I'm 5' 10 , ~145lbs and I do not have a complaint other than their being no rod holder in the front. No big deal, this kayak is easy to load/unload and it'll hold up to 300lbs. The plastic is thick, I know because I've been modding it since the first week I had it. I added a folding boat seat, rod holder up front,and painted it since I didn't like the gray color it came in. I've made it mine and will never get rid of it, it's very stable. The first thing I did with it was flip it with me in it and climb back in on the lake. I had trouble flipping it at first it was more challenging than I thought. It was easy to get back into as well, overall 5 stars. It's a great beginner/intermediate kayak that will last. I'm writing this 2 years after owning mine, I've gone on rivers, wide open lakes w/ big boats, small streams/creeks and have not had one issue with it.
Overall a good product. On my first time out, I lost the deck loop that was attached next to the seat. It is in a poor location and I kept hitting it with my paddle. The adjustable seat is comfortable enough for a short ride but I found that I needed a higher back and more seat cushion for longer rides. I ended up purchasing another seat through amazon.
Other than those issues, the nice wide width kept me smooth and steady with lots of room to move around. Foot pedals are a plus, also. I am looking forward to many river trips trolling my line.
I am fairly new to kayaking but did considerable research on entry/ middle level models. When I got mine I was looking to fish, feel stable, and have something light enough to load and carry myself. I'm turning 60 this year and am only 5'8 165 lbs. And was able to handle it easily. It is about two inches wide and has a modified hull that is more stable than the sit in I rented when researching, but is much easier to paddle than the sit on tops I tried!! It is a great value for the money and would have gotten 5 stars except the front hatch was not cut out ( QC needs a scolding New Beach!) And it does not have a rod holder in front like most fishing models. Best bang for the buck for those who are on a budget, or like me, believe in starting low and upgrading if I stick with kayaking.
