Made in America, the Crescent LiteTackle is SOLID! That is also to say it is not light weight at about 75 lbs but, for a 12'+ long rock solid kayak, that is to be expected. This boat glides through the water with such ease. It's length gives it speed but the rocker shape of it's hull allows it to turn like a much smaller boat. It's hull design is such that it remains true when paddling straight without the need of an added skeg. It has a wide, flat cockpit and a strong secondary edge that makes it exceedingly stable in the water. Standing up in this kayak is no problem at all. Another interesting point about the shape of the hull is the front of the boat is shaped such that it can glide over good sized waves rather than crashing through them, keeping you and your gear dry. This boat turns heads when out on the water. I wanted a boat I would be happy with for years to come so I spent a little more than I would have on a big box store special and I am so glad that I did!

The Crescent Lite Tackle, my 7th kayak, is a great kayak - the best I’ve ever owned or used. As a 6 + footer weighing 240 pounds I can stand fairly easily although there is a bit of a learning curve as with any other kayak. I love the open deck layout and the tracking - top marks for both. The seat is very comfortable and the rear tankwell very generous. The front storage hatch is huge, maybe the biggest in its class. The Lite Tackle tends to want to ride up over chop rather than thru it which I prefer. The carry handles are not very comfortable but they are rugged- I doubt they’d break easily. The side storage compartments are genius and one of the best features of the kayak. Overall I am very pleased; this is one of the top kayaks in its class and price range. I have no regrets about the purchase.
