This is the third tarpon 120 that I have purchased from ACK in the last 4 years. ACK prices and customer service are outstanding and everybody loves these kayaks! Seat comfort, gear storage, versatility and additional features are perfect, and the improved footpegs on the 2015 are a nice improvement. Knowledgeable and helpful staff have been great when questions arise and as I purchased additional items.

I have only used the 2015 Tarpon 120 for 3 or 4 outings so far, but it's a great yak. It has more speed and much better tracking than my old Tarpon 100. Compared to my fathers Ride 115 (also 2015), the Tarpon 120 still tracks considerably better and is slightly faster. The Tarpon 120 is stable enough to sit side saddle comfortably and with practice you can even stand up to look for structure under water that might hold bass. Fishing while standing is a different story though...The in hull storage seems more than sufficient and easy to use, but a 230 cm spare paddle (in halves) won't fit inside the bow hatch if you were wondering. My 230 cm paddle fits well in the tank well though. Overall this is a great yak of all trades. If you fish both rivers and lakes the Tarpon 120 is excellent.

Q: The new Tarpon (2016) 120 comes with a XL Keeper Foot brace. Because of its extra length, the foot brace rail rubs against my leg. Can a shorter rail (i believe prior years used a shorter 15" rail) be installed without impacting warranty? Thank You
Yes, a shorter rail can be installed without impacting the warranty.

Q: Are there any changes in the seating area of the boat..for example: Is the seating area slightly more reclined than in 2014? Thanks!
A: The seating area is the same mold on the Tarpon series for 2014 and 2015.
