Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sailer Best Kayak Ever
This is my third kayak. I have an Old Town "sit in", and a three person inflatable Sea Eagle. I've also used "sit on" Ocean kayaks. This one is by far the best for me. There are two snap in paddle holders, fishing rod holders and drink holders. It's easy to paddle and tracks well. What really impressed me was the stability for a kayak. I'm 66 and can stand on it! You can sit sideways and it doesn't tip. There is a large screw plug to access the inside of the boat. I've used it about ten times and have found that the fittings are water tight. There are drain scuppers so there is no bailing. These come with scupper plugs. The built in handles front and back make it a snap to load and unload. The capacity is 3 people or 500 pounds. When I ordered I was concerned that the seats would not be comfortable. I was greatly surprised. The seat backs are 4-way adjustable and you can get a very comfortable fit. The value for the money is really great. I don't use my other kayaks any more now that I have this one. Great product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by fisherwoman Would never buy again
Received the kayak, came only wrapped in bubble wrap. One of the paddles was broken. The only way to get a replacement paddle was to return the whole order/kayak.....really! Also the paddles that the kayak came with wereblue didn't even match the camo kayak like shown in the picture. Will never buy online again. Lifetime was terrible!!!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Not good as a tandem
I bought this to be used as a tandem with myself (5'-10" 175 lbs) and my daughter (5'-4" 110 lbs). It is a bit cramped as a tandem (expected) but a bit more than uncomfortable. The kayak has 3 seats, the front and rear when used as a tandem border on painful and the center to be used when paddling solo. There are 2 large bumps that stick up on the front and rear seats that jab you in the behind and cause bruising (picture attached), you start to notice feeling uncomfortable in 1-15 minutes then pain and numbness after about an hour. These are not present in the middle seat. Also, as other submitters have mentioned there is only 1 handle on this kayak, given the wider stance it is awkward and can be difficult to lift and the drain plug is on the same side as the handle so draining it when it fills up is a chore. I guess if you are a person bigger than either of us it would make a decent single person fishing kayak as it would be roomy and it is very stable and tracks well but it is awkward when lifting onto a car roof rack by yourself. However, due to our size I decided to purchase 2 separate Redfin single kayaks and I will be returning this kayak.

My ordered Sport Fisher just arrived after close to 3-week S&H wait. I unwrapped it and found three defects - two if them would cause it to leak at the aft hatch and drain plug. The opening for the drain plug assembly had been cut about 20% too large and the edges showed around the housing. I don't understand how QA did not catch this. The aft deck at the storage hatch was pushed inward causing the edge of the hatch to bend at the rivet. Now I have to wait weeks to return it and have a new one shipped out. The season will be over and it will end up in basement until next year. Very disappointed.

Very stable, my son and I love it. Very shallow draft, less than one foot. This worked great on the low river.

This is great for fishing but very heavy to transport. Glad we got the wheel carrier to go with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kelli Perfect for a family
We bought this to take our 2 young children on and it was perfect. We were all able to enjoy the kayak and the built in storage under the seats was so helpful! It's lightweight and easy to paddle

I have used this kayak for several years and found it to be very stable and sturdy. We use it on Bear Lake and other waters for recreation and entertaining the grand kids.
