Wilderness Systems Kayak I love this kayak. It's the fourth kayak I've owned and I love the 10.5 foot length, the ease of handling in and out of the water, the easy foot pedal arms, the easy use of the skeg,and the easy entry into the storage areas. The boat tracts straight even with rogher conditions. Okay with wind and white caps. Would buy it again.

My only complaint, actually a whish. I whish they made a twelve footer with a bow hatch like the stern. Just had my aspire 105 up on the lake section of the Allagash Wilderness waterway in Maine, in the first two weeks of June 2016. Had a least one storm every 24 hours wind and waves on the lakes was choppy to say the least, a 12 footer would have been a bit smoother ride. Having said that the 105 preformed very well, much faster than one would expect, with skeg down straight as an arrow and does well even when skeg gets stuck. Yes a gravel beach will jam it. Run a knife along the sides and it cleans right out. The seat, five star no problems, and you would not believe how much gear you can fit in this kayak. I had originally planned a 14 day trip allowing for some down time and fishing and was carrying more gear than needed because the weather forecast was shaky at best, cut the trip short after 8 days at Churchill Dam weather forecast was heading down hill for the next week, more rain and lower temps. Plan on returning in mid September to finish the trip. the only failure on the aspire was a loose screw on the rear handle, easy fix. As for stability impressive to say the least.
