Bought as my first kayak and have owned for a couple of years now. Use it for fishing on Ozark creeks and occasionally running class 2 WW to access good fishing holes. Not many spray skirt options other than Seals brand for the very large cockpit. It's pretty comfortable and has easy to adjust foot rests. A little customization makes it a pretty good stable sit in fishing kayak.

Not hard to paddle straight once you get used to it. It's very stable and holds lots of stuff. It goes and turns like a little sports car. Not really a long distance cruiser, but still fairly versatile.
Overall lots of fun.

The kayak is a shorter than many. This is a trade-off. The shorter length makes it light and easy to get on the water but it also requires a little more skill to paddle in a straight line.
It does not come with any chords to tie down gear (except for a paddle holder). I plan on adding some myself later.
