Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 318 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Times Completely satisfied and even slightly impressed I was in the market for a well balanced kayak that would be equally good for a casual day out on the water or for long fishing trips without having to spend over $600. I made the decision to buy this kayak 4 days ago after countless hours of research and I've already put over 30 hours on it various rivers, streams and lakes. Overall, I am happy with the kayak and how it's performed every time I've been out. To give you an idea; I am 5'7" at 230 lbs and strong. I have friends with the Eagle Talon, The Old Towne Trip 10 and the Future Beach Trophy 126. All of these kayaks have performed well and we're all happy with them. We've found the 12' kayaks to be faster with more storage capacity but less manueverable which can be annoying in tight spaces. Stability: 4 out of 5.The kayak is wide and stable. I've flipped many kayaks in my day both in error and on purpose and this kayak is not easy to flip. Construction: 3 out of 5. Like many other reviewers, I was surprised at how easily the bottom gets scratched and the foot pedal popped off the track. I was able to pop it back on without much of hassle. I have yet to use the rear hatch because it was a bit difficult to get off and it doesnt seem like you'd be able to safely remove while on the water without pulling over and getting out of the kayak. This is a good sign though! A seal that tight should keep your valuables safe and dry even in the event of a flip. This kayak is on the heavy side weighing around 70 lbs. at 12 ft. long. I have no problem moving it by myself but it is much easier with a friend (like everything in life). Comfort: 4 out of 5. I love the layout of the kayak. It is roomy and comfortable. The cup holders are a great benefit and are located in easy to reach places. If you have back issues you might want to consider bringing a lumbar support for longer rides (3.5+ hours). Speed: 3 out of 5. It is slow because it's wider for stability while fishing but it's still faster than all of my friends kayaks listed above. The 12' definitely cuts through the water faster than the 10' Old Towne and Future Beach. It does track slightly to the right as other reviewers have mentioned. Fishing: 4 out of 5. As a fisherman that wanted a sit-in not a sit on top; I am thoroughly pleased with this kayak. The rod holders are great. They're deep and will hold any size spinning rod. I also fly fish and am able to easily assemble my rod on the water. I've had three poles in the water at once on this kayak. It is easy to transition from rod to paddle by slipping the paddle under the bungee on the front of the kayak. With that being said I am going to modify it a bit for my own convenience. This does not come with an anchor like the Eagle Talon does (which is disappointing). I've hauled in over 15 fish so far (bass, trout, perch and pickerel) without the slightest hitch. Value: Great bang for your buck. This kayak is very versatile and will please fishermen and non-fishermen alike. I did hours of research online and other stores in my area and this was by far the best value for my needs (fishing and recreation). I am very satisified with this purchase and the price leaves room for future modifications as you see fit. May 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by knailgun great for a big guy I bought this because I'm 325# and 6'3' and this is IDEAL!. Tracks very well, not too big to maneuver, and more storage than I know what to do with. It's not so heavy that 1 person can't handle it, but 2 makes it easy. Great for a leisure cruise or even rivers and lakes. nimble for a yak of this size and the value was insane. Had coupons, promos, and sales all brought it to $400.....incredible. I'd suggest this to anyone my size and looking for a solid yak June 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Liebs Awesome first kayak So i purchased this last year as me and my friends decided to get into kayaking and i wanted to be able to reach new fishing spots. Im a pretty big guy at around 290 pounds and i was very discouraged when i first started shopping for a kayak that would be able to support me and my fishing gear, then i found this at my local dicks and did some more research and the 500 pound carrying capacity is what sold me. Ive taken this kayak out about 8 or 9 times and found it to be very stable even with turning around and accessing the built in rod holder. The water proof storage pod is a plus but i believe its more likely meant for stowing your gear and not very practical for accessing while in the water. I would recommend getting some scotty rod holders installed as well if your serious about fishing. Out in the water the kayak performed well, i had no problem keeping up with my friends who all had more sporty 9.5 foot kayaks. I mostly paddled calm waters but i did take it out on the hudson river once and even though it was very choppy and a little nerver racking my first time out there the kayak performed well. The only thing i dont like about it is the material seems very thin and i noticed the floor of the kayak is starting to warp a little but im not sure if its normal for it to flex like that or not, All in all i would say this is an good entry level/ beginner kayak for anglers and fishing in lakes ponds and creeks and i would recommend it to anyone looking for a kayak in this price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ove Awesome Kayak I had never been in a kayak before, but growing up in Norway (the country) I?ve missed the outdoors since I moved to Atlanta, GA. A friend of mine got me thinking a kayak could get me out there again, and trout fishing in the Chattahoochee River was very tempting. I searched the web to see other peoples experience as the large crowd is normally not wrong, but we all know some will not be pleased. The Field & Stream 12 foot Eagle Run Kayak came out with the most comments and the majority where positive; value for money, stable, comfortable seat, spacious, high capacity, handle great, etc?.and I agree in it all. It?s a great recreational fishing kayak made in Thailand. I?m 5?9? and 200 lb and strong built but here are a few things I learned; 1) The yak is heavy, and I could not lift it up onto my GMC Yukon alone. My wife?s Toyota Rav4 was just fine. 2) I bought a folding Malone kayak carrier and are glad I did. Remove/install is too complicated every time. 3) I bought the Aqua-bound 230 cm carbon shaft paddle but the yak is wide and is should have taken the 240 cm. 3) I bought a MTI kayak & sailing life vest, but it is to warm. You will regret it as I and just bring it along. I?m glad I bought this yak and after one hour, I was over the insecurity of overturning. You can wait for sales at Dick?s or just buy it and have fun. You have earned it. October 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by StandsWithABeer Perfect Big-guy kayak I bought this kayak from Dick's a couple of years ago. It has been just right. I am nearly 7 ft tall & weigh close to 300 lbs. This is the one. Its options are outstanding and the construction (aside from having to reinforce the footrests) is good. I'm having fun! :) April 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by mikeythefireman Solid, multi-use kayak I'm 5'11" and 250lbs and I can stand up and move around in this cockpit without tipping. There's lots of room and it's very stable. The cockpit is almost too big. The dash is just out of reach. The cup holders are useless, too shallow to hold a cup of anything. The removable, dry compartment may be useful someday, but the wet well has been hugely convenient for fishing. This kayak is moderately quick and agile, but not outstanding. It's an absolute joy to paddle in. I like to put my feet on the dash and lean back for a slow, sunny paddle. Not only have I recommended this kayak to my friends, we just bought a second one for my wife. October 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by catfishinking great for fishing and very stable I don't know what every one is saying about it being small or shallow or even unstable I'm 6'8 and I fit great inside I have had a three day trip in it and it was great I have tried to tip it and I had to work hard for it to actually turn over great yak and I recommend it to any fisherman/woman November 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bass master Great fishing kayak I've rigged up this kayak for fishing with a fish finder and extra rod holder in front. Now, with three rods and all the room in the cockpit, I can do some great fishing. I added a seat cover with gel for the long haul and keep all my gear in the rear compartment (removed the storage bin). It is light enough to throw on any car and fast enough to get to the holes. I've used it on the ocean (3 ft waves) and in the small ponds. Very stable. September 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by kayaker62 2nd season and going strong First kayak purchased, Started kayaking at 60 yrs. old. Very comfortable, can portage easily, holds gear well. Cracked the lid on pod, my fault, add a little apoxy, good as new. Keep thinking I want a longer kayak but keep coming back to my 12' Eagle, nothing really better. November 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yaker Yaking for days! I must say that I do enjoy this kayak. I have put about 200 miles in the water with it this year so far. I have gone as far as a 70 mile 4 day trip, and had enough room for storage. For as cheap as this kayak it is well worth the money and you wont be disappointed. I have been anything but gentle with this yak, and it has still treated me well. This is a very stable boat where I have been able to stand (even with a few beverages in me). For as wide as the boat is it does track fairly well, but because it sits low you may want to get a skirt for it if there are any white caps out because water will splash in. The seat is comfy for a stock seat and I would not hesitate to recommend this yak to anyone! November 13, 2014
