I was looking for something more whitewater capable than my
Tarpon 120, so I was delighted when I read about the 'hybrid'
Remix XP10. I received it Tuesday, and took it out for a 11 mile
float at the annual "Tour de Coal" here in West Virginia. The Coal
River is definitely lazy, so I was paddling quite a bit. The XP10 did
pretty well. With the skeg down, it tracked decently, though not as
good as the 2' longer Tarpon. With the skeg up, it was like doing
donuts in your dad's Nova. LOL My ONLY complaint is it is hard on
the back. I didn't want to do all 11 mile sitting aggressively upright
and paddling my brains out. At times, I wanted to just lean back
and enjoy the shade and/or scenery. Not really comfy in the XP10.
But I'll be ordering the high seat back today.....and I agree, for a
kayak that touts itself as being a crossover, you'd think LL would
include that with the 'yak. Still....4 solid stars!
First kayak purchase. Excellent website and customer service
throughout. Delivery went very smoothly to AZ. Overall very happy
with ACK and kayaks.
First kayak ever. Looked at local shops and big box stores before
deciding on this model based off of reviews and youtube videos. Only
had it out once so far. Did great on the flatwater with the skeg down.
Really comfortable cockpit. 5'-10" 200lbs.
I love this kayak. Spins on a dime with the skeg up and tracks like a
ballistic missle with the skeg down. I can't wait to hit some real rapids
with this beauty. Plenty of room for expedition gear as long as you
know what to bring and how to pack it.
I've had my XP10 for over a
year and love it. The skeg is
great for flat water and I've
had it numerous times in class
III whitewater. I broke off the
skeg in some rocky whitewater
but it was my bad because I
forgot to retract it before
taking on the rapids. No
problem though, I ordered a
replacement (and a spare)
from ACK and it took me about
30 minutes to install. I find it
very stable and I've packed it
down with gear and still had
room for my 6 ft 190lbs.
Liquidlogic remix xp 9
I'm 5'10" 175 and the xp 9 fits
perfectly. I love the skeg
feature for flatwater and the
quality is higher than the
I added the high back seat
option for touring. My second
trip was on the Rogue river
through class 3 and the boat
was very stable and confidence
inspiring. A better latch for the
hatch would be nice, otherwise
its perfect as a WW- SUV
Did some research and looked at numerous kayaks before
getting the XP10 sight unseen - none were available to check
out where I live. Primarily wanted a maneuverable boat for
doing photography in shallow inlets and easy down-river trips.
Have been out 6 times and very pleased with the boat. I am
5'8" / 150 lb woman and the cockpit is very comfortable
compared to my sea kayak. Haven't had it in any whitewater
but ran into some heavy chop and rollers during
rain/windstorm on large lake. Kayak has good speed, is very
stable and tracks well with the skeg. The only drawback for
me is the weight - I have to use the Thule Hullavator system
to lift the kayak overhead and up to roof of SUV and have to
be able to drive right up to the put-in / take-out points if
going solo. Otherwise, it's a great boat. Service by ACK was
efficient and the boat arrived on time and well packaged - no
I have taken this boat out twice and
very happy with it. I'm a total
novice but with the skeg down you
can paddle straight and fast. We did
one river day and one lake day. I
will be buying one.
Liquid Logic XP10
Took it out on a lake to see
how the skegg worked at
tracking. I was amazed at how
well it functioned. Next test will
be whitewater on the nantahala
in three weeks.
New to Kayaking, this one was recommended by a co-
Extremely stable, solid build, very adjustable comfy seat,
TONS of storage space for overnighters or all day trips.
I was amazed at how fast you can move forward with the
skeg down - even in windy conditions.
The unit was extremely well packaged, and I'm pleased to
say the only scratches on the unit are from me.
The drink holder handles a 32oz Nalgene bottle without a
Highly recommend for folks new to kayaking.
Awesome Kayak, great features
and cool design!
