Rated 4.4 out of 5áby 75 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Amazing Deal I am a 14 year old seasoned kayaker, and I got this boat for a great price. It was a very Stable ride. It moves well over rapids, has a roomy cockpit, and the molded dash was helpful. The dry storage kept all of my stuff dry. The paddle holder was amazing if you were porting. My first kayak had NOTHING, but a seat and makeshift cup holder but this had everything I needed and it weighs very little. I am 103 pounds and 5'1" and and this was the best kayak I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nice Yak Bought two of these, for the wife and myself, and have really enjoyed them. The first thing you have to understand, is that it is nine and a half feet long. Short yaks like this are never going to be great at tracking, they just aren't. It is however a very stable, and secure ride, that tracks a well as a 9.5 can. My wife had never paddled before, and can be fearful on the water, yet she felt completely secure and comfortable in this right away. The seat is excellent, and as good a seat as you will find on a yak under $1500. Easy to transport at under 50pounds, the molded in handles are never going to break, over all the yak has a very tough and durable feel to it. All yaks tend to overstate their weight capacity, and this one is not different. I use mine for fishing, so I have extra gear with me, and between me (175) and all my gear (maybe another 40), it's near it's limit. Overall, a real good yak, that is suitable for both cruising and fishing. June 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great kayak for beginners I have never been in a kayak in my life, but I have always wanted one. My brother and I both decided to purchase one about a week ago. I chose the Perception Sport Swifty Deluxe 9.5 Kayak and he chose the Pelican Trailblazer. I went with the Swifty mainly because of the color choice, but this boat turned out to be much more than just pretty lol. We took them to the lake and tried them out the day we got them. The Swifty made me feel right at home on the water. Its design allows you to move basically however you want but the kayak remains stable. I tried my brother's Trailblazer out as well and I prefer the Swifty by a land slide. It is a little bit slower and takes more to get it moving, but it is super stable, which I love. I'd recommend this kayak to anyone. Its definitely one of the best things I've bought in a while, April 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Maiden Voyage Easily balanced. Handled well. 9.5ft and only 44lbs. LOVE this boat! May 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Wow! Great kayak, great price! This kayak has the most comfortable seat of any we have ever tried. This is a super value: stable, lightweight, and maneuverable. The carrying handles are a nice bonus, as are the dashboard and the fishing rod holders. May 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5áby Perfect for me I'm a new kayaker on a budget. I chose this kayak after a little research. I liked the price, the roomy cockpit, the storage area, the comfortable seat, the easily adjustable foot petals, and the color - mine's purple. After taking it out on the lake, I'm very happy with it. It tracks well, maneuvers well, and it's stable enough and roomy enough that I can easily paddle with a squirmy 6 year old passenger. This is not a sports car - it's a comfortable sedan. It seems pretty durable. I don't doubt this will become a good loaner for kayaking guests when I'm ready to trade up to a faster model with more bells and whistles. June 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Awesome Fun!! My husband and I bought our kayaks last summer. I purchased a sport swifty in tie-dye blue/green. We kayak on a 6,750 surface acre reservoir in Kansas, roughly 3-4 times a week. We average 5+ miles a trip, and I love my kayak. Its light enough I can carry it to and from the water, yet sturdy and rugged enough to take on the waves. Can't wait for spring/summer. I am 5'6" and weight 180 lbs. March 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby awesome for a big guy I'm a pretty big dude 6 foot 285 and had no trouble using this kayak. it is perfect for lake/pond fishing. Wouldnt take it in the ocean without a skirt. But if your a semi-athletic bigger guy you will have no problems in this kayak.( Been out about 10-12 times) March 29, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5áby Does not track Its a comfortable kayak, light weight and easy to throw around, but don't go out into any wind or currents, one you stop paddling its like you're free styling spinning around in circles. I bought it for its light weight and easy to carry capabilities, however i am thinking of returning it because of the terrible tracking, I thought i could deal with it, but by the time you get your rod in your hand and cast, you've already done a 180, it gets annoying constantly having to correct your direction even in the calmest of water.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Not So Swifty I purchased the Swifty 9.5 in June and have used it about 10 times. I like the shorter length as it can fit OK in my PU bed. The cockpit access is large for easy in & out. The seat is fairly comfortable. However, I have found that it tracks fairly poor and is very difficult and tiring. At times it feels like this thing is dragging an anchor. I suspect this unit was fat-sized to provide a 325 lb max limit by making it much wider than other models.. I am 6' and weigh 200 lbs and just figured the higher weight rating meant a better kayak. I used it for 1 hr and 20 minutes on my last paddle and I was whipped (and I'm in decent shape). I compared with someone using a rental sit-on kayak and theirs tracked thru the water much easier (but didn't like the flimsy seat). I also have the same situation someone else posted..... as soon as you stop paddling the dang boat rotates 180 degrees. This is bizarre as it doesn't matter which way the wind is blowing or direction you are going on a calm lake. Very strange and annoying. I also tested this against the rented sit on top unit and that boat didn't rotate one bit when paddling stopped. I plan to buy a second kayak for my wife and will not consider another Swifty. I told my wife she can have this one and she said heck no cause she noticed the same problems the few times she went out. I only paid $299 plus used a $15 coupon so I don't have much invested. I'll probably end up selling this one on Craigslist next spring and getting one that tracks better for the recreational user I want one where I can enjoy up to 2 hours of paddling instead of feeling I'm dragging a dropped anchor. .
