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.
I've had this kayak for about a year now, caught lots of fish out of it. I live in Florida and alligators are everywhere, so tipping over is the last thing i want to do= very sturdy for a 240lb man. I'm more than happy with this kayak for the price, I lost the back rest somehow (i haven't a clue) and reached out to customer service and they are sending me a new one at no cost!! Literally the 1st time I've ever got something for free. It really means something to me, 1st-built/made in the USA, 2nd- take great care of the customer. I will definitely recommend Lifetime Kayaks and will purchase another Lifetime kayak. Thank you Lifetime, from a truly satisfied customer!!
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.
i have been watching many reviews on this SE370 pro kayak and they all have been positive. i hope that my feeling will be mutual...will return when i try it out next weekend...
