Bought mine in July 2012 and have had it out on the water a dozen time or more. The real test was a 3 night trip down the Sabine River. Packed it full of gear, ice chests, tent, etc.It was still very stable - I was concerned that I would mess with the center of gravity but it was a solid platform. It gets a 5 star from me. Hope I don't wear it out too soon.
To be honest the kayak is fine however it arrived dirty and scratched with parts in the bottom for which there was no explanation. The kayak has a scratch down one side and another by where the rudder was installed. The anchor kit was shipped loose and the anchor tore up the bag in shipment. I believe this is ACK's version of the Wilderness Systems 120 Angler as the parts are different from the original that I saw in a store.
I just got this yak delivered today. Words can not describe the awesome! Very fast for a SOT,and I love the lay out for fishing! ACK is a great company with fantastic prices, customer service, and shipping! Well, the shipping was Estes, but ACK wrapped it up nice! haha. Highly recommended for a fisherman/adventurer! Its a great "jack of all trades" boat!
Very satisfied with product. Took fishing on Virginia's Shenandoah River the first week I had it. It proved itself as a winner. Two members on the trip are now purchasing the same kayak.
