I love the width and length of the cockpit in this kayak. Did not like the mesh side pockets because everything gets caught on them when fishing. As a short paddler, I feel the cockpit rod holder is too far forward. The kayak treks very well and is extremely stable. Love the large amount of storage.

We bought this kayak for my husband, since he is 6'2". I spend more time on the water than he does, and I have fallen in love with this kayak. My kayak is Tarpon 140. The Perception has a lot more space on the exterior and interior. I am planning a 2-3 day kayak trip in it because of the interior space. I gave it a 9 because I can't reach the front rod holder. I'm 5'4", and this seems to be a problem with a lot of kayaks. I wish that there were some cockpit side molded rod holders that were more accessible, but not in the way when just paddling. Also the velcro pockets tend to be in a bad spot for me. I used the kayak to put out crab traps. I put my 10 year old son in the back to assist with carrying the traps. The boat was extremely stable.
