Picked one up from a buddy of mine at the FD for $100. Best money I’ve ever spent, I have several other kayaks but this one quickly became my favorite 10 footer.
The weight limit for this…
The weight limit for this yak is listed as 250lbs. I am 6' and 230 lbs. This boat fits me very well and it is quick. The tracking is very good. It does feel like it will roll easily but it doesn't; it can lean a lot before tipping. It could use more storage space and the dry compartment is too small for even a cell phone.
Have owned several canoes and…
Tracks good, decent speed and very stable. Put a forward rod holder on and bungee a milk crate on top of rear access cover to put cooler in. I find myself taking it out a lot because it's so much easier to put in back of my small pickup. Kind of thin skinned though, so you would have to be careful; would not recommend dragging it around on concrete ramps etc.
Guess what I'm trying to say is good little starter fishing kayak for the buck.I'm 5'10 200 lbs and comfortable in it. Have a friend who is larger than me and he prefers it to my Tarpon when we go fishing! I put stadium cushions on seat but do on the Tarpon also. Have caught 15-20 lb striper bass out of this kayak no problem. It's more of a spend the day on slow rivers, lake coves rig but good budget buy for the person looking at doing just that and having something easy to carry the whole family could use.
The Explorer 10 kayak tracks…
the bottom is sloped in causing a lot of water to build up under the seat; the back is very small about 6 inches
Other than that it's a great kayak; is easy to carry for one person
