My wife and I bought this for occasional use on our yearly trip to the mountains. We wanted a tandem kayak and looked online for a used kayak. We are not professional kayakers so we weren't looking for an ultra performance kayak. A lot of the used kayaks online were in horrible condition. The new ones (brand names) were well over $1000. So we found this kayak out our local sporting goods store. We've had this for 3 years now and everything works as brand new. The kayak is 10ft long so it's one of the shorter tandem kayaks, which is a perk for us. We bought seat pads and the stock seat backs work well. As mentioned this isn't the most performance kayak out there, buts it's doesn't cost as a performance one does. For occasional trips to the lakes for fun relaxing floating around the water that doesn't brake the bank...This is the perfect kayak.
The dropstitched floor increases the stiffness of the kayak, such that it doesn't wrinkle on the sides when you sit in it, and is slightly thinner. Seems more durable, too. Less comfortable than the original, feels like sitting on a harder kayak floor. *** , so got to me quickly.
I bought this kayak about a year ago and have been using it ever since. Probably the thing I enjoy about it the most is its extremely comfortable seat. Most kayaks have poor seats that are terribly uncomfortable, but this one is amazing. Recently, I lost a piece that clips my seat to the kayak, so I asked customer service about it, and they promptly sent me a new one at no cost! Very happy with this kayak!
