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.
I have yak fished for about 15 years now and I was not young when I began. My preferred yak is an ancient Prowler 13 angler. Although this yak is not heavy by today's standards it seems to get heavier and more difficult to load as I age. Two days ago I ordered a C-tug kayak cart from ACK after discussing the issue with a sales person on the phone who provided me with a lot of his personal experience with the C-tug. I ordered one immediately and it arrived yesterday. I recommend yakkers to visit youtube and see the instructional video on how to assemble it. Will save you a lot of time the first go around. I did not care much for the factory straps which are a bit of a pain to get right. I especially did not like the latch mechanism as it did not look extremely durable. So, I fabricated my own straps from cinch straps I use to lash my yak in my truck bed. Then for a trial run. I do not know how I ever lived before without this little C-tug. It is nothing short of wonderful and it takes two fingers to guide my mounted yak around to wherever I want it to go on almost any surface encountered. I love this little C-tug. And as always ACK folks are the top of the line for service, advice and more. If you are thinking about getting a yak cart the little C-tug should be at the top of your list. Just order one and you will be very pleased indeed.
This is a great cart. It has never failed me, and the fast disassembly with no tools makes it easy to keep sand off the axles. I just returned from a weekend kayak camping/fishing trip where 5 other kayakers asked to borrow my CTug to get their kayaks back up a steep and rough trail. No one had a problem, and the CTug even made it easy to get two fully loaded Slayer Propels up that trail. This a very good piece of equipment.
