Rated 5 out of 5 by Masochist77 Very Dependable Kayak So last year I wanted to get into a Kayak, I was 275lbs - most of the 10 foot kayaks had a capacity of 250-325lb - once you add grear etc I would be pushing it. I saw this had a 500lb capacity and so I chose this kayak. I am very happy with my decision.I have dropped to 230lbs, and I can tell you that having tried a friends 10.5 foot kayak, I still prefer the way this handles in the water. I have taken the kayak out about 20 times, mostly on a lake, but also on a slow moving river. I have had zero leaks. It tracks a bit to the right, but that may be my paddling technique. I have read reviews of leaking and cracking, but I have not had this issue. I store my kayak in the rafters of a garage. the kayak fell from 8 feet on to concrete and there was no damage. The kayak is a little heavier then some models - that is my one con. I wish it had a front well, but I can add one if I decide too. I like the drywell on the removable pod - but I wish that was in the front, but that is just my preference and not a real con. July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by irobin006 Great hybrid kayak. Could not be happier with it. I have had this kayak for 2 weeks now and have tested it out on a very large lake with friends in sea kayaks, saltwater marsh inlet creeks fishing, and a large river. This kayak handled them all beautifully. It tracked well on the lake with my friends in much longer touring kayaks. It was more than stable enbough to handle the wakes from large boats on the lake and handle anchoring in some current to fish on an outgoing tide in the saltwater inlet. (Caught 3 redfish, 7 flounder and pulled up a monster stingray in the kayak by the way. Excellent!) I am very glad I purchased this kayak that seems to be able to handle the variety of water I want to throw at it. Stable, fast, tracks well, can load and unload from top of Jeep by myself, the compliments go on and on. July 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ned Barnacle Better than the Tarpon for heavier people. The add'l weight capacity of 150 lbs over the Tarpon means that when you weigh 320 lbs your tackle box gets flooded as the "self-bilging" feature of the Tarpon means water comes into the floor of the cockpit and the cargo hold in back from beneath as designed to.... Side by side, the Tarpon is built like a tank as compared to the Eagle Run. But when YOU are the size of a tank, your weight partially sinks the Tarpon boat. The F&S allows your tackle to stay dry when it should be. 2 very important things to consider: 1 Your weight and 2. Do you want self-bilging if you are heavy. July 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kayaker Leaks Anyone? I think this boat has a surprising amount going for it. It tracks well, is even more stable than the Wilderness Systems Tarpon by a little, it is fairly fast for a sit on top, and it comes with a surprising number of bells and whistles for an inexpensive kayak.Here's the problem: THESE BOATS LEAKEveryone who's bought one, I strongly suggest you stand it on its end against a tree, a deck etc, so that the stern is on the ground (where the drainage plug is). Make sure to secure it with cables or a strap. Then slide a hose down the front hatch. I did the day after I bought mine and sure enough, shooting out water through a hole located within the scupper ring (very bad place to have a leak as it's drawing in water constantly)So back it went Dicks was fine about taking it back, But anyone using this boat ought to do the above. I spent the extra money and got a Wilderness Systems Tarpon.Well, well worth the difference. Built Ike a tank. It all ultimately comes down to the material and the material this boat is composed of is cheap, weak and not something you want to be in out on the water. July 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kaydee222 Great first time kayak This is the first kayak I've purchased but I've used several others and I'm please with my choice so far. I just got it last week and I've only taken it out twice so far but it tracks well and turns quickly when needed. I'm a 28 year old female that is 5'6" and 135lbs and I can load this baby up and off of my car by myself and without much of an issue. I do have to kind of lay it on the front of my car for a moment before I lift it all the way up to get it on the rack, but I just lay a blanket down on the hood of my car so as not to scratch it. It's working great so far. As far as the fishing features, I'm not sure how effective pole mounts on the aft of the boat will be. Can someone explain why they would put them there? I haven't attempted to use the watertight compartment yet, I have my own waterproof box I bring along that I store in the front of the kayak, but I'm sure I'll end up using it eventually. I think it will get some use when I go on longer floats lasting a few days, rather than just day trips out to the lake. The seat is comfortable as are the leg cushions. I'm really glad those are there! Sturdy, stable kayak. I give it a 4 only because I've only used it a couple times. Also still need to figure out how to go about using the pole mounts. Good kayak. Definitely recommend it. July 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by dt2 nothing better for the money I got mine 3 years ago on sale. I love this kayak. Super stable yet turns easy and is pretty fast. Mines been thru class II rapids and out on one of the great lakes. No problems at all. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dericks54 Super smooth on the water This kayak was the correct purchase for fishing. I have been searching for a kayak for a month and finally decided on this one. Very sturdy and lightweight. I use it consistent and I love it. July 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by jimmy Great first kayak I bought one of these for on a lake 2 summers ago. After researching for months, this is the one I picked out for the size and weight limit. I am about 6'3" 280. I fit well in this, not a lot of wiggle room, but it isn't too small. We bought another one for my wife as well once she felt how stable mine was. They have held up very well in the couple years of use. I highly recommend these kayaks. July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wil Fun, functional, and stable I live on a coastal river, and so enjoy kayaking a lot. The addition of this yak to our small fleet was very welcome, replacing a sit on model. This yak feels very stable in all the conditions it has experienced so far, including light chop in a fresh breeze, and tracks well, while still being quick to steer. I have not yet had the opportunity to fish from it, but it will need a rod holder mounted forward of the pilot to be very effective, as the surface mounts it has are aft. Overall, I like it very much. July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Josh C. more than happy! Caught a great package deal with kayak, paddle and pfd, around fathers day. Couldn't be happier with the purchase. While the storage pod doesn't seem water proof and the boat itself weighs in at about 60 lbs, over all great first kayak. Tracks nice, cuts through the water and cruises almost effortlessly down the river. June 28, 2014
