It's easy to load up on the roof of my car weighing 49lbs feels light but it's 3ft wide so a little awkward to handle. On the water it's very stable, this is my first kayak and within 10mins on maiden voyage I was able to stand up and cast in every direction while a slight wind blew me across the lake. This lake has no motorboats so I didn't have to worry about any wake, if a wave came I would have to sit down, but on flat water I could comfortably stand for awhile.
I use a scupper swift cart to transport from car to fishing spot, although it's wide I can pull it through deer trails to secluded spots with ease. I plan on adding an anchor trolley, fish finder, paddle holder, and skeg. If you're looking for comfort, stability, bang for your buck bass fishin this is the one!
