The INTEX Explorer K2 kayak is very easy to setup and very light weight. It has everything you need to get out on the water and have some fun. I purchased two of these kayaks and my family of five was out together having fun on the lake. For the price this is a very good kayak sturdy and light weight and moves across the water very well. I would recommend this for going out on the lake or a nice calm river.
We bought it to take our little girl out on the little private lake in our neighborhood and we absolutely love it. It can hold 2 full grown adults and a kid and still moves great. More expensive ones we looked at didn't come with oars and this thing comes with everything. Ordered it online and it randomly showed up the next day.
I kayak in the New River. I have used different types and sizes of kayaks. I really like this kayak although it is not the perfect fit for me. I love the length for the river because it is best for tighter spaces. I'm 5'4" and 150 lbs. and it is very roomy for me but I wish I didn't sit so deep in the kayak because it makes it a little harder to paddle. It seems to travel well and I didn't flip over which is always a plus.
I bought this kayak on sale for $299 to go along with my 12ft Perception Pescador. The good: 2 rod holders and an anchor, tracks fairly good, great value for it's $300-$400 price range and a large cockpit area. The bad- no storage hatches, seat is a little uncomfortable, not as stable as my pescador (but $250 cheaper than my other yak). All in all, it is a great deal for the price.A lot better than the other $300-$400 kayaks.
I bought these kayaks for a lake trip with my dad and it was fantastic. You don't cut through the water like a regular kayak, you more float on top but you still move very easily and feel very stable inside. Also its squishy enough to lounge on which hard kayaks can't really do. Things to be aware of: the paddle is 84 inches which is a good bonus but you may want to upgrade to a longer paddle if you don't want water in your kayak (just splashes).
I bought this yak for an introduction to paddling. Its a great little portable boat. It inflates quickly. Its very stable and the skegg (fin) provides great tracking and control. The cockpit is a little small for me @ 200# and 5'10" but I am very comfortable and stable w my feet on top. Well worth the money! Looking @ a solid sit on this spring. BTW I don't think I would go to a river w this, after all it is an inflatable even if it is tough.
Great Deal. Bought 2 of these last summer when on sale for $400. Wife and I use them on a flat water lake/river in NC. Good tracking hull, but very heavy at 60lbs. Scupper holes allow for draining. But my wife says her seat bottom gets wet. (I put scupper plugs under the seats, which keep me dry but not her.) I like the adjustable seat back. Added a rod holder in front console and an anchor trolley on the right.
I have taken her out three times so far and I love it. The kayak is very stable and tracks well with my 87in paddle. Storage in the front is hard to reach on the water but the storage behind the seat is awesome it holds a milk crate perfectly. The rod holders work well and the handles seem tough. I'm a pretty big guy I weigh 240 lbs and I'm 6ft tall but the only thing I don't like is the foot pegs could be a couple inches longer but overall it's a great yak for the price. Easy to load and unload.
WE GOT TWO OF THESE, ONE FOR ME AND ONE FOR MY HUSBAND. WE TOOK THEM OUT ON A LITTLE LOCAL LAKE. I AM 58, YRS OLD 5'9" AND WEIGH 200 LBS. MY HUSBAND IS 60 YRS OLD, 6" AND WEIGHS 230LBS. WHEREAS THEY FLOAT GREAT WITH OUR WEIGHT AND MANEUVER QUITE WELL I WISH WE HAD GOTTEN THE 12 FT, ONLY BECAUSE I THINK WE LOOK FUNNY IN THESE AS BIG AS WE ARE. THIS IS A GOOD START, I AM ANXIOUS TO GO DO MORE EXPLORING
I bought mine about 2 years ago, it's been awesome! It's really really hard to flip over! It's super sturdy. You can even stand up on it! The only thing I would change is the seat, it's not the best and it's not the worst. Overall well worth the money!!
Bought it a month ago. Its my first kayak so I can't compare it to others. Very easy to stand in, gets more stable the more I get used it. Light enough to load and unload to the top of my Jeep Wrangler by myself. Comfortable seat. Plenty of room for tall person (I'm 6'4). Very nice fishing platform. Wish I bought a longer paddle, 240cm seems a little too short with the seat in the higher position. Also about $150-$200 cheaper than the local stores.
I waited nine months until this New kayak came out an I was not disappointed . It's an innovative design with the wider hull and this is my second pelican kayak because I love the ramex material . The new seat is super comfy for long trips,large storage compartment will hold fishing rods
I'm 215 lbs and this is the perfect kayak for me. The only other kayak I have used was a 12 foot sit in and I was a little concerned about going to a shorter, sit on boat. The sit on is much more comfortable for a guy with a bad back. The seat is awesome and very comfortable. I was concerned about possibly tipping over. I shook back and forth pretty hard and it was very stable. Not a bad price either for a very well made kayak.
I bought this boat a couple of weeks ago and it has performed great - solid construction, lots of storage. It's comparable to sit-on-tops I have that are twice the price. Terrific value for an all-around good boat. The only negative is that it has built-in rudders in the front and back, making it a bit difficult to turn; that may be a positive for flat-water boaters who want to keep it going straight.
I was given one of these as a gift from my father and I loved using it on the water. It is light weight and tracks well in the water. It is very roomy and comfortable. It's also nice and wide so it is very stable in both lakes and rivers. I would choose this boat over a pelican boat of equal price any day because it's better made and more durable.
I have used this kayak over 10 years an love it. I use it every morning to fish an love how it gets me into spots others cant get into.
I bought the No Limits sit-in last year as my first kayak with the intention of up grading in a year or so. I am so pleased with this sit in kayak that I have no reason to buy another 10 foot kayak. This is a great kayak that has been put to the test on big lakes in windy conditions. I have yet to take on water or even get the least bit wet, except for a little paddle drip. It is compact, which to me, is a good thing. You need to stay organized in this kayak. It is light, fast and easy to ... paddle in head winds, as opposed to sit on tops. It cuts right through the waves and is stable. Only an idiot would try to stand up in a kayak, especially in a 10 foot. The nose has banged into rocks and the bottom dragged across stumps in extremely shallow backwater. I don't abuse it, I use it and it has served me well. It always brings me back home. This kayak, I would recommend to a family member or friend because it has been tested. I always stow enough equipment to stay over night or shelter an unexpected storm if need be. With the added weight it is still fast and stable. All of this for $349.
I bought 2 of these Kayaks last year, one for my wife and one for me. We love them. Easy to load for travel, easy to launch, great handling and stability, super to fish from. Thanks Academy.....BTW I am almost 69 years old (Never too old to try something new).
I have had 9 kayaks, the best by fare. Vary fast kayak. Can't stand up, would rather have speed over a barge!
I love my new Prowler. It's perfect for my mix of Texas waters between the highland lake around Austin, to my bay trips around Corpus. I was introduced to it through a guide that uses them for clients and i discovered a whole new way to wade fish and crab walk it. Its stable enough to stand in and its super fast and tracks great. I saw another review that didnt like the tracking and i don't get it, It's great for me but I added a rudder for the winds and I've been out in the whitecaps and got ... back easy. I Love this kayak. It's custom made for Texas. Hooray for Academy
We bought one Labor Day weekend 2014. Lots of hours on the boat. We paddle for 3-5 hours at a time. Does well on lakes, creeks, rivers and bays. Very stable in rough water and rollers. Seats are comfortable. Storage areas, cords, eyes are great. 4 handles-other brands have 2 some have none. We have taken our dog out (35 lbs). Colors stand out. We added hatch bags to hold items in the hatches (sunscreen, bug spray, binoculars, phone/wallet/keys).
Purchsed mainly to use as a fishing kayak. Plentry of room for two passengers and 4 rods pleanty of space for tackel too. Tracks well and is easy to handle. Love this one & I am a female angler.
I've had my catch 120 a few months now and I could not be happier! I'm 6' 2" 260 lbs and this kayak is super stable.. I upgraded from a field and stream eagle run 12 and couldn't be happier.. tons of storage room, ample standing room easily upgradable, tracks good for such a large stable kayak.. it's not fast but you don't need speed to fish.. the seat is amazingly comfortable, I looked at several before I made my purchase and after multiple trips to the lake I am pleased with my purchase..
Had this for a month. Super stable and the seat is the selling point I can go all day in this kayak and not hurt the next morning. I got it on sale for 599.99
I purchased this Kayak almost two years ago. Have been out in it many times and love it. I had a sit in Kayak first then decided to go with the sit on style. I like being able to get to all my gear and I stay cooler with the sit on. Just be sure to wear sunscreen or buy lightweight pants to keep from burning. Can't beat it for the quality and low price.
I love this kayak, you can't beat it for the money. It has plenty of space for storage, very sturdy, and very portable. Only downside to it is that the seat is trash, but I stand for the most part in the kayak, so it doesn't bother me as much. Included is a YouTube review I did of this kayak.
I bought this kayak a few weeks ago.. took it to the lake a quickly found out that whoever put it together did a poor job.. the drive unit was way out of adjustment causing it to kick up while paddling.. the rudder cables where not installed properly and would not turn to the left.. later found that the cables were cut to short.. so now after resucuring all the bolts and loose screws I am having a hard time finding new cables.. haven't had any luck getting in touch with perception.. only show a ... phone number and haven't got a return call..I guess I am just expecting better assembly on a 1800$ kayak. Hopefully I will be updating this with some good news soon
I'm having trouble putting the peddles on is there a place I can take it so I won't strip anything
This is a nice kayak. The seat, weight, and speed are great. Handles very well, very stable. It is a little faster than a Tarpon 100. Feels and handles a lot like the Tarpon 100, but doesn't turn as fast. The only complaint I have is the side handles are more like hand grooves. I perfer the style that it has on front and rear. It is definitely worth the extra money (I got mine on sale :) for the seat, and fish finder compartment.
I bought this kayak a few weeks ago because I was looking for something lighter than what I currently have, yet with a raised seat. I have owned a Hobie Outback and a Jackson Cuda 14. Compared to these two this kayak is very stable and also tracks well. It feels wider than it actually is because it has a lot of open space in front of the seat. They removed the bow hatch and place a open spot with a scupper hole for a fishfinder. I found the raised seat fairly comfortable and did not need ... additional lumbar support, while in the high position. The rod holder slots are nice and vertical, but a little shallow. I ended up making some out of pvc piping and it worked great. Overall this is a good kayak. The raised seat keeps you up out of the water and dry.
I have had this kayak for about a month now and it is awesome. Very stable and one of the most comfortable kayaks I have ever been in. It also glides on the water with little effort. I weigh about 180 lbs and no water comes into the kayak through the scrubbers. Overall best kayak I have ever owned. Definitely a keeper
i upgraded to the pescador pro 10 and im more than happy with my decision. im thrilled actually. one of my favorite features is the ease of loading the 10.6 ft kayak which i do by myself in and out of my van. its super fast to load and unload. once i hit the water i was extremely impressed with the easy maneuvering of this kayak. it tracks great and did not twist at all. seat is extremely comfortable and you wont sweat on the mesh seat at all. i stayed dry fishing all day with the scupper ... holes open as well. the pro 10 is very comparable to the more expensive kayaks and for a kayak under a thousand bucks i just dont see how you could do any better. its a fast, stable vessel that turns on a dime. it would be nice to have a larger front compartment for my crate but i just put it in the back one which is plenty big for a crate. it was well worth my money and i have no need to upgrade because this kayak has everything i need to meet my fishing needs with very little add ons that i will make as time passes.
This kayak is extremely light and moves so easily on the water that it is amazing. The lightest touch of the paddle will get this kayak moving, it has great speed and stability plus it is very comfortable. The drawback to this kayak is that it does not track well, every paddle stroke will cause the nose to wag, no big deal since it is so light that you can keep it going when you want it, however, as soon as you stop paddling it will turn around and not go straight. Minor annoyance and one that I ... overlook because of the lightweight, stability and speed. A very nice kayak for the money.
I bought this kayak a few weeks ago, and it was my first sit-in, and my first fishing kayak. I was not sure how I would feel about the sit-in, and I almost took it back to Academy before getting it on the water. I'm glad I didn't. Today my boyfriend and I took this one and a cheap sit-on-top out fishing. I used the Pelican and it was amazing. It is a bit more "tippy" than I'm used to, but it's narrower and longer than the sit-on-tops I've used. It's also faster and has more room for stuff.
I have had this boat for a couple months now, works well, tracks well, easy to paddle and moves well through the water. Stability is somewhat an issue if you want to stand. I'm 210 pounds and can stand in it but it's sketchy. I agree with the other review, fish ruler is not in an ideal spot, would like a cup holder, and the rod holder is to far forward(I'm 6'1 and it's a reach for me). For the price I don't think you can go wrong. I looked for used kayaks found some deals but in the end I ... thought this was the best fit for me. Overall, I am satisfied, works great for me and always looking for an excuse to get it in the water.
I bought this pelican 120 a couple of weeks ago. This thing will handle some water. It's looking enough the wind doesn't beat you to death and ease of paddling is nice. We cruised the intercoastal waterway around Morehead and Beaufort.
Avid kayakers can enjoy the features of sit-in kayaks, which may be equipped with an adjustable seat, molded-in cup holders, padded cushioning and roomy cockpits for extended time on the water. Sit-in kayak privide a little more protection from your environment while paddling, but can be more difficult to get in and out of. When browsing through kayaks for sale, you can find kayaks and canoesto help customize or store your kayak.
Immerse yourself in the fresh air with sit-on-top kayaks that let you sit on top of the kayak rather than in a cockpit. Paddle keepers, rod holders and swivel rod holders make sit-on-top designs ideal for fishing kayaks, and padded seats allow you to lean back comfortably as you cast out your line and wait for a big catch. Fishing kayaks offer durability and storage space for all your gear.
For quick excursions on the lake or for fun out at camp, inflatable kayaks offer a viable option. The lightweight design of inflatable kayaks makes them ideal for moving between locations or for tucking away on the go. Units with hand pumps make inflation and deflation simple. Even though they are lightweight, inflatable kayaks come equipped with helpful features, such as cargo nets for keeping accessories in place, deep cockpits for added stability, polyester deck covers to protect against UV rays and grab lines that let you pull the unit easily out of the water after your adventure.
