I was very impressed with the
moken 14, plenty stable to be
in rough water. I also love the
center hatch that I can throw
all of my go to plastics in. I am
a bigger guy at 5'11 275, it
holds me well with all my gear.
It tracks great without the
rudder but a rudder is a bonus
to have while drift fishing. over
all I love my moken 14. You
wont be disappointed when you
give any feelfree kayak a try.
The boat tracks well and is
fairly fast .. the rear slide
tracks are a little too far back
to be practical.
the front slide mounts are ok
but you have to buy the slide
mounts as there is no mid ship
access to the inside of hull for
mounting anything .
Im a big guy , 6'5" and 290lbs
and the weight capacity is WAY
OFF .... me , two rods , two
mounts with scotty rocket
launchers , fish finder with 8-
AA Batteries , two plano boxes
, two bottles of water and a
PFD should come very close to
100lbs under the 432 lb cap
and yet the footwells and rear
tank well both held water
above the scupper .
The boat is fairly heavy but not
too bad .
The wheel in the keel is nice on
solid ground but the boat
needs to have a well balanced
load or be empty to keep it
This particular craft convinced
me to TRY BEFORE YOU BUY .
I feel that my NW Manta 14 is
a better boat for me .
This was my second kayak
purchase from ACK and their
service is the best in the
Had I been able to try before
the purchase , I would have
passed on the Moken 14 .
2-1/2 Stars for my needs.
I have just swhitched from another brand of kayak to
FeelFree Moken 14. I made the switch for the features it
offers. I like the stability of the kayak.I am able to stand
a fish, also I am impressed with the rigidness of the hull.
It has a fast trax system that allows you to move gear
quickly. Its seat is one of the most comfortable one of its
class,and the room behind the seat allows you many
different options for rigging. FeelFree in a great kayak.
They got it right this model.....very stable.......fast,
fast, fast...........great in the wind........very little wind-
paddle, has a great "feel" to it..... this is my 4th
Moken (10"s & 13') Love the unitrac system, quick to
put on, quicker to take off for traveling....heavy, but
with the wheel in the keel it makes it easy to haul and
load.....I think I will buy another just to have a
different color for each day of the week........love the
purple one!!!!! (bought Desert Camo)!
The probably one of the most under-rated and
overlooked kayaks out there, especially for BTB
fisherman. This kayak is laid out and designed for
offshore fishing. The hull is great for cutting over
and through waves. The kayak is stable and the
cockpit is designed for maximum comfort. The
tankwell has plenty of room for anything you could
possibly want to bring along. Take a long hard look
at this one. You won't be disappointed when you
bring it home.
I have had the boat now for a
few weeks and this is a very
well designed boat. I have only
taken it out a handful of times,
but my initial impression of the
boat is very good. Before this,
I paddled a Tarpon 140, and I
would say this is a lot nicer of
a boat. Hopefully in the very
near future, I will have a
chance to take it out on the
open water and give it a good
