The OK Frenzy is a good example of why you need more than one kayak. It is not designed for long distance flat water paddling like you might do on a lake or saltwater flats. You’ll wear yourself out trying to keep it heading straight. If you need a kayak for stalking red fish, the Frenzy is not for you.
Where the Frenzy shines is on moderate whitewater (say class II up to mild class III) and in the surf. Its short size and rockered hull make it easy to turn, and it rides up and over waves very easily. It's also a good choice for smaller paddlers and kids. Just keep in mind the hull is fairly wide and smaller paddlers may have trouble reaching the water.
The Frenzy has limited storage options and limited weight capacity, so it's not the best choice for people doing multi-day camping or those that like to load up on gadgets. Larger paddlers may find the seating area a bit confining too.
I have 2 Frenzies and both have stood up well to abuse. The hull is stiff and not particularly prone to punctures or cracking. Scupper holes are not vulnerable to rocks or other hazards like many other kayaks in the OK line up.
The Frenzy has been a good, no frills kayak. Great for getting kids involved in kayaking, and a lot of fun in the surf. Used for the right purposes, you’ll be happy with it and the price won’t break the bank. I give it 7 out of 10 because the fact is, there are better general purpose kayaks on the market the will fit a wider range of uses much more effectively than the Frenzy.
