The Intrepid 120X has been replaced by the Argo 120XP
Like the popular Intrepid 100X, the new Intrepid 120X is designed with neophytes in mind. While its unique multichine design still puts a premium on stability and tracking, this longer, roomier version of the Intrepid also offers improved acceleration and speed. Its sleek construction, storage hatch and superior outfitting makes the Intrepid 120X a paddlers' best friend.

The Pelican 120x is my first kayak and I think it is a great touring kayak for beginners and intermediate paddlers alike. I have toured a few lakes, camped on an island and taken a 3 day 2 night trip down the St. Louis river in Minnesota, it performed flawlessly. It is light, durable, easy to paddle, tracks well and is very stable. I can store my 65L NRS dry pack in the rear, my sleeping mat strapped to the deck & my 10L dry bag (food storage) in front of my feet which is plenty of storage for most trips. I would definitely consider purchasing a Pelican brand kayak when looking in the future.
I have paddled many different canoes and kayaks however this is the first one I have owned and I love it for getting out and exploring. I have not used it for anything other than day trips on relatively calm water so far. It is a great boat for stability and comfort and it creates confidence for new paddlers as I have let my son use it. It still has maneuverability for experienced paddlers and it tracks well. It is easy to get in and out of. There are a few deck lashings for gear and the rear recessed storage area is great for a large dry-bag. The foot rests are adjustable without getting out and that is nice. I plan to do some overnight trips as well as fishing from this Kayak. I wish it came with the rod holder clips as it does have the molded place for rods. I want to seal off the front and open the bow storage to accommodate more gear. The construction process makes it stronger and lighter than a rotomold and the colour combo is really nice. I would recommend this kayak to anyone looking for a nice, fun play boat.
