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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jaycon43 Upset at first
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vulcan22255 Great kayak!!
Great kayak for the money. I am a beginner kayaker, but my friends told me about the Ascend FS12T. I'm 6' tall and weigh 240 lbs. Had little to no water inside the kayak when I pulled it out of the water #had about 2 gallons overnight due to bad storms that rolled through the area though#. Tracked flawlessly and cut through the water perfect. Forgot to put the scupper plugs in the back and got my tackle bag wet #oops#. Would definitely recommend this kayak to anyone who wants to start or upgrade their current one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by idahoboy pretty good
its a good kayak to take on lazy water, you will fill it with water if you go threw any type of rapid because the front of is so low, and the water proof compartments don't work, but id buy again im 6ft 4in and 300lb and it holds me just fine,
