by fisherDan927 My first kayak.
This is my first kayak, I shopped around. read reviews. looked at kayaks on craigs list, But although other kayaks were more expensive they were similar in size and amenities, this as stated is my first so I have no set point to reference alls I know is this is a great kayak...I have one arm and a modified paddle and can keep this kayak tracking straight, it also doesn't take much effort to turn. Bottom line I love this kayak so much I bought one for my wife, I've equipped both with anchor trolleys so far but will be adding gps fish finders in the near future...one thing though as stated in another review the scupper holes have over spill from the molding process and needs to be reamed out, I used a dremil tool on mine or the scupper cart wont fit all the way threw which is bad because the top of the scupper pipe will torque the inner hole and possibly tear through, it was an easy fix, but be extremely careful! Other than that I can't complain I'm having a blast gonna take it to the inner coastal around mosquito lagoon soon...Love kayaking!

by 2050z Pure fun on the water.
This is my first kayak and enjoy being out in the water.
Learning the do's and don't in such a small boat. Be very organized and limit your gear load. The seat cushion does the job for a few hours and then I have to get out and stretch my legs.
Recommend extra bungee cord up front and an anchor trolley. Make and use leashes on everything you want to keep. Almost lost a fishing pole when I was trying to unhook a fish. The leash allowed my to recover it.
I added a Garmin Echo 150 fish finder and it works great. I would recommend this kayak to my friends.
I would have given this a 5 but the issues I stated prevented it. Also while draining out the water out from inside the hull I have the tech just left all the cut plastic for the rod holders and some trash inside. QA team needs to inspect the inside better

$500 is a great deal for this yak. It's comfortable and easy to paddle. All three rod holders come in handy while fishing. Rod tender is nice because it can help hold your rod when you tie on different lures. More storage than you need. It can get you into spots boats can't go and best of all it helps you catch more fish. I fish this thing in salt and freshwater without any problems. All in all a great deal in my opinion and Iam happy with the purchase

The Ascend it awesome. It's fast; carries the load it states It can and turns on a dime. I would recommend to anyone. (only drawback is it takes two people to load on top of a vechicle)
