I picked up the kayak used with a paddle for $200. Added a back band rather than a full seat as you sit so deep in the kayak that is all you need. I've had it on rivers and lakes. I agree with everyone who said the kayak is fast and stable. I'm 6'2", 230 pounds and have no issues fitting in the kayak. Very comfortable for extended paddles. I use scupper plugs so the ride is dry. Only drawback is that is has very little rocker so the waves will roll over the bow.
If you can only have one kayak but you want to do moving water as well as flat water, plus maybe an ocean then this is the kayak for you.
The quality is top of the line. Mine is 10 years old and looks brand new. Only other item I added were side carry handles as this makes it much easier loading into J-rack.I just purchased a used Renegade for $200. It is in very good condition and came with a paddle. Yesterday was the first day out on the water with it. Spent about 4 hours paddling around Tampa Bay and the Hillsborough river. It was a breeze and didn't have any problems whatsoever. As everyone else has mentioned it's really fast for such a small boat. The size is great and allows me to easily load and unload it from the car's roof racks without any help. I'm pretty light, about 150lbs at 5'11" and the boat had no problems holding me up, was very stable and easy to maneuver.
The only thing worth mentioning, is when testing the kayak in the pool, the scupper holes let in a bit more water than I would like. This was cured with some small foam baseballs, about the size of the foam practice golf balls people recommend for scupper plugs.
If you happen to find one of these and the prices is right, grab it up. You won't regret it.
