I purchased a Santee 126 Sport brand new in 2016. I selected this model for the wide open cockpit it offers and the lightweight construction. Purchased the optional Sport Console for keeping additional items and handy water bottle holder. Like the Gear Trac that came with it where I mounted a Yak Attack paddle holder when I need to put it away to take a quick photo.
The only 2 negatives I have is the sides flex too much when gripping making an exit. Improvement is need there for reinforcement. The other is the seat back which should of be higher for better support. The later models now have a seat back to my understanding.
Nicely balanced and never felt it would tip over on me. Love the Mango color.
