I purchased the Ascend FS12T a few weeks ago and have had it on the water 3 times and have loved every second of it. Its a great stable kayak. I have no fear at all when it comes to flipping it over. I've even stood up and fished a few times. Had no issues with it so far. Every time I take it out i get compliments on how nice it is. I would definitely recommend this kayak.
