Rated 3 out of 5 by MTG1 good with flaws I love the size of this kayak. i'm not a little fella and i have no space issues in this kayak. I don't do serious kayaking, this isn't that type of kayak, this is a float down the river with a cooler on the back kind of kayak..... i put a rod holder on mine so i could float down the river, with a cooler, and fish, the only problem i have with this kayak is the flawed seat design, while very comfortable the straps that keep the seat propped are held together by a very cheap plastic connector, which of course broke on my fifth trip down the river. leaving my basically laying down for the rest of the trip, i replaced them with higher quality connectors and have had no further issues. i also worry about the way that the seat connects into the kayak, i understand that it's designed to come out and be a beach chair (which is awesome BTW) but the slots that it runs into seem suspect, time will tell if i'm correct on that. Overall i would say it's a good entry kayak for a slightly larger person who wants to float down the river with some friends. but just be aware of the seat issue and be ready to fix that May 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveyT Fantastic Kayak I purchased this boat three months to fish the marshes and backwaters that you can't get a full size boat into. This kayak is stable, tracks well and has enough storage to carry as much gear as you need. I installed a couple of rod holders and an anchor trolley on mine and with all the room behind the seat, I can carry a large cooler and a gear box. The seat is very comfortable, I spend hours in it without cramping or soreness. The paddle holders on each side are convenient and the adjustable foot pegs allow you to change leg positions in seconds. It is so stable, I can stand up in it to fish. Since I bought this, my full size boat has yet to see water. This is a great kayak. I highly recommend it . You won't be disappointed. April 21, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by dpaul69 not as good as previous model I own 4 kayaks with this model being the latest that I purchased. I have found that this model does not track or have the ease of paddling unless you have weight in the hold behind seat. Pull out seat seems cheaper. I have no complaints with the previous year model of same kayak. This current kayak seems to be designed for those who are looking for a party or going on long excursions where coolers or gear are necessary, not for those who are relaxing with kids on the water for a few hours.I am looking to buy a 5th kayak but will have to look at other models first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Liggonro D-10 Sit In Kayak Good purchase Kayak is well made and comfortable. Bought two kayaks one for my wife and one for me. I bought the d-10 vs the F10. Both kayaks work fine and meet our needs. When paddling they seem to track to the right and you have to really focus on paddling to keep them straight. Could be user error rather than the kayak. They are great for lakes, ponds, and rivers. Have to check your weather, high winds with waves could present a problem as you are so low to the water but that is to be expected. They cut through the water easily with very little effort. We are inexerience kayakers and have really enjoyed them so far. On advantage is the take out seat, only kayak that we could find that offered this type of seat. Most had a foam pad glued to the bottome with an adjustable back. Not I'm not sure how long this seat will hold up with repeated wear and in addition the plastic slots the seat fits in to hold it are a little suspect. But overall satisfied with this purchase for the money. If you need a skirt, hard to find one for this kayak as the opening is real large. December 3, 2012

Details:The D10 and FS10 have different carrying weights and maximum load weights. Since the FS10 has a higher maximum load and a higher carrying weight, is the FS 10 hull thicker?
A:Just bought a "new" D10. The hull is different from the FS10 currently offered. The version of the D10 I have is a "tunnel hull" design that is also found with the FS12 and the lower cost A10. It is best to see them in person!
The FS10 hull had lots of warping in the 3 showroom examples I looked at. Some of the D10s also had bulges but not as bad as the FS10.
The D10 and the FS12's "Tunnel Hull" seems a little more rigid due to the engineering geometry of the double arches (tunnel hull) on ether side of the keel line on the bottom of the plastic yak. The thickness of the plastic seems the same just a difference in design. I wanted to get the FS10 but $100 difference and the hull made me choose the D10 design. QA/QC your yak before you take it home!
I will be testing mine out on the Current River next week downstream of Montauk State Park in Missouri.
Hope this helps.
A:We have both a D10 and FS10. They seem about the same weight but i think the D10 seems geared for smaller size people. The FS has a wider cockpit and more leg room. My husband is 6'3" and does not fit in myD10. I am 5'5".
A:The D 10 kayak is a basic design with fewer extras, the FS 10 is outfitted with more gear and capability. If you are really interested in fishing off a kayak, get the FS12T sit on top version, much easier to handle on the water, more stable, handles 25 more pounds of gear. The longer hull design tends to let you spend less time correcting for direction than a 10 foot model. The sit on top design is also much easier to get back on should you capsize, also no bailing it out like a sit in type.
