I have been thinking of getting a kayak for a while now and finally went ahead and bought one. First of all the price was excellent and the shipping was very fast and free. Took the kayak out for the first time and being a beginner I don't have anything to compare it to but I will say it works great. I was looking for kind of a leisure kayak for paddling on some of the smaller lakes around but also wanted one that could go down the bigger streams in the area and this one works really good for that. Very happy with my purchase and look forward to using it more and more.
I have read where people say this kayak isn't fast. Nope, it's not a touring kayak. It's a recreational yak. And it's not hard at all to maintain speeds of 3mph. Then again, I don't compare a Jeep Wrangler to a Dodge Viper. This kayak does what it is suppose to do- which is not cover 30 miles in one day. It is very stable, has a huge cockpit with skirt availability, and plenty of storage area. While it is not going to set any speed records, it is also not a bobber in the water. It's fast enough for what it's designed for. The seat, does leave a little to be desired as far as comfort goes. That is easily fixed by adding additional padding. I have a an SOT and I put my removable Seals seat right on top of the vapor seat and it works like a charm. Overall a great kayak that will give you years of service....
