        Comments about WILDERNESS SYSTEMS Tarpon 100 Kayak:

        It's easy to carry, I basically load it on my truck and try to get out and yak at least 3-4 a week. It's really easy to clean, whip down with water once I get it home. I'm not an expert but I have two kayaks thus far. I actual purchased a Malibu Stealth-9; based on a friends advise. I can only speak for me I love my wilderness, it tracks better, it's faster, lighter, it's my favorite kayak thus far.

            Comments about WILDERNESS SYSTEMS Tarpon 100 Kayak:

            So far I have taken this kayak on lakes, rivers and streams. It is extremely stable, moves through the water with ease and the seat is very high quality, extremely adjustable and easy to adjust while sitting in it. It seems like this boat is designed for anglers; it's very wide for a kayak and has very generous storage space in the back, there's ample room for a milk crate and more.
            My only real complaints are that for being relatively short, the kayak is still pretty darn heavy, and the tracking could be better. It's not terrible but even when high angle paddling is prone to not go in a straight line. Despite that, it moves through the water with ease, so overall I am satisfied.
            I got this kayak on sale but after looking around, I think it's the best you can get in this price range even at full price.

            I haven't taken my kayak in the ocean yet so I can't speak to how it handles there, but this kayak is better in every way compared to every kayak I've ever rented for sea kayaking so I suspect it will do well.
