Just bought this and a FS10 Titanium about a month ago. Came to us shipped via UPS. No problems with delivery. Been out a couple of times on them. Love the comfort of the seat and the overall handling the kayak is very easy to manage. We are very happy with this kayak.

This is a great kayak for someone who wants to fish, recreational paddling on lakes and rivers(no whitewater of course). I bought a extra seat and put it in the back for my daughter to sit in........... works great. This kayak has exceptional room. My daughter has enough room behind me to fish, stretch out or anything else a mischievious 6 year old wants to do. I am 6 foot tall and have more than enough room for my legs. Of course this is not a kayak that is going to win any speed contests but it is very stable and tracks good. This is worth every penny because you will spend at least 3 times as much for other brands with poor quality. Love, love , love this kayak.

Ascend D10 Great Purchase
After agonizing over which kayak to go with I chose the Ascend D10. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I am new to kayaking and I feel this is perfect for a beginner. I have rented a few times and this is by far the best/most comfortable kayak I have used. I tracks well and is very stable. I am 6' 230 and I was able to put my 50-60 pound dog in the back without tipping over. It was a little unstable with the dog because she moved around a little, but I never felt in danger of tipping. My first trip out we went 10 miles with no issues. I really like the high back removeable seat vs. most other kayaks with the lower seat back rests and the space behind the seat to store coolers etc. The negatives are the placement of the drain plug, and the cockpit may be a little to open for rougher waters. The drain plug is definetly manageable and I don't intend on going in to rough water so this is perfect for me. Just ordered another one for my wife she loves it as well.

After taking these ( we bought 2 purple and red ) out multiple times now on small creeks, big lakes and rivers, I am very pleased to say we are happy with them. ALOT OF ROOM for gear. great speed and the track very well. Not for white water but if you like to fish /hunt or do overnight/camping floats these are where its at! I can carry this boat fairly easily for a distance to put in water when necessary. Very easy to get along with. Not to mention if tipped they WILL float and its hard to top them. Seat is removable for hanging out on shore. Cannot go wrong with this purchase.

Hi, I carried my D10 upside down on my car on a trip. I had it tied rather loosely on each end to the bumper and a strap around the kayak through the car doors. I had the strap about 24" from the bow end. Now the seat will not fit into the slots because the kayak is spread wide. This should not have happened but it did. Do you have any ideas on how I can correct the warp? I'd appreciate your suggestions. Thanks.
