The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 is the most popular Tarpon ever. The Tarpon 120 is a versatile sit-on-top that offers stunning performance for surf play, ponds, lakes, and bays. The new Phase 3 AirPro seating system, New for 2013, adds comfort and easy adjustability. An exceptionally large rear bungee tankwell allows for storage of any gear needed for long hauls while the two hatches provide dry storage below the deck. The Tarpon 120 kayak is known for offering excellent glide and maneuverability, and great versatility for its trim size.

|Review:||I ordered this from ACK and received it in just 3 days! Their customer services is unbelievable. It doesn't get any better. They also had about the lowest price I could find. Add in $19 shipping to a commercial address and you really get a lot of bang for your buck. This kayak tracks well and is relatively fast. It is also very stable. The seat is really comfortable with all the adjustment options. I have had no problem sitting in it for 7+ hours at a time. The storage hatches feel well made and sturdy. They're not completely waterproof, but do keep water from splashes or paddle drip from getting inside the hull. It is also relatively light. It's balanced very well and the comfortable handles make it easy to carry, even by yourself. Rigging this kayak for fishing is really easy. I opted for the plain kayak so I could outfit it myself (I'm not a fan of the recessed rod holders). Scotty 344 flush mounts fit nicely behind the seat and Scotty 244 flush deck mounts fit the center console. The center point for mounting the 344 is marked on the hull by a small molded-in star. Using this star and a hole saw makes install rod holders really quick and easy. The hull is also thick and sturdy enough to support the stress from a rod holder with bolts or rivots. The slidetrax system is really handy and easy to use and there are plenty of places to mount rod holders. I made a backplate for the rear mounts, but intend on using them with Scotty outriggers in the future. It's probably not necessary, but I like a little bit of extra strength. The tank well is big enough for a milk crate and a cooler with some space left over. Add in the storage hatch up front and the center hatch and you've got plenty of storage for your gear. I usually keep a small tackle box and tools in the center hatch for easy access. The only thing that I might consider negative, is that the scupper plugs are not included with the kayak. You can order them from ACK for $8 a pair though. It's not really a big deal as this kayak is a dry ride and foam practice golf balls do the trick. Overall a very nice kayak that is very comfortable and very capable of fishing or just paddling around.|
|Review:||Sold my old kayak and went with a Tarpon 120. Have been out twice already and absolutely love it! Very comfortable, moves through the water with ease and so many options for adding accessories. Already have my fishfinder mounted using a RAM mount. Arrived from ACK on time and well protected. Couldn't be happier! Thanks ACK!|
|Review:||Foolishly sold my first tarpon 120 due to lack of use. Second tarpon 120 used for sailing w/rudder. What a blast!!!|
