Very reasonably priced option for as lake, river, bay and back county fishing platform. The seating is top notch and in my opinion out performs the Native canoe beach chair. Tried both. The adjustability is very convenient and facilitates finding a better position when the tush needs repositioning. Speed is decent and not at all as lackluster as I suspected. The boat is light enough to lift singlehandedly and throw into my jeep liberty with seats folded down and hanging out the rear window. There is just enough room and areas on the boat for all the angling necessities and it pays to set up an efficient fishing layout and stick to it, everything in its place. I will certainly enjoy my first kayak purchase for a long time to come.

I bought this for a gift and it was exactly what my sister wanted... Perfect for her. The only complaint I have is about the website. The site said it was in stock and would ship immediately. This was not the case, which was a dissappointment considering I needed it a few weeks after the purchase and that was why I ordered from this site. After I ordered I received an email shortly after saying it was on back order. I called and customer service apologized and said there wasn't anything they could do. I went back to the website after I talked to them and put another kayak in my cart which was still stating they had them in stock and would ship before the end of the day. So if you are ordering from them because they state they are in stock I would advise you call and confirm this before placing your order.

Nice kayak. Easy to throw on top of the truck. Not bad to fish out of. Easy for my wife to handle.

Top Question & Answer
Q: I am 6'-4". I am trying to decide between the Tarpon 100 and 120. Are the cockpits different sizes?
A: They are the same size

Q: I need to replace my seat on my Tarpon 100. Can you help me?
A: Unfortunately these kayaks were designed to use one seat, so you are unable to replace the seat. You can purchase replacement pads for it, but it would be the same ones that came with the kayak.

Q: How much back support does the seat provide. I have had back surgery
A: Sorry to hear about your back! The built in seat should provide enough comfort (depending on your recovery) for some quality recreational usage (1-4 hours) but you may want to invest in something with a bit more support for any sessions lasting longer. I would take a look at some of the High Back seats as some of those also come with lumbar support. Hope this helps and heal up soon!
