I really enjoy the Old Town Loon 126 angular. I am a large guy and it supports me very we'll. I like the back support and the seat is comfortable. The kayak tracts well. I enjoy the center console.

Not for big guys!

I read all the other reviews and decided to buy this kayak. I took it out for the first time and was not able to balance in the water. I am a large guy. I am close to the capacity limit with a long torso and wide shoulders. This kayak was very tippy. It dumped my the first time I sat in it. There is no back support and no way of adding any support because of the seat being screwed into the kayak. I could not use it. My nephew that is about 170lbs had a difficult time using it. It kept going in circle when he was gliding. The seat should be about two feet forward to center your weight on the kayak. Tall and large guys should stay away from the Sun Dolphin Bali 12 SS.
