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.

by taylort01 Excellent Beginner Boat
I purchased this kayak back in January, but hadn't used it until this June. I've taken it out on 4 trips already and I absolutely love it! I've since "customized it" with extras, etc. It's a great little kayak for the beginner angler. Nice and roomy cockpit with nice features for storage for rods and tech. I especially like the dry hatch and the molded crate holder. Great stability and tracks fairly well especially for a novice paddler like myself. *I would recommend a 240cm paddle length for the clearance of this wide boat.*
I've upgraded the rod holder to a Scotty holder & mount and actually installed it on the starboard side near the front of the cockpit. Eventually, I'll install an anchor trolley, but it's not completely necessary for me as of yet. I'll probably do a bit more modifications as well as "winterize it" for fall and winter fishing. I really like this little boat and I think the size, price and features are near perfect for someone looking to get started in kayak fishing.
I'm so impressed with my kayak, that I'll be purchasing the D10 for my lady to accompany me on my fishing outings! Thanks BassPro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cellis A product that is what it claims to be
As most reviewers I studied other independent reviews for weeks, looked at countless kayaks, and kept coming back to the FS10. I am a disabled veteran, and 60 years old with significant back injuries, therefore a comfortable seat and stability were a real concern. I have extensive experience with canoes, but little with kayaks. I chose the FS10, and absolutely no regrets. It performs as it was presented by Basspro, and I am totally pleased. A couple of notes worth mentioning, first it is very stable, and totally comfortable even after hours on board. I love all fishing, but fly fishing is my passion. I had concern that siting lower would be a problem casting, but to my surprise, it was no problem at all. The craft, and its amenities are well thought out, and convenient. One more thing worth mentioning is the toughness of the hull. Jagged rock and gravel is the norm in my area of central Alabama, and after using a few times I have yet to see anything other than very minor scratching. The last higher end canoe I had would scratch badly in the same conditions. If you are considering this Yak, you want be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mindwarp Absolutely love it!!!
Like many others that finally decided on the Ascend FS10, I did a lot of research homework and read a lot of reviews. Let me tell you, this is the absolute best decision that I made!!!
I picked it up on a Saturday morning and had it out on the lake by that afternoon. It handles far better than I expected. I pointed it in the direction that I want to go and it glided through the water. We can’t forget about the seat….by far the most comfortable Kayak seat I have ever sat in!!!!! I spent a few hours out on the lake fishing and when I got up my back side was not sore at all.
Let me clarify a few things: I am a shorter guy (5’3” / 180lbs). I read some reviews about this kayak being a little wider and that shorter people may have a harder time with it. I never once had a hard time controlling this kayak or using the paddles. I decided to go with the 240 paddle size. Bass Pro was out of the 230 size or I would have made the mistake of buying that one. The 240 size was just perfect! Remember, I am only 5’3” so the 230 size should have worked for me. However, because the kayak is slightly wider, the 240 worked much better.
In short, I absolutely love this kayak and I am also going to go back and buy the D10 as well for my wife. I would highly recommend the FS10 to anyone looking for a kayak or a good fishing kayak!!!!

by Maineshipbuilder Great for Heavyweights
I have fished out of several kayaks but wanted a smaller one to keep in my truck for after work. I am 6'1" and weigh 310lbs. I need a weight capacity you seldom see in a small kayak. This is perfect!!! Comfortable!!!!!, roomy!!!!!, safe, and has all the amenities you could use in a fishing platform. The foot rests could be further forward and it is a little heavy but these are easy to overlook with all the positive attributes it has!!!!
