I've had this boat since March on both lakes and rivers in Southwest Missouri. I don't know what Vibe could change to make this a better boat. Its very stable, even for a 62 year old. It has every option I could ask for. They are properly positioned and designed for function and durability. My paddling group took a float down the beautiful Eleven Point River last weekend and of all the SOT kayaks, my SeaGhost and I were the only ones to make it without a flip. Its not made for that, just an added bonus. It holds all of my fishing equipment, is easily modified for more equipment and it allows you to put what you need, where you need it. There is no need to pay hundreds more for an excellent fishing kayak. Your search should end here.
Very light, just the right amount of flex, great bite, durable.and that line hook has saved me over $100 in what would have been lost tackle. All paddles are not created the same and this one was thoughtfully designed for serious anglers. I fish from a Vibe SeaGhost and purchased the 260 CM and it fits me and my boat perfectly. You can pay more but you won't find a better paddle.
I weight 200 lbs and purchased the large and this PFD fits me like a glove. It has ample storage where I need it, anchors for clips and tools and the back flotation rests perfectly on the top of my kayak seat like it was made for kayak fishing. This may not be the PFD for whitewater but if you're angler, it's hard to find a more convenient, durable and comfortable PFD.
