Our Ascend kayaks are so popular, we can hardly keep them in stock! And now, the 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FabiusRiverDood Good Decision
I bought this at BPS, Colombia Missouri. Excellent customer service in the Boating Dept. I have owned canoes over the years, and I was looking for something light weight to take fishing by myself. I'm sure this Kayak is no speed queen, but after paddling canoes all these years I felt like I was the lead man in the Daytona 500!! This Kayak handles & maneuvers very well along with being stable. Its not as stable as a canoe, but I never once felt tippy even while catching fish. I do know that I will need to install an anchor trolley because very little wind blows this thing right along which is not ideal when fishing a spot that you want to cover well. I guess the main points to make are:
1) its light weight- easy for one man to pack around
2) It seems very durable-
3) it tracked well for me
4) the rod tender is kinda cheap (I'll add my own)
5) the stern holds a milk crate perfectly
6) i added a cushion to the seat
7) I caught fish- :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by dubcapo Nice way to get off the bank.
I'm one of the few who has a bass boat but wanted something to get off the bank in those areas where there are no ramps.
This kayak was my answer. It has been very stable, I haven't dumped it yet. I'm 6'3" and 120 lbs. My only complaint is that the foot rests don't go back far enough for someone of my height. Not a deal breaker though as I can still stretch out with my legs on the hull.
Good quality for the money in my opinion. Might actually be more fun to purchase the cheaper model and add all the fishing accessories yourself.

by Cubbie27 Great Find!
I bough this Yak a couple months ago and I am really impressed of the cut and frame. Cuts through the water clean. Feels very light with all the upgrades I put on. Thumbs up!

by dp1eld Excellent choice
If you want a kayak this is a great choice! I still need to get use to it but overall it is very stable and the seat is comfy. I'm not a fan of the front holder I'm going to replace it and mount a fishfinder in that spot.
