    I have on to wahoo 12.5, and now I own a Zulu. This kayak handles the wind very well and paddles like a dream. The ability to put on different additions such as depth finders motors and even the ability to shift the seat further back or further Ford makes this kayak really stand out. The stability in this thing is unmatched… I can do a 360 pretty comfortably!

    at 6’5” and 265lbs I can say that of all the kayaks I’ve owned my Zulu was the end game for me. I’ve paddled, pedaled and powered my Zulu and it handles excellent with all 3 methods. I can stand and move about the kayak even when when the waters in the gulf get rough where I mainly fish. I also love the seat it comes with being able to sit on the back and stand and sight cast from the seat is one of many unique features kaku brings to the table. I’d recommend this over most all other kayaks especially for bigger folks who want a super stable platform.

    First and foremost, this kayak was designed and engineered to be a fishing machine. It is big and somewhat heavy, but it is superior in stability. I tried to flip and went over the edge and it did not roll. Am I saying it wont roll? No, but I couldn't force it. I'm a bigger guy 6' 280lbs. and am impressed. It tracks well and stays pretty dry. This isn't my first kayak but it could very well be my last......or so my wife says. If it is my last, I can't think of anything that would be considered an upgrade. It does lack accessories brand new, but it has limitless potential for making it the way you want. I put two rod holders on the forward rails. The seat itself is a step above the "most comfortable" seat any other kayak has. For the price, this thing is a major player in anyone's arsenal. I use it inshore fishing for bull reds and gator trout. Have never been disappointed. Customer service is top notch as well. Even before I bought the kayak, they answered any question I could throw at them. Despite my high praise for this kayak, I still advise everyone to get out and try the kayak before you buy it. It may not be for everyone, but that goes for all brands.
