The key to using the C-Tug is to watch the videos, how to put it together and how to use the straps. I put my Jackson Big Tuna on the C-Tug and it hauls the 14ft, 90-110lb kayak with no problem. I've pulled it through grass, dirt, wet and dry sand, even into the water to launch. A must have accessory for any kayak angler or someone going out solo.
Austin Kayak customer service is as always...top notch. This cart is robust and I feel will hold up well. It tracks easily and I have tested it out by jumping it over curbs....rocks and so on. The instructions for how to strap to the kayak have been upgraded on a video....one needs to watch the video or you will not be able to tighten the straps enough to keep kayak on the cart. While this cart will probably work out OK for me it does not really fit the hull of the new Big Game Prowler II. I had a friend who offered to let me try his C- Tug cart to make sure it fit. I wish I had tried it first. This is a good cart but one does need to make sure it fits the hull of the kayak you own.
This cart works awesome. I think you have to watch the installation video. There are some complaints on this cart, mostly about the straps. If you install the straps as laid out in the video they won't slip. I have two of them and neither one slips. It is really neat the way they come apart and easy to put together. We have only used the carts a few times but I would highly recommend the cart. I wouldn't recommend any of the other scupper carts as with all the bouncing and vibration induced during towing it would enlarge or gouge out the scuppers enough to make it tough for a scupper plug to seal up.
I'm really impressed with the design, construction and material of thus cart. Unfortunately it is too low. I have a 16 foot low volume sea kayak and even though I am only 5'3" when I hold either end the other end hits the ground.
