I've had the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 kayak for about a
month. I selected the fishing package and I'm extremely happy
with the kayak and the included equipment. I fish primarily on a
lake and a little in a river. The kayak is steady, tracks well and is
sufficiently maneuverable. The price for everything was more than
reasonable and I have recommended this package and ACK to
I absolutely love my tarpon 120. I purchased the fishing package and
am very happy with all I received. Just the total package.
Love the Tarpon 120. Provides the perfect combination of speed and
balance the all purpose kayaker.
If you are planning to fish, the fishing package is a very good deal.
excellent package deal and truly exceptional customer service; our
first tarpon 120 was purchased from E. coast outdoor closing famous
retailer couple of years ago for my son and we had to return it twice
as it was coming damaged in transit due to poor packing(wrapped in
only plastic sheet, that's all) and only on third time it was
acceptable, but when we decided to go with Austin Kayak for the
second Tarpon angler package for me, the kayak was shipped
promptly and delivered in excellent condition with superb packing at
first try(industrial duty bubble wrap all around, cardboard on both
ends, plastic sheeting, all parts intact and not a scratch)...i am using
it fourth weekend already, so far on inland lake to get experience,
but my son used his for two years with success in Lake Michigan in
calm waters and in Marina when it is quite windy and Tarpon 120
performed excellent...very sturdy yak...i am 6' 1" and my son is 6'3"
and the seat is great, even for 6 hours of fishing, and plenty of leg
room...s/m vest fits more athletic type person and l/xl vest fine for
bigger chests(mine is 52" around)...Scotty bait caster rod holder is
perfect and flash mount rod holders are great to hold a net or extra
rod...shop with confidence here and you will not regret! hope it helps
and thanks, guys, for superior shopping experience!
everything was excellent

Most stable kayak I have ever
been in!! Tracks great and fishing
from it is a blast!!!!
Great kayak, well thought out
installation of items included
in the package was
professionally done before
delivery, and the kayaks
arrived well packaged and
Its a great kayak and a great
package. The service and
price was awesome. Having it
delivered to an address versus
a freight depot was huge.
Especially in rural Michigan -
it saved a 4hr drive. I would
highly reccomend ACK!
Got the same kayak as a friend
who introduced me to
kayaking a year ago. LOVE IT.
Found a great
company through ACK to buy it
from. Shipped well
protected and came with
everything I needed to start
my kayaking fishing
experience. LOVE IT!!
The tarpon 120 is great. They
didnt install the flush mount
rod holders in the back so i was
sorry about the oversight Tyler. We strive to be better than that.
My first kayak and I love it. I
am very pleased. Too many
features to mention.
The Tarpon 12 package arrived
two days after I ordered!
Everything was well-wrapped
and arrived in perfect
condition. Kudos to ACK on
job well done. I will
definitely order from these
folks on next purchase.
