Rated 5 out of 5 by Randy Excellent kyack
We bought two and what a great time. The kyack is comfortable to spend the day on the water. The only thing I would change is the seat. Back is great but it would be more comfortable with a gel seat. Also the sales help we're very polite and very helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keith4fishing my first kayak
this was my first kayak I got it for my sixteenth birthday I have had it out about five times and while I was out I found that it is very stable it turns great and i have not tipped over once. While out one time I had two friends one hanging off the front and the other off the back and i could still turn without much problem the hardest thing was moving forward and backward cause of the drag they made. I love this kayak and hope to have it for a long time to come.

We were fortunate enough to walk in the store and find this kayak on sale for 329.00 making it a great deal and allowing us to upgrade to a much better paddle. We had been eyeing this kayak for a long time and couldn't believe the sale price on it and even though we're headed into winter, we couldn't resist. My husband tested it on a lake today even though it was snowing because he couldn't wait and said it was very stable, and very easy to move around. Lots of storage space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Motrout Great for Waterfowl Hunting
I bought this kayak in the camo version about a year ago and used it extensively throughout last season and getting ready to start year two. It has performed very well as a stable marsh hunting platform and has enough capacity to comfortably transport me (155 pounds), a golden retriever (she sits between my knees in the cockpit) shotgun, ammunition, lunch, etc. There's enough room inside for a dozen or so lightweight decoys or I can tow a plastic sport sled that floats with up to 30 decoys. The extensive bunjee cords on the hull work great for fastening camouflage material. I rigged a couple of fast grass door panels to further hide the cockpit and removed the factory seat in exchange for the lower profile provided by a folding seat cushion. With all this gear, I can paddle swiftly and quietly through the marsh, hide effectively, and have a lightweight "layout boat" that is easily loaded in the back of a pickup or even on a car roof and stores nicely from some hoists in the garage. Nice product at a good price.

by BassCatcher My first Kayak
After ALOT of research and combing the internet for the best kayak i can get for my money, I ended up buying this kayak at a clearance price. I lucked out when i went to my local store and saw the same kayak i saw like a year ago still on the racks and heavily discounted cause it had some minor damage. Well i picked it up right on the spot, took it out on the water that friday and have neen going out to my local lakes every weekend. My first hour on the kayak was spent just getting my balance, now that i have the hang of it i feel very stable in it. I never feel like im going to tip over if i lean to either side, i can get going pretty fast but your not going to win any races. I might add a rudder in the future cause it doesnt track that great either but nothing that isnt managable. Ive had mine for over a month and have gone out half a dozen times, i bought a seat pad cause the seat bottom gets stiff fast. My foot pegs have held up good and so far nothing has fallen off, i fit pretty good in this kayak and im 5'7 230 lbs. I would buy this kayak again

Easy to maneuver in mild river and worked well in a moderate river rapids as well. Carried all my fishing gear plus me at 220 lbs. I keep my gear that I want to use in front with me. If you attach a cord to all (like a train) you can push it forward and retrieve it as you want. Room to keep my lunch and extra water behind the seat. My fish net and bait on one side of the seat and drink on the other. Enough room! Keep my dry stuff in the pod behind me. At 69 years I don't want to keep getting in and out. Drafted 4- 6 " of water, got stuck a couple times but with the use of my 4' walking stick pushed myself off the shallow spots. Never had to get out. I think you could tip over but I felt pretty secure in it. Would recommend it to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Late Starter 60 Great kayak for 60 and older or younger :-)
Turning 60 I was looking for a way to really enjoy the outdoors. The Field & Stream 12' Eagle Run was perfect. Lots of room, love the storage pod, stable. Only two times I flipped I was getting in from bank, my fault. Tracks well and I can carry it myself to load and unload. Have been 4 out of last 8 weekends. Looking to purchase cockpit skirt for winter trips.
