I waited and researched a lot before getting this kayak. It works well, I've taken it out a few times as a double, but it is manageable for a single person as well. You must inflate with the gauge and be prepared to inflate a bit more if it's a hot day and the water is cool. The blow up seat back isn't the greatest, as a single i put a small cooler behind for support, and had plenty of room for 2 little dogs. I wanted something I could handle getting into the car and to the waters edge on my own, and I barely can it is quite heavy and awkward when inflated, so I haven't gone solo yet.
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.
We have this kayak under our bed in our travel trailer and it is perfect for occasional use. Two people fit and it is easy enough to inflate and deflate. It is nothing like a real kayak and should only be used in calm water. Having said that, it sure is a lot of fun.
I did my homework (so you don't have to) before buying this yak. I checked out every single fishing kayak in my price range. This yak is 11ft long, 12ft is too big, 10ft doesn't go straight. I got this one $375-ish from Walmart and I use it a few times a week, on the creeks, the rivers, lakes, swamps & the bay here on the Jersey shore. Its light, I throw on the roof of my Check Cruze and take it anywhere. The skegwheel is the greatest. Very stable platform. Comfortable seat, sit it it all day, adjusting it up and down. Holds a ton of equipment. Dry well. Great exercise. Life is good. Grab it.
