This is a great recreational kayak, a good choice for paddling on the pond or lake. We have two Pursuit 110s and have found them to be very stable, easy to paddle and track well. They have roomy cockpits with comfortable foot pegs and a molded, shock-corded holder for your paddle. The paddles that are supplied by Pelican are best left at home. Too short, too heavy and the blades are too wide. We tried the paddles on our first outing and switched to Bending Branches Whisper paddles before the second.
