Rated 5 out of 5 by Specklefinder27 Best Kayak on the watere I've had mine for about two months and have over 200+ hrs on the water with it. This is the best kayak I have seen out there. I sit on the top seat and paddle and it tracks great for me. I don't use the bottom seat for much except a town and any others random thing I have with me. I actually stand up and paddle sometimes just like a SUP. Very very stable. I have moved from front to back of the yak often. Never felt like I'd tip. I was in 25 mph wind today and spun around a few times but never felt like I'd fall in. Extremely fun yak. Scupper holes are deep enough to keep water from coming in. Even in prett good size wake the holes just spit minimal water. Every other yak will envy you as you float by standing up catching all the fish. January 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wilderness1971 Waited too long to purchase this Striker Purchased this Striker during the Thanksgiving holiday and had it shipped to my home. Delivery was through ABF Transport and the driver was awesome. He helped me carry it to my garage where it sat until yesterday. Bright and early yesterday morning I set out to see if my back could take the setup. I am 5'11" and weigh 255lbs. I have experienced lower back pain since football and sitting on or in most anything only last for 30 or so minutes. I can say that at about hour 2 I had to remind myself that my back was not hurting. I paddled about 3 miles and had zero pain. I had loaded the yak up with all sorts of item I did not know that I did not need. Totally love the second level of seating. The yak felt completely stable at both levels. I noticed that if I dug in hard on the paddle the tracking would stray. But if I kept with smooth soft strokes it would glide without tracking issues. I think a good many people are coming from longer yaks when they complain of the tracking. At 255 with another 30 lbs of junk on board the water did not push up through the scruppers. All was good. After about an hour I was comfortable enough to attempt the stand. The strap worked good to give me mental support for rising. I do not think it really made a difference what so ever. My biggest struggle was to sit down after standing. This was more mental also. All and all I totally love this big beast. For the money, you cant beat it. The one I ordered arrived with an 1 anchor, 1 Scotty, and the anchor trolley already attached. I will most likely buy a high back Harmony seat but as she floats she is fine. I highly recommend this Perception Striker to anyone who loves to fish or is not comfortable with some of the other, more normal, less stable sit on tops. Trust me, you can not tip this yak unless you want to. My other yak is a Wilderness Tarpon 120. I will be choosing this Striker over the 120 because I do not need to choose what I should take with me on the day trip. With the Perception Striker 11.5 you can take it all without worries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by justemily Excellent sturdy fishing kayak I love this boat! As a beginner I felt so nervous on my first kayak. The ocean kayak I was on tipped me out twice in a river. This tri hull allows for a crazy amount of security. You can lean , reach & stand. I am over 300 pounds and I wanted a boat that I could depend on to hold me & my gear, with no problems. You can not beat the 500lb weight limit! I can throw a leg over, fish and move around. If I ever want I can add a trolling motor and still have plenty of cushion. Now instead of watching from the sidelines I can row with my family. I love the color, I paddle right into the Lily pads and cast out. The camo green blends well and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. This kayak has allot of self draining holes, so buying plugs can get pricey. I haven't found one negative aspect of this product. There were issues with shipping because I was emailed a ship day and kept waiting. Dicks does not in for you that the shipping company would call to set up a delivery. So because I do not answer unknown callers my delivery day was put off over a week, until I called them and drove to Philly for my boat. We recently took our boats up the Broad Creek river fishing & paddling. Seeing wild life and plants very few people explore, no crowds, relaxing. It was awesome!! Now I created a fun Facebook page to explore our area by kayak. If you considered this boat, buy it! I have not tipped and I've been crashed into by my kids, struck by a angry 24 inch carp and a mad beaver! It's stability can not be matched! September 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by chuck I feel like I'm in my favorite lounge chair, hooked for life~ Don't want to sound like a broken record but the only complaint I have about this sucker is also the tracking.... That is something I'll be able to deal with tho as I don't think I've ever had this much fun fishing before. Stealth is the name of the game and this thing has all the comfort to me of my living room, plenty of storage space, stable, light weight as far as I'm concerned, and just lets you go places you normally couldn't. The only regret I have is that I don't have as much time to use it as I want to, if I had my way I'd be in it every day..... I did add an after market seat too and it is like riding in a Cadillac.... Couldn't be happier about the purchase!!! July 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by KenandBeck Well satisfied with my purchase. This is my first kayak. My daughter and I both wanted one to fish from. We found the unit to be relatively easy to paddle but hard to keep a straight line. We have not fished from them yet as we are improving or navagation skills. It is a bit heavy but very stable when I stand in it. Looking forward to spending a lot of time on it. June 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by justanotherjim great all around fishing kayak this is a very stable kayak,I got this during the winter and waited until i had it out a few times before i wrote this. this is a wide fishing yak and tracks like one, just as many others have wrote about, you wont be the fastest boat out there but you can trust you will get there safe. so if your a bigger person and you dont want to spend twice the cash to even come close to the 500lb capacity or get a much heavier yak, then this is worth looking at. this is a hard one to roll over from the lower seat but the upper one is not to play around on until you practice where the tipping point is(and i have been), I'm 6'3" 270lb and its got lots of room to stretch out you legs, a smaller person could dance around on it. plus at only 65lbs i can put it up on my min-van easily even after a long day fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Willy Great so far I recently bought this kayak because it looked very steady on the video. My first time in the water I noticed the tracking wasn't the best but the kayak is very wide so that was expected. When I stopped padding, I would start to turn. I used the stand assist strap and stood in the kayak (I recommend this in shallow water with no current) it was awkward but with time it will be easier. Two things that amazed me was I expected my back to hurt after two hours of padding because the lower seat hits low on your back however the way the seat is made makes you sit more upright and my back didn't hurt at all. The second thing was to see how stable the kayak was. I'm 6' 250lbs and I swung my legs off the side and held them above the water and leaned forward to see if I would tip over. This kayak tipped to the side but did not roll. I was impressed with how stable the kayak pontoon platform is. It has met my expectations. June 3, 2015
