Renegade XT: Good and Bad

First off; I received the kayak and was a little annoyed to find the inside of the hull was filled with plastic shavings and hole saw plugs from where the the rod holders and storage hatch were drilled out. It appears that they forgot to vacuum the inside out.

Took it out bass fishing and was very pleased with the results. Kayak is very stable. Storage room is more than ample. Was able to move with stealth within the lily pads on the lake I was at. Caught a decent amount of fish.

Next I took it out with a buddy on a river run. Difficult to track straight in fast waters and too slow to keep up with my buddy, who was in a river runner, but that's to be expected. However, the stability is excellent. Had to do a couple of lift overs and was able to get in and out with ease.

Overall a good canoe. Extremely stable. Plenty of storage and very comfortable. Highly recommend as an affordable angling kayak but not as a creek runner.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Stable, The price is right
Cons:
Slow, and the fit and finish isn't there
