Review: I just purchased the Tarpon 100 after a year of being in a box store sit in. What a huge difference. First off , ACK was incredible to do business with. From Start to finish, everything went smoothly. My Tarpon arrived 2 days sooner then planned, and it and all the accessories I had purchased were packed very well and not a scratch on the Yak.The storage on this is great, under both hatches you'll find loops to clip off your bags or whatever, making access very easy, even on the water. The side pockets are great for the most reached for items. The seat is incredible, very adjustable, very dry. My first trip was over 5 hours and I had no issues at all. Once you get use to it, the Tarpon is very stable. I was able to sit side saddle and hang my legs in the water after only an hour out. I can reach everything I have in the rear well area without issue. Leg room was fine, Im 5'11, 220 lbs. It tracks better then a 10' yak should, and gets a fair amount of glide. You are not going to win any races with it, but youll keep up just fine. My better half took it for a lap or two, and now I in the process of ordering another for her. ACK will of course get that business.

Review: I am well pleased with the Wilderness Tarpon 100. The seat is exceptional. The ease of adjustment is superior. Glad I saw one before I purchased.

Review: I've owned several boats in the last few years... The Tarpon 100 is by far the best yet. The kayak is stable, maneuverable and light enough to handle on my own. I can sit off to one side, legs in water while casting. No issues. I've gotten many compliments also on the style and looks of my 100. I really couldn't be happier...

Review: 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.
