I had this kayak for three...

I had this kayak for three years and use it a lot on a local lake near my house and on the Juniata river it is a very stable kayak. It is a sit on top with a fold down seat plenty of room for my gear . The only down fall with it so far is my seat hold down clip broke but it was an easy fix. I am about 210 lb. and I can stand up and fish with no problem. I find that it tracks very nice and easy to control it takes a little bit to get it going but once you get going it is very easy to paddle . It is a little heavy it weighs in at 95 lb. but it is very easy to handle by your self. I give this kayak a 5 star rating and the price was right at 750 bucks not a bad value.

While the Shadow Caster is a heavy kayak, it is not a bad thing. The seat is amazing, adjustable, and keeps you from wishing you were in a bass boat.

At 93 lbs, it is not for everyone but if you live to fish... The $750 price tag is worth it

If you are looking for an amazing kayak look no further. The price may be $750 but it works just like a $1000+ kayak. Fishing from it is a dream and you can't find a better value.
