I've purchased the Trophy 126 on a whim, to get into the water. Normally I'd research. But this kayak has been great on calm water, and in class 1 and 2 rivers. I've exceeded the weight limit with camping gear and I had no problem carrying me to camp. Max.250, loaded approx. 285 lbs. Some problems have been known with the larger version but none with the 126. Bulkhead remained sealed, and with the right paddles, and technique, it's fairly speedy. Future Beach recommends you don't take rapids, but I have. It's tough, and I've seen other brands with cracks afterwords. If you camp there's no substitute. It held my tent, sleeping bag/pad, lantern, clothing, food, gun, and many extras. No problem.
