Love my kayak it is lightweight, easy to carry, has very good manueverability. Stable on the water. Also can get many accessories for this little rocket of mine.

A tribute to our tributes! I love this kayak, my partner and I each got one for a great deal. It has a great shape and tracks really well. It's the perfect size for long day trips or light one-nighters. Super impressed with the comfortable seat and how adjustable it is. The weight and slim profile have also made transporting them a breeze. We have taken them on loads of lakes, protected bays with little tidal influence and on some relatively chill creeks as well and they handle very predictably for 10 footers.

I just got this and took it out on the lake for the first time 4/27/18 (also this is one of the first trips of the season). It felt very unstable and tipsy the first few minutes! It also felt tight/smallish, I am 5'2" and 140 pounds. After some time in it, I realized I needed to engage my core muscles more in this kayak than my previous one and that gained me a great deal more stability. It handles very well in the water and after a few hours I became comfortable in it without it feeling so small. I'm looking forward to more time in this to adjust to it. It's enjoyable to paddle. I do think I'll end up in the drink tho at some point bc stability appears to depend significantly on my balance.

Have been paddling several years (canoes, flatwater kayaks). I bought this kayak as an extra because of low weight (36 lbs), relatively narrow width for 10' kayak (26"), medium-sized cockpit (39.5 x 22), and has stern bulkhead w/hatch. A bonus was that it fits inside my minivan if I wish to do that. Fairly low profile.

On first trial it felt relatively unstable & I wasn't happy about not being able to have my legs in several positions - am 5'4", 160 lbs. - but second time I got more used to it. I then paddled several more times last summer and loved it. Easy to get in/out and I found I was able to bend one leg if I wanted. It seemed as fast as a couple of other slightly longer rec boats I have.

I used on small/med lakes, and a flatwater river. Best for day trips. Seat comfortable. I bought a Seals cockpit cover (size 2.5) and splash deck for it, which worked out great. If there were a bit of chop, water would have easily gotten into the boat because of shallow depth but the splash deck helped. I don't paddle in rough weather or real far from shore on large lakes - if so, would prefer a sprayskirt.

I recently purchased my first kayak and decided to go with the Tribute 10.0. Being a beginner, who is also female and smaller-framed, this kayak was perfect for me. It tracks great and at just 34 pounds it is easy enough for a smaller person to carry around. As a student, the smaller size of the kayak was a benefit for storage purposes, even though you do sacrifice speed on the water with a short kayak. Overall, love it, no complaints so far.
