I researched Kayaks for almost a year before I upgraded. I retired recently and finally have time to devote more time to hobbies. Price was a consideration but not primary. I was looking for a kayak I could use on lakes, rivers and on the intercoastal waterways in Florida. I also wanted a fishing Kayak and because of my age I wanted something easy to handle, paddle and was stable. The Vibe Sea Ghost 130 seemed to meet all my requirements.
I purchased a Sea Ghost about a month ago and have been using it on Lake Norman in North Carolina. It has meet all my expectations. It is easy to maneuver, very stable, and fishing from it is a breeze. All the accessories are easy to reach and the included rudder has made following the currents in the lake a breeze. I will be using it with great confidence on the intercoastal waterway and on the Silver River, and Oklawaha this winter in Florida.
If I were going to change anything about it I would add a replaceable skid plate on the bow like the one on the stern..
I would recommend the Vibe Sea Ghost to Beginners as well as novices and pros. Very happy with my purchase.
