Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bot! I have 5 of these and can't wait to get number 6! This a great boat for lakes and class I and Class II rivers. Its very easy on new paddlers and great fun for experienced paddlers. It tracks well and easily carries enough gear for over-nighters. Add a half-skirt and you're ready to enjoy a relaxing day on your favorite creek or lake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This boat can really move Bought this kayak last fall, new at paddling. Have taken it out many times, I love paddling this boat. I wax it between trips, last time out was making "rooster tail" behind me. Very stable, well constructed good buy for this type kayak. Haven't been on fast water, mostly slow moving and lakes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice kayak Bought this used but it is like new. I like it. It's comfortable and I was able to keep up with people in kayaks longer than this. It doesn't track as well as a longer kayaks but it tracks well enough. It's good for flat water or slow to moderate moving streams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features! I bought his a week ago and haven't used it yet, since it's winter, but I am DYING to take it out on the river.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kayak Adding to my review below (and agreeing with Bill's), I just took this kayak on a week long trip to Owls Head Maine, and it performed perfectly in the ocean. Going out from Crescent Beach (sandy shore launch, friendly waves outbound, muscular 2-4 foot swells, whitecaps, and bracing winds inbound). It loved the swells, but it was a challenging afternoon. Did about 5-6 miles, stopped at a couple islands. Hardly a drop in the cockpit, despite hitting waves at all angles and sea spray over the bow. I will add a triple folded long thick beach towel to the seat, make a paddle leash, and a kayak leash. I will add two dowels, about broom handle width, 3 feet long, for pulling up/off rocky launches & landings. I will probably also find some way to mount an extra paddle (single or double) on the inside of the hull. Had no kayaking gloves, so used a pair of canvas gardening gloves, with rubber friction dots. A regular pair, and one with fingers cut off for warm days would be good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice looking, solid boat READ THESE REVIEWS. I should have. If I realized this boat tracked horrible, I wouldn't have bought it. For $500 I expected a boat that paddles better than, or at least as good as my $250 Sun Dolphin. I'm tempted to leave this one in the garage and start using the Sun Dolphin again. This boat might work well for lakes or ponds, but it will beat you up doing any distance on a river. I've had 7 different kayaks over the past 15 years. The Rhythm is the best looking and poorest tracking boat out of all of them. 15 years of paddling different boats and then having to change just to paddle this boat because it won't track? I don't think so. It might be usable with a skeg, but that would require a little more investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty fun kayak if your technique is good Just had mine out for the first time in a fairly slow moving river. I've read reviews both here and on other places that say it always wants to turn to the left. I found that if your paddling technique is fine the boat tracks well. I suspect those that say it turns left are right handed and use a little more power during that side of their stroke (right side of the boat). I tried exactly that and yep, it most certainly turned left, I did the same thing with my left side and had it turning right. The other thing I discovered is you do need to make sure your body is centered in the cockpit and that you are sitting straight up. Lean to one side and the boat tips into its secondary stability and wants to turn that way. Considering the design of the hull, that is exactly what should be happening. The bottom is essentially flat under the cockpit, has a deep see both front and rear and hard chines on each side going up the hull which is where the secondary stability comes into play.I came from a very basic Pelican Trailblazer 100 which is a super stable boat so at first this one seemed a bit tippy to me but once I found my balance point and remembered to keep my hips Loose (hula hips LOL), that went away. In roughly 15 minutes I was already used to this boat and wasn't even thinking of it any longer. My girlfriend now uses the Pelican exclusively and she loves it but is a little jealous now that she has to paddle harder to keep up with me. By myself this will not be a problem, but with a slower boat, I've had to slow down my paddling.The seat fit me great, it took no time at all for me to find the best setup for me. I like that it has small hooks on short bungees to strap the set back down for transportation. This is a great thing of you are not going to be using a cockpit seal while transporting the boat. I have one on order because I do travel some distance to go kayaking at times and without the cockpit seal, it kills gas mileage. I learned that will the Pelican because it's cockpit is huge so it like a big air brake on you car, especially if you mount it cockpit facing up or on J-Racks. Mount it up side down and it is better, use a cockpit seal and it's the best compromiseBasically the boat is very reactive and can easily be turned, stopped or accelerated quickly and also glides well. Be mindful of your technique and this is a fun boat and will do most anything you ask of it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
