The key to using the C-Tug is to watch the videos, how to put it together and how to use the straps. I put my Jackson Big Tuna on the C-Tug and it hauls the 14ft, 90-110lb kayak with no problem. I've pulled it through grass, dirt, wet and dry sand, even into the water to launch. A must have accessory for any kayak angler or someone going out solo.
Austin Kayak customer service is as always...top notch. This cart is robust and I feel will hold up well. It tracks easily and I have tested it out by jumping it over curbs....rocks and so on. The instructions for how to strap to the kayak have been upgraded on a video....one needs to watch the video or you will not be able to tighten the straps enough to keep kayak on the cart. While this cart will probably work out OK for me it does not really fit the hull of the new Big Game Prowler II. I had a friend who offered to let me try his C- Tug cart to make sure it fit. I wish I had tried it first. This is a good cart but one does need to make sure it fits the hull of the kayak you own.
Have used a couple of times and works great for my feelfree Moken 12.5. The wheel in the keel is great for short distance over concrete, but if distance is farther, or ground uneven, the c-tug cart works well, also breaks down very easily for transport. Very light too!
After seeing a lady friend of mine use her C-tug cart, I knew right then I had to have one like hers and I ordered it as soon as I got home and took it with me and my kayak on a boat to the San Juan Islands that had 20 people who had bikes and or kayaks. The dock where the boat was parked was very high above the water and the C-tug wheels allowed me to transport my kayak to a lower dock or to a boat ramp with all my gear in the kayak saving me a couple of trips. The beauty of the C-tug is it breaks down and fits in my back hatch of my eddyline Journey kayak. The C-tug parts are easy to handle and take apart and put back together. I've owned another set of Kayak wheels that the tires have to be inflated, but when taking it apart I've always been afraid of loosing the cotter pins that hold the wheels on. The C-tug has a unique way of holding the wheels on and you don't have to worry about loosing the cotter pins. Another lady friend who was on the San Juan trip was so impressed with the C- tug wheels that she is going to order a set for herself. Today I went on another paddle and another lady parked next to me didn't have wheels to take her kayak down to the water, so when she was ready I had her carry the front of her kayak and I carried the back end of her kayak and with my other hand I pulled my kayak which was attached to my C-tug wheels down to the water doing all in one trip.
