Feelfree Kayaks is taking kayak fishing to a new level in stability, comfort, and versatility with the Lure 10 Kayak. It is ideal for shorter trips on rivers and lakes and has all the features of the Lure 11.5. It comes standard with a variety of unique features including a removable multi-level, multi-position extra wide Gravity Seat, Feelfree's wheel in the keel, and Uni-Track system. The patent pending Feelfree Gravity Seat offers the widest range of seat heights which is adjusted with the simple function of a lever and is removable - the Feelfree Gravity Seat is the new high. The Lure's super-stable 36" wide hull paired with a padded standing platform gives you the option to paddle or cast in either the sitting or standing position whether fishing inland waters or wide open oceans - this kayak fears no water.

Really nice Kayak and an excellent fishing platform. Only two things I can give a less than ideal rating for is the gravity seat and the weight of the vessel. The gravity seat is VERY sketchy operating and I don't recommend sitting on it at any of the supposedly 10 positions other than flush. I can't count how many times I've sat down and the seat disengaged unexpectedly. Also the kayak is VERY heavy and awkward to lift and if you are planning on transporting it via car-top you will need to build up your strength or have a friend assist. The gravity seat will usually fully extend while trying to lift it and this makes it even more difficult. Feel Free needs to completely scrap the gravity seat and offer perhaps a hydraulic seat instead considering the high price point and perhaps consider some lighter weight materials for a 5 star review.
this kayak is horrible. it doesn't track good at all. if your not constantly paddling it will do 360s. its slow and wide and feel like your paddling a bathtub. this is coming from a experienced kayak fisherman whos owned a old town vapor, a tarpon 120, a perception tribe 11.5 and 13.5, a hobie mirage sport. currently i own a slayer 12 and a pa14. for close to the same money go for the slayer, moken 12.5 ,or ride 115
This Feelfree Lure 10 (Camo) is a wonderful kayak. It's easy to load and unload in a small truck. I paddled for 3 miles up Pelahatchie Creek (water low, little current) and then back. It felt a little jittery at first but I quickly got used to it. The Gravity seat is very comfortable but with limited adjustment. Initially i felt like i was sitting too high even with the seat at its lowest point. Seat must be at lowest point or up above notch 6 to 10. This kayak paddles and tracks ok. I knew what I was getting before I ordered this boat. It fits my needs for a short compact kayak. Great for fishing or getting to out of the way hunting spots. I love it! But, my advise is to TRY BEFORE YOU BUY! If you paddle it before you purchase it there would be no need for nasty reviews! I live near Ross Barnett resevoir. I like to paddle and fish Pelahatchie Bay and Pelahatchie Creek. If you see me on the water I will gladly let you try out my kayak to see if you like it! I give this kayak 5 stars because I knew what I needed and was getting. Remer always PADDLE IT BEFORE YOU PURCHASE! Thanks for reading my review!
My Lure 10 arrived well-wrapped, in perfect condition and exactly on schedule three weeks ago. I've had it out over a dozen times, both on a calm river-estuary and in for in-shore fishing close to shore in the open Atlantic. Feel Free has made an absolutely amazing product. I usually fly-fish for stripers and have done so standing up in the Lure 10 with relative ease (it's a matter of gaining confidence in your balance): as many others have noted, this kayak is incredibly stable. Standing is, however, not particularly necessary, since there is more than sufficient casting clearance even before the (super-comfy) seat is raised. I have gone in and out through moderate surf a half-dozen times, and while the kayak will take on a good deal of water launching through waves bigger than 2.5 feet (as one would expect it to), it drains in about 2 minutes through the scuppers as long as you keep paddling. I have kayaked for twenty years in both my small Old Town day-tripper and seventeen- foot Wilderness Systems ocean kayaks, and the Lure tracks just fine. It is comparatively slow and requires some muscle, but that's a price I was happy to pay for a super-stable fishing platform. My only complaint is that the center console-hatch does not lock tight and is certainly "water-resistant" rather than "water-proof"; I gather this is not an issue with the 11.5 and 13.5 models. And an anchor will be a must for me, since the boat does drift easily in tidal currents. But the kayak is a dream come true for this fly-fisherman who wanted to reach the schools of bass just beyond the breakers: Thank you Feel Free for a great product; cheers Austin for the excellent service! (PS: the sub-zero aesthetics ain't bad either.)
