This is my first kayak, and it may be my last! It is awesome. I am a veteran,and this kayak allows me to get out into nature and have the peace I so dearly need- just me and nature!!! I am out in this between 10 and 20 hours per week, and it never lets me down. I can pick up this and put in into my truck without help, and it goes everywhere I want it to go. Kudos, and thank you for manufacturing a boat I can manage without help from others!
This boat is top of it's class. It's not going to run rapids or hold a ton of fishing gear, but when it comes to an affordable entry into recreational kayaking the Conduit will perform better than any other boats at it's price point. I've taken it down rivers with a few light rapids or across flat lakes without issue. The deck sheds water well, it tracks straight, and it's short length allows for good, responsive handling. Limited storage and the fact that I had to replace my handles after a year are the only negatives I see in this boat, but at this price point storage options are limited anyway. 4.5 stars easily, and would recommend this boat to anyone looking to get started.
