This kayak has proved to totally worth it's price! I've had it for just over a year and I can honestly say that I love it! It handles so smoothly on the water, it's light enough for me to carry alone, and it has more than enough leg room for me (my little 18 lb dog can even sit between my legs)! I went from a big, plastic Costco kayak to this sleek Eddyline Sky 10. I paddle on flat-water only. It's been perfect so far!
