A trip yesterday, in near freezing temps, and I realized I had forgot to insert my scupper plugs under my seat. This was going to make for a LONG cold day. I had my buddy paddle over, I placed my feet on the sidewalls, and hands behind the seat on the side walls and lifted myself up while he lifted my seat and inserted the plugs. This kayak did not even think of tipping. It handles my height and weight like it is nothing.
The boat paddles very easy, and tracking is very good, especially with the included rudder system. The boat is surprisingly fast as well. This is a GREAT boat for the price, and competes, in my opinion with much more expensive rigs.
If you are considering a fishing kayak, or even just a sit-on-top kayak, I strongly suggest the Vibe. Very well made, very reasonable on price, especially if you go for the package deal.
The boat tracks very well for me, and actually handles the wind better than I expected, considering how high I sit above the boat. The built in features are excellent, leaving plenty of storage room for all my gear, plus some. The boat comes ready to fish, and little needs to be done to modify, but keep in mind, if you decide to add to it, a lot of this has been thought out ahead of time, and the indents, cutouts, etc already exist, all you do is install in the location already designed into the mold for the addition.
I would recommend this Kayak to anyone, from beginner to pro. Well thought out, well built.
