The Pelican Pursuit 100 is possible the worst kayak put out on the market. I have not paddle a huge number of brand yaks, admittedly. But, this yak is awful. It will spit you out in a heartbeat, no stability. In moving water it will, if you stop correcting, turn around backwards and track backwards. They say you get what you pay for and in this case that is correct, the yak is cheap in all respects.
