Rated 5 out of 5 by kpet Love this kayak
Bought two of these kayaks 2 years ago and love them. Husband and I are mid 50 ' s and can easily get in and out. Tracts straight and turns easily. Great to fish from. Stable even in choppy water. Not super speedy like longer kayaks but good enough and much easier to carry and load. Handles make carrying and loading a breeze. Writing this review while waiting for hubby to hurry up so we can get out on the water. K peterson

We own 3 Future Beach Trophy 126 Kayaks. We are coming up to our 3rd year using them and we LOVE them. We use them on the lakes and they are so easy to use. We had never owned Kayaks before and these are so easy to handle and get in & out of. They are NOT tipsy at all. My husband actually stood up in his and paddled to prove how sturdy they were, he's no spring chicken 40yrs. old. I do NOT recommend standing in them ever, but it proved his point to a friend who owns another brand kayak that is very tipsy. Future Beach kayaks are made of very strong material that is nice and thick and will take a beating. My only complain is over time the rear compartment area allows any water you get inside the boat ,due to water paddle fights out on the lake, to leak into that back compartment the seal with clear caulk simply doesn't hold over time due to stepping on the floor getting in & out. You could always reseal it or use water proof bags. We would never own another kayak these are the best for a family! Looking to purchase another, soon AD 86 which is 8'6", found it on Future Beach's website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DeathScouter Stable and no regrets buying!
Bought a set of these 3 years ago for my son and I and not disappointed at all. They track straight, the hull design makes them very stable (I've stood in mine) and there is plenty of room for gear in the "dry bays" and under the bungee nets. There are SOME accessories available on Future Ocean's website, but not a lot. The "dry bays" do NOT keep things dry. The rubber lids do a good job of keeping most water out, but they are not water-tight (but I don't know of any 'yaks that actually are) so you must still stow gear in dry bags. We've used them in level 1 & 2 rapids and open water. As far as the 2 types of water go, this is a darn good "one size fits most" model. It's also light enough that 1 person can lift it and place it on the roof rack, but solid enough to be sturdy for years of use.

The thing I like about it is it paddles straight . some of the lighter kayaks turn when you paddle, this one stays in a straight line and it is very fast on the water. i was impressed with the quality of the boat.

This is my first kayak and it is every bit as fun as I expected. It cuts through the water and is very stable. I was out in it one day this summer and it was very hot outside, I got out of the kayak and swam and was able to get back into it fairly easily. I still haven't taken it fishing but that will happen this spring. I will be buying a second one for my teenaged son this Christmas. The only thing I don't like is that the rear compartment is not sealed from the rest of the craft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by B smooth stable good storage
This was my first kayak so I was really unsure but this thing is great handles really well. Im 5'11 180lbs can get in an out very easily no problems been out at least 10 times couple hours each time I can move around put my legs up top an chill out if I want I can reach what ever I have in the rear hatch without to much trouble. Its not as fast as the swifty 9.5 that I also bought so I can bring a friend but its much more comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsRossley Would buy again
We had been taking about getting kayaks for 2 years, then after we got married, decided we would purchase them with the money received from our wedding gifts. We had talked to the same sales associate the previous 2 years, and then made sure we were able to talk to her again, and make the purchase from her. We were told from one associate, "she is not a kayak-er...she watched the same video as I did" but to my husband and me, her knowledge was more than just watching a video. She answered our questions, made sure we had everything we needed, and even gave us extra info and guidance on the kayaks. The Trophy 126 is stable, I feel safe in it...I can even rock from side to side without feeling like it is going to roll or tip. My husband and I got matching ones, but mine will be decked out in pink. We are planning on fishing with them eventually. My husband took our oldest son (15) and went out on the river, they had a blast, and know he wants one also. Absolutely love it...we went out Sunday, Monday, and I wanted to go tonight, but we didn't get to...this is a very addicting sport/pastime, and I just want to be able to have all my housework done so we can be out on the water....

I recently bought this Kayak with high expectations for it's performance. I was not let down. It tracks straight in the lake and in the river. It is a very stable boat. I took it down the Taccoa river about a 6 mile trip it was very comfortable. The dry storage in the front kept everything nice and dry. I love this boat.
