I love my lime green Tetra 12! I read all I could find on SOTs in the 12' range for over 8 months before buying. I sat in several, but paddled none when I made my decision to buy my first non-inflatable kayak. Tetra 12 started out at the top of my list, then I became distracted by more expensive boats (Wilderness Systems, Jackson, and even Hobie). After sitting in all that I thought would meet my needs as far as size, performance and capacity I had to eliminate several because they would be way too heavy for me to load and unload alone. Between the Tetra and the Hobie Quest 11, I decided that for a first timer the Hobie was not over 60% more comfortable price-wise. I made the perfect choice for me! This yak is stable from the get-go, and continues to be stable even in the rough water of Joe Pool Lake on a windy (18-20 mph) day. I mostly wanted a kayak for fun on the water and exercise, but with the added rod holders and Mod Pod II, I can accessorize to my heart's content. I could even fish from it if I want. The rudder was a pricey addition that I would not want to be without in the wind. I can concentrate on paddling and working my arms and core in a rhythm and let my feet make course adjustments. I got my boat on the water for the first time Mother's Day. Since then I have paddled over 50 miles according to my tracking apps. I paddled 8 miles last Friday! I am a 5'3 female. I weighed 164 that first day. To date I have lost 10 lbs and I owe that to paddling and loading my kayak. If you search the net for Tetra reviews you won't find many, good or bad. I don't understand because this is an awesome lightweight and fast boat with a lot of weight capacity and plenty of storage for someone who needs to haul a lot of comforts everywhere she goes. Dave and the guys in Houston were very helpful and patient during my Q&A visits, calls, and ordering. After all the reading, shopping online, and driving around and looking, my husband asked what would I change. If I was buying now after paddling my Tetra, what would I buy. I would buy the Tetra 12 again. It is just perfect for me and my needs. Next I want to see how it handles in the surf and BTB. 😉

After trying all the kayaks at a demo day last year, this one stood out as the best. I too am surprised this has not caught on. A great boat indeed.

Im surprised nobody has reviewed this one yet. I tried several kayaks out over the weekend, using a gps to compare relative speeds and trying to compare relative paddling effort. I was surprised at how well this one paddled, while still remaining relatively stable. If youre in the market for a 12 footer and want a good paddling boat, put this one on your short list. I dont think youll beat it for the price.
