First and most important the service and helpfulness of the ACK staff is unmatched in any industry! The Native Watercraft Ultimate FX 15 is without compare. It is very stable in the water but still maneuvers very well. The standard features far exceed any other tandem offering. The seats are extremely comfortable and the high/low position adjustability is not offered anywhere else. We like it because my wife is still getting comfortable with kayaking so having her seat lower helps a lot. The included adjustable foot rests make a big difference in comfort and in handling the kayak on the water. You have to add them to everyone else's tandems. The non-slip flooring is a great thing to have because some water always ends up in the kayak just from dripping off of our paddles. I could go on and on about how good this kayak is. I also own a Native Watercraft Manta Ray Propel 12 that is also fantastic. You can buy cheaper kayaks but you will get what you paid for.

This is a great kayak. By far the most comfortable seats and deck in any boat I've been in. You trade speed and weight for comfort but it is worth it. I have been able to take it out both tandem and solo and it has exceeded my expectations. The trim/ weight distribution is important in the solo position I have found. It paddles awesome in the tandem position with a better weight distribution, and 2 people can get this boat moving along like a beast. I like the bow hatch, it is great for added secure storage. It should come with the kayak. It is a wide boat, I use a 240cm paddle and I am only 5'8 and it is a good fit. So many ways to outfit this boat! It will be a lot of fun. Fishing, camping, photography, this boat will be able to do it. Very versatile. It is heavy, but I am able to car top it by myself. I use the Rhino universal side loader and I load it onto a Subaru Crosstrek. I use the paddle logic Trail trekker Maximus to cart it/portage. That is an incredible kayak cart and it can handle the Native with ease. ACK should sell them. I got this kayak with the rudder option and it is very helpful in this boat. Makes fishing easier, and drifting while eating your lunch more fun. This is an expensive boat, but it is a boat I will be keeping for a long time. I can rig this so many ways and I am able to transport it solo. Quality construction and a great design. I have ordered parts and goodies from ACK through the years but I have never ordered a kayak from them. My boat shipped from Texas to Central Oregon without a blemish. Tracks great and watertight. Perfect boat for the lakes and waterways of Central Oregon. Thank you ACK and Thank you Native for making this boat.

Q: In terms of paddling efficiency, how does the Native FX15 compare to the Malibu 2xl?
