Ascend FS10 Sit-In Angler Kayak - Camo
Our Ascend kayaks are so popular, we can hardly keep them in stock! And now, the Ascend® FS10, our feature-packed kayak designed for serious anglers, has been enhanced in multiple ways to make it an even better value. It starts with an advanced hull design that utilizes an extended keel with performance rocker and strakes to deliver the superior maneuverability, tracking, stability, and easy paddling when you want to get to that special spot quickly. The large open cockpit offers easy entry and exit at the shore with little restriction of movement while casting and retrieving considering the 31" width. The improved DLX removable seating system allows for all day comfort on the water or allows easy removal of the comfortable padded steel-frame seat for a quick rest ashore. The screw out deck plate with integrated weathertight storage keeps smaller items high and dry. Dual flush mount rod holders make transporting rod and reel combos easy, while the fully adjustable, light tackle rod tender holds your rod while fishing with 360º of horizontal adjustment and vertical rod tip adjustment. Two 4'' cleats provide an easy anchor for a minnow bucket or fish stringer. Dual bungee paddle keepers hold your paddle securely while fishing. Bungees over the built-in multipurpose sternwell and bow help lock down your fishing gear while moving from spot to spot. Deep molded dual cup holders and two large catch all trays in the cockpit make it easier to keep the gear you use often close at hand. The threaded and sealed drain plug allows you to quickly drain excess water. Molded-over rubber grip handles at the front and rear make carrying the FS10 easier. Made from the highest quality virgin high density linear polyethylene. Length: 10'2". Width: 31''. Cockpit: 37-3/4'' x 22''. Weight: 57 lbs. Weight with seat: 62 lbs.

All I can say is that compared to all the other kayaks out there, this is absolutely the best one for the price. From the moment you sit down on the extremely comfortable seat, you will never regret purchasing it. If that’s not a major selling point for you, then consider that it is made by Tracker Boats. A major boat company made this kayak, so you know you are getting a great dependable product.
If your kayak is 30" or wider, then a 240 cm is recommended due to the longer "reach" but you still have to consider whether it's sit-on-top or sit-in.
If a sit-on-top, then a 240cm is recommended due to the extra distance to the water and the need to have your paddle angled properly for true tracking. If using a sit-in, then your height does come into the play as the longer paddles will make it more difficult for shorter paddlers to properly stroke from a lowered seating position.
