Rated 5 out of 5 by LindsayM MORE THAN HAPPY WITH THIS I bought two of these last year for my boyfriend and I as a surprise birthday present. I was, and still am more than pleased. I am writing a review because it was the reviews that helped me make my decision to purchase this kayak. I have been kayaking for 15 years but have never owed one. Over the years I have rented and borrowed almost every type of kayak there is. This is a great kayak, especially for the price. You can't beat it. This thing just glides almost effortlessly across the water. It's comfortable, roomy, and easy to control. I highly recommend this product! May 2, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by QueticoJo OK for the money An OK boat for general use on CALM water. Handling is good and kayak is stable. OldTowne Vapor spray skirt fits well. My main issue is the open storage compartment in the rear. BassPro sells this as an advantage for carrying a 5 gallon bucket, plastic crate, etc. That's OK if you are in calm water, it's not raining, and there aren't any waves. Otherwise, the compartment fills with water and you have an open live well with 50 pounds of water sloshing around behind you. That is annoying when you have to keep stopping to empty the water. BassPro should offer a water tight cover for this compartment on ALL their sit-in kayaks like most other brands. March 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Edenseeker Best Value out there The new open area behind the seat is awesome !! The older style had a molded area for 5 gal bucket OR milk crate for storage/fishing gear BUT this new design i can put both of those items back there with room to spare if i am fishing. Can't wait to go on a camping adventure as i will have plenty of room to store my gear. LOVE IT. Fits me very comfortably and I am 6ft 160lbs. Tracks great and draws so little water i was amazed as i skimmed over very shallow logs I have been researching for months, all types and brands of kayaks, but after all was said and done, i kept coming back to the Ascend line of kayaks. Yes there are yaks MUCH more expensive but not any better. I find it hard to beat the value of the A10. July 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kea480 Great Price Was looking for a kayak that had room for my dog to take on our day trips. The new A10 has a large enough area for me and the dog. A little tipsy with the dog in the boat, but so far no tip overs. Me and my wife found this a awesome kayak. And Great Buy! April 29, 2012

Details:I see the weight limit for this Kayak is 300 lbs. Has anyone ever loaded up to this limit, or maybe even gone over it? How did it handle when you did?
A:I would not recommend going over the weight limit. Overloading a kayak on a trip can cause the kayak to tip over when going around sharp turns. It is important to think carefully about how much your kayak can handle and where you will be using it, because both of these things will make a difference as far as whether or not you will have any problems. Thanks
A:Personally, I am not sure because I am not sure what you mean by in the way. I am not sure what you will have no your kayak or any factors that would be in the way. If you are located by one of the Retail Stores you might go and test one out and to find the proper location for your rod mount. Thanks
Details:I live next to the ocean and i wanted to know if sit- in kayaks can only be used in lakes or if they can be used in the ocean?
A:You may use a sit-in kayak in the ocean, however, you miay find that a sit on top kayak is a better choice. Sit-in kayaks will swamp if enough water enters the kayak, if you planning to kayak in an area with unsteady waters I recommend investing in a sit on top as these will not swap if excess water enters the kayak.
Details:I am 6'3" and use a lot of leg room. In addition I would like for my 5 year old to be able to sit in it with me at times...can I do this?
A:Get the D-12. I'm 6' and have plenty of
room. Personally I wouldn't recommend
a second passenger in a sit-in. But you
could fit your 5yr old in the D-12 for sure.
A:I'm 6'0 ft and have no problem. I probably wouldn't put a 5 yr old on my lap. I'm new to kayaking but from what experience I have so far, I think it would be too unstable.
A:I'm 6'1 and I would think you might be able to do this with the A10, but not the D10 with the foot pegs. The cockpit is pretty open so that isn't really the issue Just leg room but as I said, without the foot pegs that come with the D10, you would probably be ok.
A:No, the A10 does not, but it would not be hard to add them if you wanted to.
A:No foot pegs on the one I just bought, but have since added them.
A:No. Kind of wish it did. One of the draw backs. Legs get a little stiff stretched out all the time.
A:No. It does not come with foot braces.
