Ascend's ultimate kayak for anglers, the FS128T Sit-On-Top comes packed with features specially designed for fishermen. The angler-specific design starts with an advanced Tunnel Hull design with a wider transom and flared bow sections for displacement distribution that increases primary and secondary stability. This hull design delivers the stability needed for stand up fishing while also providing solid tracking and easy paddling while moving. The FS128T features a solid casting platform for stand up fishing with a pull up assist strap to help you switch from sitting to standing fishing. The removable 360 degree swivel seating system combines 3 height options with a padded and adjustable, ergonomic seat you can swing to face the direction you wish to fish. Designed for anglers, this kayak features a fully adjustable rod tender, 4 flush mount rod holders, and molded rod tip stagers in the bow-side deck to hold rods lying prone in the kayak. Multiple storage options include weathertight storage hatches with deck plate access in the bow and stern, a watertight personal hatch with deck plate near the seat, and molded storage areas with bungee in the bow and stern. The FS128T also offers a medium rectangular storage hatch with watertight cover plate in front of its seat and a larger version right behind the seat. Deep molded storage trays in the sides accept all kinds of fishing gear and tackle, while the molded dash provides catch all trays, a cupholder, and recessed areas for tackle trays beneath the seat. Adjustable foot braces provide a comfortable base while paddling for anglers from 5'2" up to 6'2". The threaded and sealed drain plug allows you to quickly drain excess water, while the 8 self-bailing scupper drains maximize draining in rough waters. The 1-1/2" scupper drains also accept kayak transducers for fish finders (sold separately). Waterproof Butyl is applied to 100% of the components installed to help maintain weathertight storage and further reduce water intrusion. Kayak also features an anchor trolley, pop-up paddle holders, and performance grip handles. Made from the highest quality virgin high density linear polyethylene. Length: 12' 8". Width: 33". Weight: 84 lbs. Weight with seat: 96 lbs. Maximum weight capacity: 350 lbs. Made in USA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RetCsm moneys worth
This purchase was a result of a lot of research, as a busted up Vet, this was my best choice. I
I put rollers in the back of my truck and loading is ez.
The boat goes out at least 2 times each week. There is no problem with water in the hull via the hatches unless they are not sealed properly. The paddle needs to be a bit longer to get the proper depth on each stroke.
This craft has most of the up grades one would want to add for fishing and the room to add a live well and bait tank. It handles well with low winds and mild conditions. It is not for rough water or high wind. I use this boat in open lakes,swamps and gulf coast salt water. I have caught red fish, blue fish, black drum and yellow tail with a few sharks. This is one fun fishing machine and I would recommend it to any one that wants to fish from a kayak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gmitchell183 Great Value for the money!
I purchased this kayak as my first one. I had 3 things in mind, waterfowl hunting, fishing and beaver trapping. I took this yak out over the weekend for waterfowl hunting and was not dissapointed! It performed exactly as I needed it to. Can't wait to fish out of it! The only problem is of course that the 2 center storage hatches leak. I solved this by just purchasing a few feet of rubber gasket material, removed the factory stuff (very cheap!), replaced it with .190 gasket material, tested again and NO MORE LEAKS. It was an additional $3.27 upgrade!
I'm adding a trolling motor next!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by weaponsloader Big upgrade
I upgraded from a 10 foot kayak to this. I wanted a yak that I couold camp from. I haven't camped from it yet but plan to in the future.It is very stable, plenty of room and the seat is very comfortable. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is water pools in several places plus if you are paddling fast the scudder holes make a lot of noise. But over all a pretty good boat.
