Rated 5 out of 5áby Mike Great kayak This is an excellent kayak, everything I looked for in a kayak in this price range. It's just enough kayak that one person can handle it (I am male, 6'2"), and it fits on a car rack on a smaller car. I don't see how a kayak can "not track" (they're perfectly symmetrical), and am guessing the people who say it "tracks left" are right handed ? It can't move in still water without another force on it somewhere. The seat & backrest are fine, though a little stiff, and for longer outings I like to put a folded towel on each (much more comfortable, a bit drier too, could stay out all day). It's got a low profile in the water, great colors, sleek design, sturdy construction, very fast with a good paddling rhythm. I got a 230 cm fiberglass paddle (also from Dick's) that's just right for it. It has carrying handles on ropes on each end, but no real notch at the ends to tie onto. I've been tying it on the car rack with side straps and ropes at each end around the handles. Have not used the hatch, but will probably stow things in a sealing plastic bag. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Inverness A solid and stable kayak I already had a Pelican Matrix when I got this one at $100 off. Compared to the Pelican, this kayak is much more stable; I could easily foresee doing some white water in this kayak. It is easily maneuverable, but does not track well. In fact, the moment you stop paddling, it turns 90 degrees. I'd say it's more for running rivers with some waves and current than for long distance traveling. I actually found the seat back to be quite uncomfortable after some time. The watertight compartment, separated by a bulk head is nice. It would be nice to have a smaller compartment and a cup holder. It also lacks a drain plug, which makes it almost impossible to get water out. I think I will have to drill a hole and put one in. It's pretty heavy to handle for a single person. In spite of its limitations, I think it is a fun and nice kayak. September 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby princessnp Perfect kayak I purchased 2 of these beautiful kayaks and found that they are so very easy to use. These kayaks are very well made, fun and offer a comfortable ride. Love them. August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby hbear17 Loving my new Kayak I am loving my new kayak! I bought so that I would have a nice way to relax and have fun and it has really been a joy. I go out own it almost everyday and have a blast. Everything is perfect but I absolutely love the adjustable backrest. Anyways I cant wait for more adventures with my new Perception Rhythm 11 Kayak!!

Rated 4 out of 5áby randers33 Nice, but tracking needs to be better I am new to kayaking; but decided to buy what I wanted since I don't really want to put a ton of money into getting a new kayak every few years. I really wanted to give this kayak 5 stars; I love the color, the water tight compartment kept everything dry, the seat is comfortable, it's stable in the water. Matter of fact, it's darn near perfect! The only problem I have with this kayak is the tracking. If you are not sitting dead center with your knees touching the knee pads to help steer you, it tracks to the left. If you are a seasoned kayaker this may not be a problem, since you know exactly how to compensate for this issue. The poor tracking is caused due to the wide flat bottom, and doesn't have "ridges" in the bottom to make it track straighter like in a Pelican of lesser value. This is truly a river kayak, built for Class I, II, and III rapids. All this being said, I am pleased with my purchase. I have learned how to compensate for the left tracking, by taking a longer paddle on the left and shorter right strokes or two left strokes for every one right. I definitely would recommend this product to anyone wanting to learn to Kayak. July 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Skitian Everything I needed it to be. I literally just got out of the water an hour ago for my first 10 mile trip in it. It was great. I didn't have any tracking issues. My buddy was in the same model next to me. We both had good control through some class ll rapids. The seat is comfier than you expect for the price. We can't wait to take them on some multi-day trips. July 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby KayaKing Solid Kayak Pros- Comportable seat, sleek design, strong plastic Cons- No drain hole, takes a lot of time to empty out water and can be a pain. June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Robert2015 Great kayak for the price New to kayaking - used my neighbors kayak for the first 3-outings and loved it. Our trips are mainly on the Intracoastal Waterway and connecting creeks which are wonderful 4 to 5 hour trips. This is the second purchase of the same brand of kayak. June 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5áby kc80 Nice boat but should have more boat the price. First off if you are in a current this boat does not track well. On slow water it does well. I have came through some slight fast water on the flint and this boat will turn on you when it gets some cross current. Now it looks great on the river and the hull seems very sturdy looks like it will take alot if abuse. The seat is comfortable but the opening is a little tight. 6'1" 190lb. It is not tippy at all and seems like it would take alot of effort to flip it. The dry storage area stays dry. For the 500 price tag it should have a cup holder drain plugs and a paddle keeper. But if you are looking for a basic boat that looks real nice and tracks poorly in moving water this is the one for you. June 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby YakMike Good lake Yak! I just purchased this yak a couple days ago and love it. Cuts well through the water and tracks as straight as you row it. There are reviews that this yak cuts left but it only goes where you paddle it. Your seating position will also determine where the boat goes so scoot over if your yak is drifting to either side. I can't wait to get back on lake Allatoona in GA. Looks great on the water too! June 4, 2015
