A very good kayak with a comfortable frame seat. Tracks straight with good glide. Not very light, but manageable by one person to carry. Has a few irritations including the screw hatch with an untethered cover.

A great sit on top, close but a bit shy of perfect. Pluses are: tracking, stability, no wet butt seat pan, decent speed, light weigh, huge hatch, comfort from the clip on seat, and overall fit, finish, and craftsmanship of the boat Minuses are minor: some splash comes in by the low sides due to the side handles and the lower volume bow means larger wake waves sometimes come over the bow. Very pleased and a joy to paddle.

An acceptable basic paddle for a good price when on sale. Nothing remarkably good or bad about the paddle.

A pretty good boat for the price. Appears higher quality than other inexpensive kayaks sold by Dicks. Lots of features, comfortable seat, and tracks acceptable. Enough speed to putter around the lake or relaxing float down the river.

Bought this boat based on 2 selling points: 1) the drop down skeg and 2) the P3 APro seat.

I find the boat tracks very good with the skeg up AND is highly maneuverable. Only notice slight improvement in tracking with the skeg down while paddling, but it does have better straight line glide.

The easy adjustments to the seat while paddling is a real plus. Haven't found the ideal setup yet but it is so easy to adjust!

This kayak has proven to be a family favorite going to our local lake. Boat tracks very good, and even with 2 adults and a squirmy 5-yr old in it the boat behaves well.

Used it a couple of times solo with good results. At 12' long storage is ok in our garage, but two people are needed to get it on and off the car.

The Fat Boy has to be the quickest and easiest cart to use. No messy straps! Had mine for 3 years, very durable. The tires are great on pavement,grass fields, and paths with ruts, roots, and bumps.

The perfect non-fishing SOT? Possibly so given all the things it does very well. Responsive and stable out in the surf. The occasional flips are more due to my limited experience.

It's a blast to take down rivers. Decent speed in the flat sections and a hoot in the rapids plowing thru the standing waves. At least once a month I also like to go to the lake and just putter around. I just laugh and wave at the maniacs in their bass boats and jet skis trying to swamped me in my Tribe. So far they had no luck!

Have the Tribe 9.5 and it found it to be great in the surf and going down class I and II rivers. The fact that the boat has no hatches is a plus to me as less areas for the boat to take on water.

I'm 6 ft tall, 220 pounds and the boat is NOT too small for me. Like that it easy to carry and fits inside my SUV.

This is a great boat to have for lots of family fun. We keep it at our beach house for use in the ocean and have also taken several rivers with rapids. Responsive and stable and light enough for my daughter to carry, tons of fun for the whole family.
