Rated 5 out of 5 by rock Not just the best kayak for the buck This kayak is very tough and glides very well. Yes the seat is not comfortable but there is a seat that fits right in this kayak. Bass Pro Ascend FC steel Elite black entry kayak seat 1896044 / FC 110-1166295. Check this seat out and you will be happy at $44.95. I have had many people to ride in my kayak and was amazed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GregE Great fishing kayak If it wasn't for the useless seat the kayak would be perfect for kayak fishing. I modified a stadium seat and put the original seat on top of it. The kayak tracks well and is very functional for fishing. I really like the mounting of the pole holder, as well as the rear cargo net, anchor system and front storage. Very pleased with the purchase. Buy it in store and not online. January 12, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blueangler Can't wait to get it in the water The staff at Dicks was phenomenal with helping me buy this kayak and picking it up. I haven't fished out of it yet but the number one priority is upgrading the seat. Very comfortable it sit in and plenty of leg room for a tall guy! November 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pratley02 Everything for a starter. This kayak will most likely beat any other 12ft sit-on-top fishing kayak for this price. I bought this kayak for $449 and it's unbelievable. The storage is fantastic, the overall look of this kayak looks like a Jackson Coosa hd. It's just great for the beginner kayak angler ( which I am). The seat, WELL of course not useful at all. But I quickly changed that by buying a marine grade, aluminum seat from Walmart for $41 and it fits perfectly. It doesn't fit a normal sized milk crate. But that just leaves room for creativity. I built a kayak scupper cart and it works great. Spent maybe $25 for parts at lowes. The major down fall is that it's not the most stable kayak you'll stand in. Of course it's not going to be, but this wouldn't be a pricy redesign for field and stream to do on this kayak. Have yet to flip over though, but I also haven't attempted to. And I've yet to put it in a big lake or river. September 29, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Firemedic574 Only good for Lakes Big, nice boat, laid out well, and looks good. Seat is terribly uncomfortable for even shirt trips. Feels pretty stable. For anyone wanting to use it in anything other than a lake, STAY AWAY. This boat doesn't do well with ANY form of current. Turns on a dime, if you're sitting still, but once you're moving its a pain to steer. I ended up having to use backstrokes and J-strokes to try to make it through the creek we were floating. I even ended up bending a brand new paddle trying to dig (paddle hard) to keep from getting pinned and flipped by the current. (these were not even class 1 areas). September 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyC Incredible Kayak! I bought this 2 years ago and there's not a single thing I can complain on. the hull is super strong and barely has any scuffs on it, and I use this a LOT. im 6'4" and fit like a dream. I even take my 9year old granddaughter out with me and she sits just in front of the front rod holder. super stable and never tipped it once and I use this on both fresh and salt water. if you buy this you will fall in love with it the same as I did. I got this for $399 but its worth the full price. I would buy another in a second if I decide to buy another kayak. September 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam Field and Stream Eagle Talon12 I got this Kayak on sale at Dick's for $399 , I did a lot of research on kayaks before deciding on the Eagle Talon 12 and glad I did as this is an excellent kayak very stable , steers and moves quick, easy to handle in the water, it is a bit heavy but I bought a wheeled dolly for $40 on amazon and it works great , you would be smart to replace the seat as it is very uncomfortable and virtually no support . It does however come with a lot of extras that most other kayaks don't have like the anchor trolly set-up with anchor and rope scotty mount with pole insert as well as many other built in extras . A good buy and worth the money for the fun. August 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill10 Nice kayak for the price, after a few mods. I went from an Old Town 10 foot sit-in to the Eagle Talon 12 to have a more effective fishing kayak. I?m on the Florida west coast and use it on rivers, lakes, gulf harbors and bays, saltwater mangroves and out in the Gulf of Mexico itself. It operates very well in all waterways and, dealing with winds and the wakes of larger watercraft, I?m finding this kayak to be very stable. It doesn?t seem to sit too low in the water and doesn?t gurgle water up through the scuppers; I weigh in at 180. It has all the room I need for my gear; the tank well is enormous. The paddle parks are something I didn?t have on my last kayak; very nice features. The Scott Rod Holder is a good accessory, but it was way out of my reach so I remounted it to the inner right side within reach but not so close as to interfere with paddling. I also extended the anchor trolley the entire length which improved that system?s operation immensely. On the seat, I went back and forth between the GCI Sitbacker and the BPS Stadium. Both seemed like good seats, were the same size and had many similar features, but I landed on the BPS because it has metal arms and I felt like the reclining system is more effective and sturdy than the GCI straps. It was about ten bucks more, though. Overall, with my mods and a heck of a good deal from DicksSporting Goods, I?m pretty happy with my new kayak. August 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Conrad Great starter kayak with some minor issues I did a ton of research before buying a kayak and I picked the Eagle Talon. I looked at all sit on tops from $400 - $600 and feel this is the best one for my needs. Pros: * Stable * Rod holders * Light enough * Tracks straight Cons: * Seat - replace with the CGI Canoe Seat ($35) * Cost from Dick's ranges from $600 to $399 depending on the time of year - wait for a sale * Small rear deck storage doesn't fit crates July 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by ThePotter On a budget? This kayak is for you. I recently bought 2 of these Eagle Talons from my local Dick's Sporting Goods. My main use for them was for fishing in lakes and ponds, with the occasional river or big water. On receiving them, both seats and front hatch covers had slits from where (I assume) they had been unpacked from shipping to the retailer. The seats weren't a big deal considering I planned to replace them from the get go. The slits in the front hatches luckily hadn't pierced completely through so it is still water tight. I did not receive much feedback when inquiring about replacement hatch covers. That's why I docked a star. As for handling,it's great! Pretty quick, fairly stable, and not too terribly heavy. I can stand in it, but that has more to do with balance and build rather than the boat itself. The back cargo area is a little narrow, but still can fit whatever you want, with a little creativity. All in all, I would definitely recommend this kayak for a first time buyer that wants a quality Kayak without spending an arm and a leg. P.S. Try and wait until a sale. I picked mine up for $450 a piece. July 26, 2016
