Review: 350 lbs person so I was limited to the number of boats I could choose from. The ride 135 handled better then the OK Big Game. Great seat and did not need a ton of after purchase accessories to buy. Outstanding boat.

Review: I purchased this Kayak over a month ago. I fell in love with the Wilderness Systems WS company when I started looking at their products at a local EMS store, but the store just didnt have the options I wanted. Furthermore, the instock WS kayaks just didnt seem to have enough cockpit size for a 64 230 lb guy. I then discovered the Ride 135, which solved this problem with a top notch seat and the ability to slide it back and forth. Actually, I think an 8 ft person could fit in this monster. ACK provided the package that I wanted at a very reasonable price with free S&H. The shipment arrived quickly and without any issues. My opinion on the kayak is still high but I warn people to truly consider how big they want their kayak. WS/ACK sells slightly shorter ones with the same features. Just shy of 14 feet width is above average too is bigger than you might think and it makes it very difficult to get off an SUV, even if you have the right equipment. It really is a two person job every time you load and unload it. Additionally, remember that this is an angler model and can be used as a touring kayak. This means that it is definately not the fastest or even close to the fastest kayak you can buy. If you dont plan on using this for exactly that than you will be disapointed. These two things are the only negatives I have with the purchase and these have nothing to do with the intended design or anything that ACK has done.

Review: I purchased the Ride 135 Angler edition and was excited to get out on the water with it. Within the first ½ hour fishing out of it I was not impressed at all. Its does not have a lot of room & the storage compartments are not sealed off from the kayak. Your gear you store in them ends up all inside your kayak and you have tip it up and down to get it out. Then the claim that the ride makes it easy to stand up and fish… it is not easy at all. I have let friends that have great balance try it and they say noooo way. My buddy bought the Ocean Kayak Big Game and it is wider and more stable. If you’re looking to invest in a fishing kayak this is not the one to pick. I am already looking to get something else and I fished in it 2 times so far! Wilderness Systems let me down big time!

Review: I like the ride a lot, truly very stable. I am a big boy - 270 pounds 6'2". I never kayaked before and I appreciated how stable this kayak is since at the end of a day I was tired kayaking and if needed to portage would drop myself into the kayak after the portage and it never flipped. It is heavy and once loaded with gear you will need help to move it around. Same for loading it up on a lexus rx-350. Not impossible but definitely an extra set of hands helps. This is not the fsatest kayak. But for the wide beam and open deck you can have very leasurely paddling days ahead.I mainly paddled on the Wisconsin, Illinois, Mississippi and Kishwaukee rivers last summer. The seat can pop loose if you drop suddenly into the boat like I did. The wide beam was really good for stability while crossing the Mississippi from Illinois to Iowa. You do not want to tip in a commercial channel. For the ladies I would recommend the Tarpon 120 as it weighs less has a wide beam and less wieldy due its shorter length. But for the big boys it has plenty of room - not claustrophobic at all. Plus plenty of storage for carrying overnight camping gear including a stool tent, sleeping bag, just an excellent value. The hull takes on rocky river edges eases without having a hole gauged out as if you had a fiberglass bottom. Would really reccomend paddle boy wheels to portage - they fit in one of the hatches too for when you need it later. haven't fished in it yet but seeing its so stable I am sure it will be fine. Again biggest drawback is its weight - if a second set of hands available to load then it should be ok.For safety purposes a big yellow ride is stable, maneuverable, easily seen, can take some cargo and a beating and is fun and safe. The rudder helped a lot in fast water.Steering was responsive with rudder - I really reccomend the rudder - flips up and down -works fine.Not as wet as I thought it would be. I plugged all the scuppers every time and was hardly ever wet. The seat remained dry for the most part. A handheld pump can get any water out witha few pumps. It is a good all around kayak for leisurely paddles down rivers and lakes.
