This is a solid kayak and a great value. It is extremely stable, I can stand up in it. Not confident enough to fish, but with good balance I'm sure you could. It does lack storage (no hatch) or rod holders. However, I like the open deck. More choices and flexibility. The tank well is large for a 10' kayak, but this is due to its width. It also had a large weight capacity for a 10' kayak. However, Bass Pro lists 350lbs on its website. The boat list it at 325 (still good for its size). It also tracks well for its length, however it lacks glide after your paddle stroke.
The negatives are the seat. The bottom slides out from under you while in it. If it would stay put it would be a decent seat. I'm sure Velcro or something could cheaply fix the problem. I plan to replace it with a higher back option. Also the kayak has side trays for storage by your thighs. This was a selling feature for me. But they give me less room & dig into my thighs. So, I'm unsure if there a negative or positive. For a smaller frame person they maybe great. Also it lacks side carrying handles and due to its width hard to manage with one person. You can do it, but a side handle would improve this.
Overall a great kayak for the price and I am satisfied with the purchase.
