Cart was easy to put together and works as designed. Larger style tires make it work better. It is so much easier to move my kayak with the Malone Xpress Scupper Kayak Cart.
I've got a love-hate thing going on with this cart. On the plus side, it's priced right, built very sturdey, lightweight and breaks down easily to stow in the hatch of my Tarpon120 with ease. Once installed it works very well! On the down side, (and I'm guessing this is true of all scupper carts) , it's a process to install coming off the water after a day of fishing. Read: drag yak up beach, empty EVERYTHING off, then flip the yak on it's side , install the cart and then reverse procedure. I'm thinking of adding a kick stand on it so I might be able to just lift the yak on /off if I can line up the cart posts and scuppers. If that doesn't work, I may switch to an end style cart that doesn't make me flip the cart to install it.
I have the Feel Free Lure 11.5 (yes, it has the "wheel in the keel", but it doesn't work well for dragging the yak across a long stretch of sand or turf. My friends have a strap on but it tends to go all over the place in the sand. This is perfect. However, since I carry a lot of "stuff", you definitely need help getting it into the scupper holes. Tipping it to one side is not an option. Maybe a kickstand would help. Since the tubes that go into the scupper holes are relatively small compared to the holes, I sleeved a small piece of PVC over the tubes and taped them on. I was also a little concerned about the metal on the plastic scupper hole so I figured I would soften that connection. So far it works well.
The Malone Xpress Scupper Kayak Cart I ordered was delivered within the time-frame promised. Assembly was easy as per the instructions. I have used the cart twice since purchase and find it evergthing expected.
