This is my first Kayak. I love this tarpon 120. It is very stable. ACK has been very responsive. The kayak arrived as promised. It was well packaged. I caught my first fish yesterday.
I have had this kayak for a couple months now and love it. I mostly fish inshore and some BTB and is handles very well. Its extremly stable and tracks very well. I never feel like im going to flip it even when sitting side saddle hanging of the side. Also, this boat is extremly fast. When im paddeling with others i often times have to stop and wait for the others to catch up. I ordered mine with the rudder option and after being caught in some pretty windy conditions and strong currents i couldnt imagine not having it. Haven't had any problems with water leaking through the hatches and ive had mutiple waves crash over the bow and flood the cotpit and the improvements to the hatches for the 2015 model work. You can stand in this model if the conditions allow. When im on the flats and back in tidal creeks you can paddle around just like your on a paddle board if you have good balance. If your double thinking this kayak just go ahead and get it and after the first time your on the water you will be glad you did.
