We bought two Weber 132 three months ago. We decided to try the sit on top for ease of getting on and off. It is just that! Our primary use is for exercise and a little fishing. We have used them multiple times on rivers and lakes. The Weber 132 for an entry level kayak is affordable, comfortable and very stable on the water. Our friends have tried them and now own them as well. the best part, my Wife and I don't argue over who's paddling the wrong way anymore. Anybody want to buy a couple used canoe's? I believe we are sold on kayaks.
This is a very versatile kayak, with a lot of features. When I say versatile I mean it. my 10 year old can handle it with no problem, as well as myself. its super stable. I can shift and sit in it sideways while fishing. I've seen videos of guys standing in it but I cant (too heavy and my belly gets in the way ha) but someone a little bit more nimble and lighter would have no problem and after some outriggers it would be even better. the rod holders are nice and placed well so they are easy to use. There is a really nice deck on the back for gear. The hull is roomy and could hold a lot of gear in dry storage. Its sealed well. After several outings its dry as a bone, I love the built in scotty rod holder in front as well. It would be easy to mount a fish finder mount in the scotty mount and run the transducer in a scupper hole. I would have no problem with this in a large lake and feel completely comfortable. The shock cord hooks that hold the net can be arranged in a million different ways after removing the net, and the hull is thick enough to add more accessories. Its a blank canvas for anyone who likes to rig up kayaks to the max. At its price point I am not sure it can be beat. Its a great entry level kayak that can get you started and also be used with other family members. The only thing missing is that the skeg wheel could be a bit better. It works but only on pavement, gravel or rocky paths will inevitably cause problems with it, but its weight makes up for it because even someone as out of shape as me can easily carry it overhead to the edge of the water. if you are on the fence....go for it
