Just got mine about a week ago. I love it! The kayak is an excellent compromise of weight and comfort. Not as comfortable as my Old Town Predator MX, BUT at 52 lbs. compared to almost 100 lbs on the Predator MX I will take this one all day long! Love the slide-trax for accessorizing, love the open concept, and most of all I love the sliding seat platform. In other kayaks with a camp chair style seat I had problems with the seat flipping up during transport unless I put a bungee cord over it to keep it secured. Before I load it in the truck I simply slide the seat platform all the way forward, lay the backrest down flat behind it, and slide it back so the seat back sits under the cross-brace behind the seat. Works perfect! The only thing I wish the kayak had for the money was side handles. I have mine equipped with a Panfish camera pole with a GoPro, Zooka Tube rodholder on a 1.5" screwball, and Native cam-lock paddle holders (I highly recommend these paddle holders) Pros: Lightweight, comfortable seat, 2 position seating, ergonomic footrests, slidetrax rails are awesome! Cons: Optional front hatch cover fitment, lack of side grab handles..

I have had 9 different Kayaks in the past 15 years and in my garage today there are 2. Both are {Native} and the newest is the FX12. When my girl friend came over to look at it she also fell in love with it! she asked why I didn't buy the 2 man? The reason is because I would be doing all the paddling and she would be drinking ALL the beer. The FX is a beauty and a real fishing machine. I'm 65 and can man handle this unit very easy to the rack on my truck.Thank you ACK and Native . Dennis Jaworski Las Vega Nevada

Q: I have noticed that the hidden oak main color is sand instad of the Olive blend. If you happened to have An Olive blend hidden oak color available please let me know
A: Hidden Oak, is the combination of several colors. The shading can be different from one kayak to another due to the molding and dying process.
