Product Description and Specs

The new Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 kayak delivers improved speed, better glide, and even more storage than its smaller counterparts.

This well rounded sit-on-top is capable of adapting to a variety of water conditions by combining small kayak maneuverability with large kayak speed.

• New Phase 3 AirPro Seating System and adjustable footpegs offer a comfortable and customizable fit
• SlideTrax accessory rail, bungee paddle holders, and molded mesh gear pockets
• Two turn and lock 8 inch round hinged Orbix hatch covers for dry storage
• Quicker than the smaller boats in the Tarpon family but yet still maneuverable

Kayak is highly visable in the water and remarkably fast. Though a bit difficult to handle on rivers, it is unbeatable on lakes. Handles swells easily and is a lot of fun. Difficult for one person to carry very far, but easy for two.

Kayak has been great, I was lead to believe the rod holders would have come with the package being called the Tarpon 140. I would only assume it was a fishing package kayak????

This configuration of the Tarpon 140 does not come with rod holders. Item #1088, Tarpon 140 ACK Angler Package includes rod holders.

After reading a lot of reviews and paddling 15 different kayaks on a demo day, I decided on the Tarpon 140. I also liked the tarpon 120 and probably would have been happy with that one too if I had purchased it. I use my new 140 on a large lake with relatively calm waters except for the wakes from boat traffic. This kayak is stable, tracks straight, and is relatively quick. The phase 3 seat is extremely comfortable for those long paddles. I'm 6'1, 200 lbs and relatively strong. You will need either a cart to wheel this kayak around or another person to help you get it to the water. It is heavy and difficult to handle by myself. But once on the water, it is terrific and I am glad I purchased it. ACK was great to work with they helped me select a paddle and pfd. Get a good paddle!

Tarpon 140 with Rudder kit. Excellent kayak. The rudder makes a great difference. I use it on the St, Johns River. It is connected to the ocean, So it can get quite rough. This kayak goes straight. It handles quite well no matter how rough it gets.
