I bought this kayak as an extra for grandkids and for fishing. It is light and easy to handle by myself and it paddles and tracks pretty well. This is my fourth Pelican, the other three are Premium RamX, this one is not. It flexes more than the Premiums and is not as stiff. The seat is very uncomfortable and slopes to the back too much. I put an inflatable seat out of a Intex inflatable kayak in it and is much more comfortable. It is not as good of quality of the Premiums, but for the price difference, it is still a good value and it gets the job done.
