But as far as handling and ease of movement the wilderness Pungos are great!!! I own a small kayak rental business (Lake Isle Kayaking Adventures) in Central Alberta on Lake Isle, and by far the most favorite kayak is your Wilderness Pungo!!
I received my Wilderness systems Pungo 120 as a birthday present and i love it. Its got a huge cockpit to fit both me and my dog, and still lots of leg room. It tracks well, esp in bigger waves, and has a comfortable seat. Mt only complaint is that as a lady who has Osteoarthritis in most of her body adding 2 handles (kind of like small towel bars) on the cockpit would make getting in and out a lot easier as it is, there's barely enough to grab a hold of to pull myself up into a standing position!! (which is the only way I can get in or out??) But the easability of handling the kayak out on the lake is top notch!!
I do really enjoy my Pungo 140 as its easy to maneuver in the water, is very stable when the lake is a bit rough and has a nice deep, long cockpit that fits my dog as well as myself!!!
Just bought the Wilderness Pungo 120 and absolutely love it for the comfort (adjustable seat) stability and ease of manuevering thru the water. It has a nice, roomy, cockpit, so that my dog can easily fit in front of me and she doesn't hinder my paddling. My only complaint is that the one plastic screw that holds the seat down came undone??? and I cant seem to attach it back???
All in all a good kayak to start with in my opinion!!
