The Vapor 10 by Old Town Canoe is a great kayak for beginners and intermediate paddlers. Ease of entry, manuverability, and good secondary stabilization makes this a great kayak. The Angler version of the Vapor gives you two rod holders, an anchor system and bungie hold-downs. If you don't care about rod holders, anchors or bungies, then the standard Vapor 10 is for you. Two cup holders makes this yak a luxury model. Adjustable footpegs allow the paddler to customize the pegs for optimal leg position. Easy access backrest adjustment can be made without breaking stride. I like the solid handles at fore and aft for carrying the kayak. Tracking is good without sacrificing manuverability. The only negative that I have about the Vapor 10 Angler is the location of the drain plug. In my opinion, someone didn't put much thought into it's location, "Wait! we forgot to put the drain plug in... this looks good. Put it there." You can't open it and position your kayak to drain. You have to hold the kayak in an ackward way to get any water out. Even then, it's next to impossible to get all the water out. I guess that's what sponges are for.
