Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE my kayak! After spending many hours researching, I decided on this kayak. On my first outing with it, I was very disappointed. I was having a terrible time getting it to go straight, while the others in my group were swiftly gliding along. As I reread the reviews, I noticed comments about poor tracking and improper paddle length. The salesman had recommended a 210 based on having me stand next to an upright paddle and my fingers just being able to curl over the top of the paddle. I exchanged my 210 for a 240 - problem solved!!! I couldn't love my kayak more! I have already spent many hours exploring local lakes and rivers with my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT VALUE AND FUN Got these for my wife for her 50th birthday and she loved them. We go out most weekends and it's got me back into fishing and even got her fishing now. In retrospect I'm a big guy and now am considering a larger 12' fishing these are pretty comfortable for recreation but if you plan on being out for the day then look into a more comfortable seat. The seem fairly cheap. Some other reviews mention an issue with tracking but I think it may be the paddlers. With good paddling form these go pretty straight. For better tracking you would typically need a longer yak or a skeg or rudder. The rudders are usually about as much as I paid for these on sale $249. A hard value to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy solution for dry space I just got my Swifty 95 and was trying to figure out where to put things for tomorrows ride. I happen to have a few of these white 2 gallon buckets with lids. I got them at Lowes or Home Depot, in the paint section. These buckets fit perfectly in the hatch of the Swifty. Now, I can use that space as an ice chest or dry space. The lids have holes on the sides so it was easy to make a tether so the lid won't fall in the water. I was happy to learn the Swifty fits inside my Pathfinder so I don't have to deal with struggling to get it up on the roof rack by myself. Impressed with the quality, I'm sure this will last forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded the Rating After spending many hours in this yak, paddling in heavy winds against 2.5 - 3' swells and doing some fishing, have upgraded my previous rating.This thing is rock solid, tracks very well, and drains pretty good. Not the fastest, but super stable.The rod holders are easily got at, the paddle holster is excellent. All in all not a bad boat.BUT, you may want to add some thigh pads as shown in this pic. Cut a foam noodle to length and in half, a couple 1.25" screws and washers.ALSO a big difference... No Limits carbon fiber paddle weighing in at 33oz :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little kayak This is my first kayak, and I've been very pleased with it so far. I don't have a lot of paddling experience, but I've found it very easy to handle, and I can maneuver it with no problem. The only two things I would change are the cargo lid and the seat design. The cargo lid is extremely difficult to remove on land, so I haven't even tried it in the water. It's not really a problem because you can just slide things behind the seat and they are in the same space. The seat is comfortable, but snaps out of it's slots easily and isn't very secure. Again, it;s not really a problem if you don't lean against it too hard. Overall I'm very pleased with it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great kayak bought this kayak for looks, and am happy to report it works as good as it looks. Seat is comfortable and offers back support, and kayak handles well and is easy to manuver on the lake where I use. Love the molded handles for carrying and that offers security when locked on the rack. Built in bungees, rack and bottle holder are nice useful features as well. Doesn't offer dry storage, so you'll need a dry bag, but easy to secure to bungee for easy access while paddling. Love the colorful design that makes it easy to spot from a distance and make it identifiable in sea of kayaks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT SO SWIFTY! I just bought this kayak. My husband bought a fusion brand one. We went out this past weekend and I was soooo disappointed. I had to work ten times harder than my husband because the kayak would not go straight! We were in very calm water and I had such a hard time. It was constantly going to one side or the other. I loved this kayak at first. The seat is extremely comfortable. It is very spacious inside. I loved the handles for carrying it as opposed to other kind that can break. But there is no point in getting this kayak if you plan on kayaking. It says there is a stable hull design but compared to my husbands it is definately not stable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this kayak I bought this model a week or so at Dick's Sporting. Knowing I'd only be going out to bay's or lakes where the water wouldn't be tremendously choppy, I picked the Swifty based on size, price and the cool color options. I got quite a bit more- as it's very sturdy, stable and easy to maneuver. It appears to be well made, yet not too heavy. It's got plenty of space for my supplies and accouterments. I've had it out several times so far and absolutely love it. This would definitely be a good kayak for someone with limited (or no experience) or for those who aren't sure where to start in the land of kayaks.
