I have been following the FS12T for a couple of years. I didnt buy one because of the problems. I bought a Heritage instead. Last month I was looking at the new redesigned 2014 models, and Ascend has listened to complaints and redesigned this into a really great fishing boat. The scuppers are well fit, the seating area is redesigned so it doesnt hang, the deck area under the seat is beefed up for us "Big Boys". After seeing the refit, I was able to demo one in the pond outside my local store. I was hooked, it didnt track as tight as my Heritage, but it was shorter and wider. I could stand up on it, and I am a "Big Boy". I have had it in the marsh, the lake, and the river so far with no issues. Now I am planning a BTB trip this weekend. I love this boat, and thanks for listening and redesigning this boat!

I owned a couple of other low line fishing Kayaks before I sold them and bought this one. This is a Great kayak for the money. I put a rope on it and can stand and fish in calm water. It carries all of my gear an a full size igloo cooler if i want. Tracks well, seat is comfortable, and I am never sitting in water. Dry hatch does leak, so clear silicone all the hatch edges as soon as you buy it. Best Bang for the Buck Hands Down!

I went to Bass Pro and bought this kayak mainly for fishing and hunting out of for waterfowl. The first time I took it out to go fishing I got back to shore and emptied out about 4 gallons of water. I went home and filled the hull with water. One of my scuppler holes were leaking pretty bad. I called Bass Pro back and they said they would exchange it. The exchange process was easy enough. My second boat has been performing perfectly. The dry storage space is not dry. The bolts that hold the seat in bent and rusted very fast. I can stand up on this boat very easily. I am about 5'9 and 180 pounds. Cant wait to try it out for hunting! Plenty of storage space as well.
