Well, put it through the ultimate test. I fished her in the LLM and in 20mph winds, 1-2ft chop. Put a drift sock on her and began floating north with the wind. Extremely stable in the chop. Hardly any rocking with the swells hitting the tail and working towards the nose. Surprisingly, it turns on a dime with a rudder. Only con is it still has the molded in foot rest. That can be a pain in the you know what while steering a rudder. Probably be better with toe controls. Lots of room as I could leave my extra rod in the hull and not up top with me exposed to the salt. Plenty of room for my crate and stuff under the bungee in the tank well. Very quick also as I could hang with my buddy in his T160 07 model. Overall, very satisfied with this yak. Thanks ACK for a great boat;-)
Good boat, smooth though the chop. However, attention to detail needs improvement!
I really like this kayak. I bought this for saltwater trips in Delaware Bay and ocean. Took it out yesterday for the first time and it cuts through the chop really well. Not the fastest kayak in the world but you'll get there. I would suggest getting the rudder, it's great not having to do correcting strokes all the time. I'm a big guy and I stayed fairly dry. Plenty of leg room (I'm 6'3"). I've paddled a lot of different kayaks and am pleased with the layout and hull shape. Initial stability is good. I didn't really push testing the secondary stability but I didn't feel like I was going over during ordinary tasks like reaching behind, etc. AK did a nice job with shipping the kayak and I didn't see a single scratch. They use plenty of bubble wrap, poly sheeting and cardboard so no worries there.
I paddled a perception yak all last year and nothing compares to my new OK Trident. It is very fast, tracks like a champ and for the fist time in a year I stayed dry most of the time. This kayak is very stable, enough so that I can stand in calm water. I took it out in the Houston ship channel on a choppy day and never felt unstable. I paddled almost every angling kayak ACK has and of course I feel this is the best for the money.
