Patented triple-layer RAM-X material is made of High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, a top grade of high density polyethylene. This means less material is needed to produce boats that better resist impacts and breakage.
I bought this boat from a local sporting goods store that rhymes with Rick's during their annual boat sale and I'm very happy with it for what I paid and what uses I need it for. I'm mainly using it as a fishing platform and generally target freshwater species in ponds/lakes, rarely with moving current outside of wind-blown, and I'm very pleased with the performance thus far. Haven't been out in saltwater/waves but I'm sure it'll hold up so long as the chop doesn't get too funky. The first day out I had maybe a good 15 minutes worth of just getting used to the physics of me shifting around my weight and how it impacted my balance, but after that adjustment period, no major concerns with stability. Tracking is fine for my purposes and the weight/length allows me to easily get it onto and off of my mid-size SUV and into the water without much strain. I'm a fan and I hope my Mustang lasts for many more seasons to come. For what it's worth, I'm about 5'11" and 230lbs, carry about two rigged rods and 5lbs of tackle, a net, PFD, and a small cooler on my outings.
Wife and I have just bought two Mustangs, and have gone out the past three days - the boats track fairly well for being 10' and piloted by rookies, and have performed well so far; fairly light to get on top of an SUV, and they have good space to store coolers, dry bags, etc. Another reviewer mentioned the stern deck compartment fills with water pretty quickly; this has been my experience too, but the kayak is sitting much lower in the water than wifeys, who isn't getting nearly as much water in. Decent boat for a decent price!
After having it in the water twice now, it tracks nicely, but stability could be better. Yet to take it out for fishing.
An overall great kayak! Construction feels solid and it makes for a very comfortable paddle. Storage compartments are awesome as well!
We picked up a kayak about ten years ago from Costco. It has to be inflated before use, very portable. We were very excited about picking up the kayak & trying it out ! Four times now the kayak has developed holes and needed patching up. It is fairly quick to inflate & deflate with the pump included. Kalamalka Lake ( Vernon, BC, Canada ) is where we go kayaking after my partner gets off work.. We both really enjoy kayakingon the lake.
I saw many positive reviews on this kayak and pulled the trigger to get one. I am a beginner and this kayak is my first ever that I purchased and I am not sure if my opinion is far to the left field or not since many of the reviews were good. I go with my instinct and judging this kayak based on my need and the kayak's design. The recess at the stern where the removable pack located is a disaster...it takes on water during rain and splash from the paddle. Whoever designed this thing needs to figure out a drain hole or path so the water will not stay in the recess. I don't feel comfortable to have my dry bag sit in there all day submersing in the water. The tie outs come out of the holes from the top of the kayak and there is no way to replace it if it breaks...since there is no easy access to the back (stern) of the kayak. The slot (recess) surrounding the oval opening of the kayak leads the water right back into the back recess where the removable pack located... As some of the reviewer mentioned, the front storage area is also recessed with a plastic cover. The recess allows the water to come right into it. This thing is a disaster for me on the water....too bad, I already registered for the both and don't want to remove the sticker and reapply for a new licence so I am stuck with it until I decide that I am too sick of this thing and pull the trigger for a different brand.....
We purchased 2 10 ft Pelican Mustang kayaks and 2 Field & Stream paddles. They both track well. We love the light weight of the kayaks and the paddles. They have a small space for a cell phone. A nice removal storage compartment in the back and a dry hatch up front. They have 2 fishing pole holders built into the kayak behind the cockpit. Bungee area in front and back for hauling your gear.
