This is the second year I’ve had the Bali 10SS out on the water. I was mainly kayaking the local river. I am impressed. Handled great on high and low water. Yesterday, I took it out on a busy lake. The ripples didn’t impact the kayak at all and there were some big ones.
I like all the storage areas. I have no issues with balance. On hot days I take out the scuffer plugs.
Things I do not like is, it is awkward. I always need help loading and unloading. I kayak by myself but always go to public places. There’s a lot of good samaritans. Also, strapping it down to my forester. It’s difficult because there’s nowhere to link straps threw. I know to look for that feature on my next one.
