Overall it is a good boat....
Overall it is a good boat. There are features I love including the position of rod holders and the anchor trolly. I am probably going to buy a larger Heritage or their newer models. My only complaints are how sluggish it can feel compared to other similar sized kayaks and that the hull is prone to bowing/deforming quickly if you leave it in the sun improperly supported. I have a cheap, unbranded kayak that seems to be easier to paddle and doesn't deform in the sun like this one. Granted I'm in hot-hot Florida and could have kept it covered but life...
Looking to get into a sit...
Looking to get into a sit on top kayak and found a deal on this little beauty. It could use a better seat option but at this price point, it was about what was expected. Lots of mounting and storage options as well as key features I was looking for. Predrilled for rudder, crate well for fishing, and adjustable foot braces were the only must haves. Having dragged it up rocks in Wv, mud in Ky and Tenn, and over sand at Dry Tortuga I can truthfully say it performed above expectation. Caught musky, three species of bass, crappie, hybrid stipped bass, snook, and barracuda out of my little cheap fishing vessel.
I've owned several kayaks...
I've owned several kayaks in my life. And I must say this little yak is awesome! I needed a small yak that was easy to manage and fish in shallow water. The boat is basically a blank slate. And the only thing I added was one Scotty rod holder behind me on the right. I was amazed at the tracking for such a short yak. It's fast out of the hole and easy to paddle. I sit side saddle a lot and find it to be very stable and comfortable. I weigh about 240. So this is one of those boats a bigger guy can use with ease. I'd like to see a small hatch ahead of the seat that is easy to reach. But other than that, I can't say enough about this little boat! Awesome.
This is my second Heritage...
This is my second Heritage Redfish. Read my review of the Redfish 12 also.
I bought the Redfish 10 as a companion kayak to my Redfish 12. The 10 is lighter and easier to manage than the 12 getting on and off the truck racks. The cockpit space is almost identical to the bigger 12 and is plenty roomy.
I use the Redfish 10 to fish from lakes. My wife uses it when we paddle together on day trips.
It is stable,and gets into very shallow coves with ease. It isn't as easy to control in head winds as the 12 but not a problem either.
One significant thing about Heritage Kayaks is the warranty coverage, it is the best for any product I have ever purchased period. Nine months after buying my Redfish 12 it developed a hairline crack at the front of the seat. I took it to Outdoor World in Dawsonville, Georgia. They took a photo of the small crack and e-mailed it to Heritage Kayaks. One day later I was informed to leave my kayak at Outdoor World and Heritage was sending me a complete new Redfish 12 kayak in seven days. Unbelievable in this day and age.
Heritage Kayaks is what you want, for quality, value, and warranty satisfaction.
I tried the 10 and 12'...
I tried the 10 and 12' models of the Redfish and came away with the 10', mostly because of the weight (less than 40lbs) As I get older (64) I need less weight more than I need more speed.
This yak is very stable and easy to maneuver. I'm a little claustrophobic so it's tough for me to use a sit in yak. The sit on top design also allows me to stretch my legs in any direction, which also gives my back a break.
My main needs are fishing and fun. The 10' Redfish does both extremely well.
I have what my wife calls...
I have what my wife calls a plastic navy of fishing yaks, all large, long and heavy to load: I purchased a Redfish 10 to use as a grab and go light weight yak. Tossed in in the bay today under choppy and breezy conditions.
The Redfish 10 tracks remarkably well for a short yak, is fast out of the hole, is quite dry with the scupper plugs in, and possesses remarkable stability, in fact better than many longer yaks. The factory seat feels like a kidney punch while sitting on a brick: I tossed it and installed a Crazy Creek air yak seat like I use in all of my other yaks: my Redfish 10 is now as comfortable as it is a joy to launch and fish from.
The Redfish 10 greatly exceeded my expectations. All of my fishing is in semi-protected bays in Southwest Louisiana. The Redfish 10 handled the chop and large power boat wakes extremely well. I love this little yak.
The Red Fish 10 is my...
The Red Fish 10 is my first Kayak and am very happy with. Picked up a used town and country sit inside so the wife could ride along - guess who gets the red fish? When I get to use it, I find it to be very comfortable and stable and a great way to spend a day on the water. I would recommend this Yak to anyone who is in the market; workmanship, ride and storage are first rate
This is my first kayak...
This is my first kayak that I have ever owned, so I have limited experience to make comparisons to other kayaks. I can tell you that I love my Redfish 10. It is a very comfortable ride and is very stable in lots of different conditions. I have taken it on some local lakes, rivers, and canals. I try to do 4-5 mile long trips and have found the Redfish to offer a comfortable ride with nice tracking for a 10 footer. There is lots of storage for equipment too. I would recommend the Redfish for anyone looking to try kayaking for the first time.
Been out on my new Redfish...
Been out on my new Redfish 10 a handful of times now, and love it. For a 10' boat it tracks well. Very comfortable. I'm 6'2 180 and and have plenty of leg-room and stability. Comes with a really nice padded seat, paddle holders and adjustable foot rests. Also had a rubber hatch cover with plenty of storage room. At $599 it cost a little more than comparable boats, but it was worth it since none of the others I was looking at had any of the above features. I figured it would be worth an extra $100, and I was right. Redfish 10 is very stable in the water. Perfect for flat water like lakes & rivers. Even does good on the Gulf of Mexico on a flat day.
