+has plenty of pad eyes for seat replacement (which is absolutely necessary)
+enough room in the rear for milk crate and a couple other smaller items
+carrying handles on all sides
+deep rod holders
Now for the negatives:
-First and foremost, the most unstable kayak I have ever owned. I could barely turn around to retrieve anything from my milk crate without wobbling and having to catch myself from the kayak turning over. From then on, I could only reach back there while facing forward and just feel around for what I needed.
-The kayak could not handle any type of, "rough", water. Even smaller waves made it feel unstable.
-the scotty rod holder it comes with is just a piece of plastic. doesn't stay in place and is flimsy.
I really wanted to love this kayak but what truly ruined it, which is the most important factor to be, is the stability of this kayak. I tried and tried again different methods of padding, reaching back to retrieve tackle, and my body placement hoping that maybe I was doing something wrong, but nothing seemed to help. I don't want to be a nuisance reviewer but i'll hold true to the two star rating. I hope this can help others!
I am 6'2 at 190 lbs.
The boat is stable, I have not flipped in it, but I also feel its not great for standing in. There are foot peddles that are adjustable which is nice if you are tall. The seat is not comfortable, but I was forewarned several times, so I intend to purchase a taller and more comfortable one. There are two fishing poles holders behind you which can make it difficult when pulling a fish in or trolling. However there is one holder in the front which when angled correctly, can be used as a trolling rod. Using a net helps. There is plenty of storage space as well as dry pouch, which I have used for my wallet and keys and cell phone.
The boat is not heavy, but throwing it up on racks requires some strength, especially after a day on the water.
Also keep in mind, that the Kayaking world can be a total racket. Simply buying the boat is not enough, so add at least another $200-300 in accessories, such as a paddle, paddle leash, paddle holder, etc...all of this I acquired slowly as the needs arose. If you intend to use it for most of the year, which i do (used it through mid December) , you need to think about proper clothing, such as waders, boots and a water proof jacket, gloves, etc...this can add up in cost. Again, I slowly acquired all of this stuff and now feel well equipped.
I intend to put this boat through a tough new year and feel confident it will last me many years. Its a solid buy, no regrets.
