Great kayak, I've used it...

Great kayak, I've used it on reservoirs and rivers. It's a bigger boat and can be hard to maneuver in a current. I add an extra seat cushion for longer trips.

Bought the eagle run about...

Bought the eagle run about four months ago, it is a very stable kayak that tracks very well. I use it alot for fishing and sometimes just going down the river slowly. I have actually fell asleep on it before while floating down the river that is how comfortable it is to float. Great Kayak for the beginner or the most experienced. Probably will buy another one just like it next year.

This was my first kayak...

This was my first kayak and when I bought it I was a rank beginner. The boat was stable and comfortable and a good boat to learn in. It is great for a large paddler and/or if you want to take a dog out with you. It is also very slow and rather like paddling a barge. After several years, some of the parts deteriorated, such as the deck bungees, the knee pads, and especially the plastic buckle for adjusting the seat. Unfortunately a call to the manufacturer was not helpful. I understand that they replace these parts if one's boat is still under warranty but if it is older than that, they won't even sell the parts to you. My son was able to make or buy parts from other places to fix up my boat for me. The worst part is the foot pegs, which were always popping out and were very difficult to get back in. Replacing those with better pegs improved this boat enormously.
