Great value!I had heard a little buzz about the Catch 120 and was intrigued. When I saw that Academy had it, I snagged it right away. Despite the hype, I have found that this yak lives up to its billing. It's got a stable platform for standing and fishing. The seat is very comfortable and breathable. I like how it can be easily positioned in the low or high setting. The Catch isn't the fastest yak out there, but that's okay. I'm on it to fish, not to race. Compared to some of the others out there, I would ... highly recommend it. There's plenty of room to rig it up. It could use a bottle holder. But other than that I'm happy with it.
Love it all except the leaksI've had it since June and just took it out for the third time. It's an extremely stable kayak and the seat makes you want to fall asleep it's so comfy. I realized after my recent outing that the hull had about a half gallon of water in it and I'm not sure which part of the boat is leaking. If anyone has similar issues please share.

A really great kayak for the beginnerThis 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.
Awesome value!I bought this Kayak because I wanted to do some fishing and paddling on both lakes and rivers. The sit in design is excellent for that purpose. I took it on the water two hours after purchasing and it handled wind and very choppy water on the lake with ease. I paddled into a headwind and sustained surprising speed. Excellent control. The quick lock hatch was perfect for my wallet and keys to stay dry. I put two poles in the flush mount rod holders and they stayed in place very well even on the ... rough water. My tackle box fit nicely in the rear under the bungees. The seat was actually very comfortable once I adjusted it for my posture. My only complaint and reason for the 4 star is due to the carrying handles both breaking LITERALLY before leaving the store. The rope used is just very low quality and severed even though the openings weren't sharp. We even checked another of the same model and it's cords were also starting to fray. I had to buy new handles just to take it out side easily. Otherwise, excellent value on a very stable and fast kayak.
