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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Craig B Excellent little boat!
Bought this a few months ago, 10' with 3 seats, for fishing with grandson. This model is extra stable, great for flat or ripply water, lots of room for your fishing stuff. Make sure you get a leash for your paddles!!!

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laura77 Great Stability!
My husband and I rented the Sport Fisher Kayak during our summer camping trip. We wanted to fish in the middle of the lake instead of the shore so we thought we would give it a try. We have been wanting to purchase a recreational boat of this type and thought renting first to try it out would be a good idea. I was very hesitant about getting out into the middle of the lake and was worried about tipping the kayak over with myself and my husband riding tandem. I could not believe how stable this kayak was on the water. My hesitation quickly left when I easily maneuvered myself into the seat without any tipping at all. My husband stepped into the kayak from shore easily without any tipping or rocking. We are both older, very large people and even though we are young at heart, we are more cautious than we use to be so our safety is very important to us. I was pleasantly surprised at how secure we both felt maneuvering in the water. The seating was very comfortable and the assorted foot wells allowed us to maneuver ourselves on the kayak comfortably and securely without any rocking or tipping, perfect for fishing while casting or reeling in fish! We had so much fun paddling around the lake that I had forgotten all about fishing that first day! We were out for hours and it was great exercise! The wind picked up and the water got very choppy but we had no problem paddling back across the lake through the waves. The kayak was fairly light and the both of us could carry it easily from the shore to our little Toyota truck where we loaded it INSIDE the back bed. I would defiantly recommend this kayak. We were both very impressed with the quality and performance and we LOVED our time out on the lake in this kayak last summer…. can’t wait to own my own Sport Fisher Kayak this summer!

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Nice Kayaks
Bought two kayaks, both had large gouges in them.
Took two months to arrive.
I will never purchase from HD online again.
Kayaks are rigid, stable and track exceptionally well for a vessel that wide.
