replace the seat. Be careful. there are better values out there (Wilderness Systems, Perception, etc)

Pros & Cons

Pros:
stable
Cons:
bad seat

Good place to start

This has been my dedicated kayak for the last year. Depending on where you find this Yak it retails for 4-500$ and I think that's a fair price. It tracks well for a 10 foot boat. Its stable enough to enter and exit without too much fuss. Im a young/fit guy but I think it's light enough for most to lift over there head onto a vehicle. It would be no challenge at all to get it on a trailer or truck bed. The seat can come out of the boat and be a good camp chair, you can also adjust the back rest to better suit your comfort. Plenty of storage in the sit-inside kayak. I use it primarily for fishing which it is not designed for but i feel it meets my needs. Obviously it would be a more fluid recreational yak. Great for camping. I plan to get another kayak for fishing but I won't let go of this one easily.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Lightweight for hauling, comfortable seat, durable
Cons:
curved interior bottom can be difficult.
