Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT SIT ON TOP KAYAK This is a nicely priced, stable, sit on top kayak. It tracks well so works great for flatwater or whitewater kayaking and carrying heavy items such as firewood and camping gear. It is heavier than most kayaks and very difficult for a single lightweight person to carry. I usually kayak with another person or a group of people so I had to create some handles with pvc pipe and cord to make carrying easier. The moulded handles make it difficult to carry also the storage compartment is not very tight so do not store anything valuable. It's great for storing your knife or snacks. Overall, I'm happy with my sit on top kayak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very stable kayak Bought this for my wife. We had thinner, cheaper kayaks before, but decided we needed to upgrade since we have become more adventurous. She loves the molded handles and all the bungees. She also really likes the catbag compartment right in front of the seat, very convenient. The seat is a bit uncomfortable after a while, especially since her PFD doesn't cover her back that far down, but we remedy that with a seat upgrade. She also had me add a paddle rest on the side, which it did not come with. Other than the few upgrades, it really is an awesome kayak. Very stable, and very fast. Tracks very well! Not ideal for fishing, though it does have molded rod holders which we use for her bimini. Awesome kayak, well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Yak, very roomy and stable!!! This is my second kayak, and I love everything abut it. The molded seat is very comfortable, my first trip out on it was over 4hrs with no back pain. The molded grips are great, never have to worry about straps breaking when pulling it out of the water. I have taken it on the lake and the Yellow river in Georgia, over some class 1 and 2 with no worries, in fact I feel so stable in this yak that I look for the biggest drops when I'm out on the river. I tipped myself out one time just to see how easy it is to get back into in deep water, I got back in on the first try. Buy this kayak if you are looking for a great S.O.T.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Regrets!!! I did a lot of online research and in store searches for kayaks. After reading numerous reviews and two trips to Dick's to sit in it, I bought this model one year ago. I still LOVE it. Being my first kayak I was very nervous about tipping over, but in this that fear is gone completely. I love the fact that the rod holders and foot grooves are molded in. Even though this is a bulkier style, it is surprisingly very light weight. My boyfriend purchased a Field & Stream which he enjoys but he has taken mine out a few times and enjoys it too. One of the best investments I have made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value My boyfriend was researching kayaks for fishing inshore/rivers without breaking the bank. He wound up purchasing this one and instantly loved it. After I tested his out in the pool, I loved it so much I decided to get myself one as well. It is extremely stable. I sat on the edge of it with my feet in the water and did not tip over. We went out off the Sebastian River and despite a current and wake from boats, we never felt unstable. There is plenty of room for storage and a dry bag which really works. We mounted fishing pole holders on them, which was an easy install as well. It sits high up off the water and keeps you dry (save water from the paddles). I highly recommend this one, for the price-there's really nothing else that compares.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Killer but no leg room . It is awesome in all ways beside 2 ,, Right where you see the handles on this boat is way to tight for me and i'm 6 ft 207 pnds . it is way to closed in for my upper legs and the seat is a little odd shaped for me . But its my wife's and it works great for her . Tracks strait and very stable . Just way to uncomfortable for me . I own the Pescador 13ft and its roomy . Recommend it for smaller people .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handles the ocean waves pretty well My fiancé and I both own this kayak. We went out open ocean kayaking and the water started out calm and flat. We paddled out about 3 hours. It started to get windy so we headed back toward shore. Well what was calm water turned into 3-4 foot swells, sometimes hitting us from two directions at once. I was terrified. We had to fight these waves for two hours. These kayaks held up so well. It was like a storm. I was amazed. We was fighting the current/waves/wind. We made it to shore just As it got dark. I would have given 5 stars but I wish it held more than 300 lbs. with gear/anchors and yourself the weight adds up fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bravo!!! I was saving my money to buy a Jackson. So glad I didn't! Not that they're not great kayaks, because they are, however this kayak is just as great, in my opinion, at a fraction of the price! Comfortable seating and extremely smooth riding! I love to hang my legs off in the water and throw water upon my arms when it's hot. This kayak is the perfect height for this. This is the best kayak Dicks sells, or any other big sporting goods store. Oh, and another pro, the mold is one solid piece! Bravo, bravo, bravo! Buy will NOT be disappointed!
