Like Music on the water! I bought my Zydeco 9 last summer (2018) specifically for its shorter length (9 feet) and lighter weight (less than 40 lbs.). I am a shorter (5'2") & older woman (70 years) and wanted something I could easily lift myself and transport inside my small SUV. The color I chose (Freeze) is awesome and I get so many compliments on its beautiful colors. It tracks well and I can easily keep up with paddlers who have 10 foot kayaks. The seat is almost plush compared to other kayaks I have been in and it is very comfortable. I also love the convenient way the foot rests can be easily adjusted while you are in the kayak. With my other kayaks you need to adjust the foot rests before you get in the kayak. My only complaint is why is the water bottle holder underneath the seat padding? I fixed that by buying a Can-coctions Can-panion beverage holder for $4.

Nice little kayak! This is my 2nd kayak. I bought it specifically for the shorter length so it would easily fit inside my small hatchback. It comes with a nice set of features for a kayak costing less than $300. Not as fast as longer kayaks, but is a lot of fun on flat-water and very stable. It tracks pretty well for a shorter kayak. My only complaint is the shape of the carry handles is not good-- they dig into your hands when carrying-- I plan to replace with some round tubing.

Great lightweight kayak for kids and smaller adults! I got this little gem as my first kayak. I wanted a kayak less than 9 feet long so I could easily transport inside my small Honda hatchback. Gave it an 8 because it lacks foot pegs, but found a set of pegs online and a neighbor installed them in less than an hour. Now it is complete. I am a 65 yr. old female and can easily move this kayak myself.
