Field & Stream Eagle Talon Kayak 240 240
Great value for the price. This yak is a pleasure on flat water and can handle rough water ( foot high waves and wind). March 12, 2015
The WOW! factor Value VS money spent is outstanding. This kayak makes a great platform for fishing its very stable and tracks well when paddling. The only drawback I found was the seat had a tendency to slide forward against the plastic hull causing the back of the seat to recline hence making the back support useless however I found a very quick and inexpensive fix. I found an all weather rubber mat at Lowes cut it down to fit under the seat cost about 9 dollars and the seat now stays in position making it a whole lot more comfortable. This kayak is stable enough to stand in however its a bit of a trick to get from seated position to standing or from standing to seated I installed an assist strap on mine it does help with stability when changing position. I am 6ft3 260 pounds and I find I have plenty of room in the kayak for me and my fishing gear. And if you go out with some friends you will hear WOW! a lot WOW you can stand in that or WOW you can lay down on it and nap in the shade or WOW yours is way faster than mine I can hardly keep up.

What a deal! Awesome yak! Caught it on sale for 399.00 Great customer service at this place, very helpful. Now time to kill the Redfish! March 10, 2015
Good Yak to Start and can be killer when upgraded I bought this kayak June 2014. The first and most apparent thing that is needed is a seat upgrade. I was not able to pull an all day without going to shore at least every hour or two. However, seats can be done on the cheap by looking up videos or by looking at sites that sell yak gear for higher end seats. Although, the most outstanding feature is that the kayak is a great base to start modifying off of. This yak can be taken out as soon as you can get to the water after leaving the store and load it up with your gear and get to your favorite spot, but to make it awesome you got to modify and it is easy. I already have installed a fish-finder and got a new seat. The anchor trolley is effective in very limited conditions. The trolley does not allow for much adjustment to the wind and can make it where your unable to get the angle on a spot if the wind or current are in different directions then the last time you were at that same spot. The anchor trolley can be extended and made easier to operate with a couple of pulleys placed to span the total length of the yak allowing for full adjustment. The storage may seem limited but with a little measuring and perusing the interwebs you can find pretty much anything that you could need from coolers, to bait buckets, or the sorts that will fit in that rear area. Scupper hole plugs are a must if you are going out in the winter months or in cold water. The four holes in the cockpit area wont let you sink, but does not keep it dry either. The seat soaked up a lot of water when I had them unplugged in the summer months which was nice then, but is a big problem in the winter months. The yak does track well and you can get it going at a pretty good speed. Overall the layout is great and I fish a few species in my local bay system, but I feel like you could take this yak out and catch anything. The yak is a good price because no matter what brand yak you buy you know your going to be personalizing it anyways. I gave it five stars because it was a good yak, good price, and a great base to personalize for how I like to organize and fish. February 4, 2015
My 1st Kayak Works really good Other than the seat this Kayak turned out to be a great fishing platform. If the Seat had provided some back support I would have scored this 5 stars. I replaced the seat and when I went out fishing the lakes, ponds and rivers of New Hampshire I was really happy with it. Caught plenty of fish species, bass, perch, crappie and every kind of panfiish there is in our waters. This kayak is stealthy and stable, not a speed demon but pretty easy for me a newbie to learn in. February 4, 2015
good product Very smooth ride. Very comfortable seat and can sit in it for hours fishing. January 13, 2015
Awesome fishing yak Read the reviews, did some shopping, bit the bullet and purchased one in early summer 2014. After fishing on and off through the summer and pretty aggressive fishing in the fall, here are my pros and cons: PROS Excellent kayak for the price. Tracks well, is outfitted to drop right in the water from the store and can be used in all situations. It is not the fastest yak on the water but its not meant for speed and does well with comparable size yaks. It is extremely stable and at 6'2 260lbs I can easily get in and out and sit on the side to cast without issue (one of my buddies actually has a picture of me sleeping in it on the water). I have landed bass, croaker, cats, trout and rocks with no issue (one cat was over 40" and was a bit difficult to bring over the side without help but was accomplished). CONS Scupper plugs are a must if you will be fishing in colder water. There are 6 total holes....4 in the cockpit (2 under the seat and 2 a bit forward of the foot pegs) and 2 in the stern gear area. I don't plug the two in the rear but plug all 4 in the cockpit and have never had a problem getting wet.. The installed anchor trolley is not great...it only spans the rear quarter/half. If you plan to anchor in a current, you will need to install a new one that runs the length of the boat and is a bit easier to manipulate otherwise it is useless. Mine does seem to have a very small leak in the hull...there is usually a little bit of water in the hull after a trip. That being said, it is seriously a minimal amount of water even after several hours so I have not been motivated enough to spend time finding it...rather spend that time fishing! As other reviews have stated, the seat is pretty lame but that can probably be said for most stock seats in most of the yaks I looked at. It's fine as a starter but you will want to invest in a good quality seat soon. All in all, a great fishing yak. The cons were fairly easily mitigated with a few adjustments (which, if you are going to get into yak fishing, you are going to do some modifications no matter what). I have thoroughly enjoyed this fishing season in it and am already planning a few more modifications (changing front swivel mount to a triple mount, adding a cleat or two and changing my milk crate layout) while anxiously awaiting the spring season. If you are looking for a great yak to get into the sport which will last awhile and won't kill the checkbook, this is a great choice. December 30, 2014
Great in saltwater and an excellent value for the money I have taken this bad boy on about 10 trips now and it has yet to let me down. This thing can really move once you get it going and tracks pretty well. The amount of features that is included at this price is what really sets it apart though: dry storage compartment runs all the way through the hull and stays bone dry. Comes with an anchor and trolley system for windy days... Rod leashes and paddle keeper on both sides are integrated into the design, and you even get an adjustible scotty mount front rod holder. Most yaks with these features will set you back a couple of hundred more, so this thing is totally worth the $$ . I have caught numerous fish on this kayak in choppy water, and have even been taken on sleigh rides by some of these guys, and never once did I feel unstable. The weight capacity is also a plus as I do intend on taking this thing on island camping trips. The only downside to this kayak would be that standing on it while fishing might pose as a challenge. I attempted to do this and felt a bit wobbly about half way up, so aborted that attempt... I'm also 6'4 at 240lbs so this may be easier for someone with a smaller build. Also, the seat will leave you butt-hurt after about 4 hours or so. I recommend getting a new seat or adding extra cushioning underneath. All in all, I would totally recommend this kayak for someone just getting into the sport and not looking to spend an arm and a leg doing it. I'm very satisfied with this purchase and look forward to slaying more fish with it in the future. December 30, 2014
Good For First Time Kayaker's This kayak is good for first time kayak fisherman. I bought this kayak at Dick's and it was my first kayak and it was good it took the waves awesome if you like getting wet.The only down fall is the seat is very uncomfortable I would recommend that you get a better seat because the seat it comes with will be comfortable for a minute or two but I got a john boat seat and I put it on my kayak and it lasted me for about 5 hours in till I had to get out and stretch.

This Product Is Great The Field and Stream Eagle Talon Kayak is worth the money. I've taken it out multiple times around the lakes here in SD. It handles very well on rough water. I recommend this to anyone that's debating getting one. Dick's will usually have this on sale around May.
