|Review:||Very nice kayaks. The things are solid as could be! Very stable and easy to handle. Great to fish from! However, I'm not convinced Wilderness Systems has it together in the details though... I bought two Ride 115's and had a minor problem with each. On one, the seat retaining clip in the cockpit was never installed at the factory. (ACK had that taken care of next day air - way to go boys!) I still had to install it myself, though. The other kayak has a rip in the seam of the seat back cover (from the factory, not shipping) and ACK handed that issue of to Wilderness Systems and I've been waiting almost a month so far for them to send me a replacement seat cover! My wife and I love these kayaks and would buy them again, but you know the saying - the devil's in the details! I wish they'd upgrade their quality controll or final inspections or whatever the problem they have is! If you're shelling out about $1000.00 a pop for these kayaks, while the economy's in the crapper - Wildy could at least send you a completely finished boat!|
|Review:||Moved up from a sit-in. Great fishing platform: very stable and comfortable with plenty of room for gear. Also quite maneuverable-perfect for the rivers I paddle and fish. A bit heavy but a cart resolves that issue. Had it out many times already for day and multi-day adventures and no regrets. ACK a real pleasure to do business with.|
|Review:||I really enjoy my Wilderness Systems Ride 115 Kayak. It lives up to all the reviews and it is really stable on the water. You can stand up and paddle with confidence. I use mine for spearfishing and abalone diving on the coast of Northern California, as well as bass fishing in Lake Oroville.|
|Review:||Just got my Ride last month and took it on the Bowron lakes circuit this month. While it wasnt as fast as the other ocean kayaks in the group, the convienance of the sit on top and the stability made it work great. It is a bit heavy, so the portages were a pain, but it had enough room for all my gear underneath and in the well. The rod holders were great, and I caught several lake trout on the trip as well as rainbows and kokanee. The Ride even handled the big swells when a storm kicked up on Isaac lake. Looking forward to floating the rivers now in the new Ride.|
