The new A10 and D10 hull is flawed in design! This is the new a10 and D10 kayaks with the totally open area behind the seat.
I spent about 4 hrs yaking down a lazy river. I had fun in my new yak. Came home to clean it up. I was washing it and turn it upside down to wash the bottom. Where the seat legs rest on the bottom of he hull is dented out bad in two places! instead of the bottom being smooth, it has two big lumps in it! I went from liking this kayak to wishing now that i had never bought it.
It is so bad that I will have to heat it with hot air gun and reform it. I will have to reinforce the floor where the seat legs sit on the hull floor or it will do it again. A 3/8" 15" x 15" piece of plywood placed between the legs and the hull will do the trick to relieve these pressure points. Who wants to put wood in their NEW KAYAK! I will look for some thick plastic instead. I am convinced that anyone at my weight in these kayaks(A10, D10) will have this same problem. I weigh 215 lbs. This is the only thing i don't like about this Kayak. Other than this it is good and i like the openness behind the seat. Just please redesign the floor BP! So proud i didn't spend another $100 for the D10 and have this same problem.
I've read that the older model A10 were the same as the FS10 hull. Man i wish the still were, my brothers FS is great.
I haven't read anywhere about this problem from other reviewers, and i read alot before I bought. Maybe people aren't as ticky as me an want to wash the bottom of their hull.
I hope this helps anyone looking for info. If i had known this i would not have bought this model.
Has anyone else been having this issue? Please post your findings here.

I researched fishing kayaks for almost 6 months before settling on this model and I couldn't be more pleased. Love the open cockpit design! I bought two, one for me and one for my son. We use them to fish mostly ponds, reservoirs and small lakes but we've gotten them out on slow moving rivers as well with no issues.
We picked up some of the side mount rod holders from BPS and they fit perfectly on the inside lip for the dash. BAM! For less than the amount of sales tax now they're fully set up for fishing.
Compare this to other brands that run $700.00 or more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindsayM MORE THAN HAPPY WITH THIS
I bought two of these last year for my boyfriend and I as a surprise birthday present. I was, and still am more than pleased. I am writing a review because it was the reviews that helped me make my decision to purchase this kayak.
I have been kayaking for 15 years but have never owed one. Over the years I have rented and borrowed almost every type of kayak there is. This is a great kayak, especially for the price. You can't beat it. This thing just glides almost effortlessly across the water. It's comfortable, roomy, and easy to control.
I highly recommend this product!
