I thought I'd love the Tarpon 120 Angler based on the reviews, but after paddling it for two hours I took it back to the dealer and traded it for a Manta Ray Angler.
I found the seat totally unacceptable. First it collapsed backwards twice (ever try paddling from a horizontal position?), and once I got it to stay upright, I found the seatback to be very uncomfortable. It was like leaning against a 2x4 all the time I was in the water.
It is a great looking boat, and tracked much better than the 11.5 foot Ocean Kayak Angler I had previously. But it was just too uncomfortable for this 57 year old body of mine.
