I just got this yak delivered today. Words can not describe the awesome! Very fast for a SOT,and I love the lay out for fishing! ACK is a great company with fantastic prices, customer service, and shipping! Well, the shipping was Estes, but ACK wrapped it up nice! haha. Highly recommended for a fisherman/adventurer! Its a great "jack of all trades" boat!
To be honest the kayak is fine however it arrived dirty and scratched with parts in the bottom for which there was no explanation. The kayak has a scratch down one side and another by where the rudder was installed. The anchor kit was shipped loose and the anchor tore up the bag in shipment. I believe this is ACK's version of the Wilderness Systems 120 Angler as the parts are different from the original that I saw in a store.
I finally was able to get on the river yesterday to take the Tarpon 120 Angler on its maiden voyage. WOW is the correct word to describe this yak. I am a big guy, 265 lbs, and I was able to get in and out of this with ease. The handling of this yak is phenomenal! It tracks very true to current and turns very easily. The seat is very comfortable and the accessories that it was rigged with are awesome. $1105 is a lot of money, but once you try it out, you see that the old saying is true, you get what you pay for
Very satisfied with product. Took fishing on Virginia's Shenandoah River the first week I had it. It proved itself as a winner. Two members on the trip are now purchasing the same kayak.
