I got this kayak mainly for the ease of transporting. I am 6'1" and 200 lbs. This kayak is light and carries my weight with equipment very well. This kayak is fast and tracks straight to be only 10 foot. The water has not entered past the scuppers yet and even if it does, the seat is above the floor so I should not get wet. Seat is comfortable. I got the dusk color and it looks very good. I had a couple of issues and I have to give the customer service from ACK credit. They respond immediately. The front orbix hatch would not close properly. Wilderness Systems finally sent a replacement hatch. The main negative I see with this kayak is the orbix hatches. I always spray my boat out and quite a bit of water would always enter the hull through the hatches. I assume if caught out in a rain storm or if a wave comes over the boat, water will enter the hull. I have added silicone to see if that will help with the hatch leaks. Overall I am pleased with the kayak even with the hatch issues.

Bought this kayak after a lot of research. This is a great kayak for all the features, and especially the most comfortable seat with plenty of options for back and leg support. Only reason for 3 stars is, I would caution any bigger person to look for a larger boat, I am 6'2" and 210lbs, I would go for a wider boat as I tipped my first two times in semi rough water (12 inch wind swells on a lake). I have only used 3 times so far, and will update once I get back into the water after the winter is over. Maybe its the fact that I am used to a lower center of gravity in a sit in kayak). Just wanted larger paddlers to be informed.

Great kayak! Tracks smoothly in the water and just perfect for solo fishing. Austin Kayak does a great job setting up the package and their customer service is second to none. Highly recommended!!!

Q: Is the Tarpon just as good as the Ride series for stand up fishing as well?
A: The Ride will be a bit more stable because it is wider. The Tarpon 100 will be a little wobbly, but is possible to stand and cast from.

Both have efficient angler models. The Ride series will be a bit bigger and be able to hold more gear and weight than the Tarpon series. If you are traveling light and want speed go with the Tarpon. If not, the Ride series is what you want
