Submitted by: Pathfinder1 on 6/30/2020
I’m new to paddling and decided on this boat because of perceived quality and the features. I’m generally happy with my purchase and can understand why it’s known as the best seller in it’s class. My only issue is that the bulkhead leaked through from the cockpit. On inspection the bottom of the bulkhead Was not glued to the bottom of the boat and my little finger could slide under. That means quality control was missing at the point of manufacture and the retailer. My retailer is 2 1/2 hours away so making a long trip for a simple repair was something I would do. My retailer suggest Lexel in a toothpaste type tube. I found it at a nearby Ace Hardware store. It’s instantly waterproof, elastic and useable the next day. The leak is gone and the problem solved. I hope this may help the rest of you that have this problem.

I am 6 ft 5 in tall and have been looking for a kayak that would fit me perfectly. I came across the Pungo 125 while shopping for Kayaks at Scheels. The staff was very helpful and let me sit in the kayak and test it for fit. I was very pleased with the kayak and the features. Having lumbar issues in my back I need the kayak what's the appropriate support. The Pungo 125 offered that and much more. It was easy to get in and out of adjustments for the footpegs were easy to reach and adjust while sitting in the cockpit, the seat back and leg support was just as easy to adjust while sitting in the kayak. I got the kayak home and took it out on the water and after spending six hours paddling I have got to say it was a very smart purchase. The kayak tracked very well and paddled with very little effort. It was very comfortable to paddle and it is very fast. While out on the lake the wind came up and I was experiencing 1 2 to foot waves and I put the kayak through its paces. It tracked well in the choppy water, I paddled beam to the waves and its stability was very remarkable. It has double chines and as a result it took the swells very well. This is the best kayak purchase I have made and I recommend them to anyone either beginner or even a more experienced paddler.

Submitted by: Nery on 2/11/2019

This review is for the 2019 Pungo 125, which is the replacement for the Pungo140 I've been paddling for around 20 years, but mostly Sit On Tops for fishing(from11 to 15 feet). After a few recent surgeries I needed something lighter than my unwieldy SOT's, so I decided it was time to move to the Pungo 125. Thus far I'm not disappointed. Other than giving up some storage space, which I really didn't need, the Pungo 125 does EVERYTHING better. It's lighter of course. Speed wise it blows all but 15 foot SOT's out of the water, and is way more maneuverable than any SOT. Another perk is it is less affected by wind with the lower profile. It has extremely good glide for a boat in it's class, and tracks extremely well. I was a bit concerned about seating coming from lawn chair style high seats, but the Phase III seat is comfortable for hours. Although it isn't made for standing, at almost 49 years old, and 5'11 and 185, I can easily stand in it with confidence. If I could change anything I'd add a front bulkhead, and possibly make the deck pitch up a bit in the foot area for a little more toe clearance at various foot positions on braces(size 12 rubs a tad completely vertical). I'd recommend this to any paddler looking for an easy and quick sit inside, and to any freshwater or inshore fisherman who doesn't need to carry the kitchen sink, and who won't be in rough water.
