Review:
A little heavy when folded, but not unmoveable. It inflates and is ready to paddle in less than 10 minutes once you get used to the steps. You do not need the electric pump at all. Get the dual action pump that comes with the gauge for inflating at the water's edge and get the bellows pump to take with you on the water. You can take the hose with the gauge from the Dual Action pump and use it with the Bellows Pump. I am 6'2", 220. I feel very comfortable in this yak. I did 26 miles on my first trip and experienced zero deflation. It is stable, and it is very easy on your back and backside. There are built in buckles everywhere for gear and there are 10 scupper holes to keep you afloat. Pros: -Easy Set Up -Easy Break Down -Stable -Comfortable, even for larger people -Room for gear and secure tie downs Cons: -Tracking is HORRIBLE. When you stop paddling you will immediately make a 360 turn. Best advice I can give for breaking it down: bring one of those heavy plastic storage bins with you and leave it in the car. When you return from your trip, fold the yak up and put it in the bin. Take it home or to a car wash and hose it off. Then dry it before stowing it in its proper bag (it does actually fit back in its bag). The material holds everything when wet and you will pack it away with all kind of sand, dirt, and other grit if you don't properly rinse it first. I also store mine unfolded in my garage. I have a hard shell kayak on a stand, and I drape the inflatable over it after cleaning it. There something about storing it folded up long term that doesn't sit well with me. It takes exactly 60 seconds to stuff it in its bag when I am ready to head out for a trip. I am happy with this kayak. My only single gripe is the tracking. There are tips on their website to address it, and I am trying, but I spin like a top when come to a stop. It's pretty fast, and I pulled off 26 miles without feeling overly tired, but it is a pain to stop to take a picture of something only to spin around.

I have tried lots of inflatables and hard kayaks. I have tried some sit on tops.

Review:
I purchased this kayak based exclusively on my needs for something durable and portable that has as many advantages of a non-inflatable. I read many reviews both here and elsewhere before buying and was hoping I made the right purchase. I have to tell you the Straitedge Angler is fantastic. Perhaps a bit on the heavy side (comparatively since 40 pounds is still pretty easy to carry), but it's very durable, tracks well and has everything one needs. Seat is extremely comfortable and the mounting rack holds my fish finder and 2 Scotty Powerlock rod holders easily and conveniently. It's also extremely stable and easy to access the bow and stern. I was worried about anchoring it in lakes and bays here in So. Cal., but so far it's been easy with a modified trolley-like system I put in. I've not had to use the scuppers, but they appear well made and easy to use. Like the prior review, I also use a soft ice chest for storage and while it may not have all the storage space of a non-inflatable, it's perfect for my needs. Best part is that I can stick it easily into the trunk of my 2-seat car and be off to the water. I've had no issues with drying which it does quickly. My only con (which is slight) is that the plastic rod holders that sit in the back of the seat are not secured to the fabric slots and can fall out easily, but this was remedied with a couple of drill holes and zip ties. Overall, the kayak is amazing and if storage, portability and general ease of use are priorities, you can't go wrong with the Straitedge Angler.

It functions as advertised. Nice seat, and adequate room behind the seat. Not hard to set up, if you are accustomed to inflatables. Only dissapointment were the scupper holes, in that it is not easy to open and close them. Best to leave them closed unless you expect a wave over the bow. Once on the beach you can open a couple of them near the seat, and lift the bow a little and what water has accumulated will drain out. The boat is on the heavy side, but it seems very durable, a tradeoff I prefer.

Review:
I recently purchased this kayak mainly for its portability/space savings for fishing. However, I was unaware of the extra portals along each side of the bottom that when unplugged turn it into a self bailing unit for rec use on rivers or rough warm waters. An excellent thought out option. Im quite pleased with this kayak, especially at the sale price I paid. It tracks surprisingly well,inflates very quickly, cleans easily and Ive had a fair amount of fish slim and blood in it, is very stable, seems tough and has the necessary well thought out bells and whistles to make fishing and carrying some gear a pleasure. Space is at a premium mainly because the inflatable bags at each end take up a fair amount of bow and stern space, but are important to the excellent tracking ability because of the pressure they put on the metal bow and steam keels. Ive already made a few changes and add-ons to enable it to carry a little more gear, including a soft-side ice chest. The removal utility bar is a great feature for attaching rod holders for holding rods duh! but also for being able to troll while paddling, or lashing gear in concert with the D-rings for just a nice river run. Im 58 and slim and the kayak fits me well spent 7 hrs. in it one day and has a very comfortable seat with an inflatable lumbar support. A much larger and/or heavier man or woman might want to test the kayak first before buying. I dont like giving items 5 stars because nothing is perfect, but I cant give 4.5 stars and 5 is closer to how I feel about it at this point.
