My wife and I and our Yorkie pup demo'ed the 14.5 tandem in Poly at a kayak expo a couple of weeks ago. We were looking for something to replace our "serious" sea kayaks...a venture which did not work out for us. GOOD POINTS: 1. The seats! If you have any sort of lower back issues, or tend to get a sore butt, these are the answer. Nothing I've found in a kayak compares. 2. Maneuverability. I was able to turn this boat with both of us in it with no more effort than I needed for my solo kayak. 3. Tracking. We were out in a pretty stiff breeze, and I had NO trouble holding a heading. 4. Room. There was PLENTY of space in between the seats, and in the front and rear of the boat for coolers, gear, etc. THE DOWNSIDE: Weight. 74 pounds (60 pounds with seats removed) is just too much for the two of us to get the boat up and down from the Yakima rack on top of our Honda Element. We are waiting for the (35 pound hull only) Tegris 14.5 to hit the dealer to evaluate that one.

I purchased the tandem Ultimate 14.5 and I am pleased with it. This is my third kayak. The other two are Wilderness System Tarpon 140s. For fishing I would take the WS Tarpon 140 over this kayak. For taking my 3 year old out for a day I would easily choose this one as the best choice. This kayak is lighter and much faster than the Tarpon 140. I believe the Tarpon 140 is better constructed though. I found the Native to be a bit overpriced for what I got. Having said this I am still satisfied with the boat. I was blown away with the speed ack shipped the boat to me.

Love it! Very stable, tracks well, racks easily and great comfortable seating. Plenty of room for two paddlers and plenty of gear. Lots of great accessories available from Native to outfit the kayak to your personal preference.

Easy to load and unload from the back of my pickup with a bed extender. Slices through the water against a 10 mph headwind. Nicely stable.
