What experts liked
There are multiple footrest positions for different size riders.
- Kayak Base
The molded kayak has enough room for you to stretch your legs out, and the seat is fully adjustable, so you can find the seating opposition which will be comfortable for those long days out in the water.
- Globo Turf
The Lifetime Angler has two paddle holders and they’re covered with shock cord to secure them. Additionally, the paddle is included for this kayak, which is a great bonus if you’re hoping to save even more money.
- Kayak Best
It has a lot of legroom.
- Cast and Spear
The hull design is one of the kayak’s best features and goes to show the kayak’s design was well thought out. The innovative hull design helps to improve the kayak’s tracking ability while also improving overall stability. Thanks to the chine rails, smaller anglers can stand up in the kayak when casting.
- Paddle Go
What experts didn't like
The Top Mount FIshing Rod Holder can get in the way of paddling.
- Kayak Best
Seats can be uncomfortable after a short amount of time.
- Cast and Spear
While it’s true that this kayak is very stable, it’s also fairly slow, which makes it a poor choice for fast moving water conditions. This kayak has been described as sluggish and a model that can’t handle ocean angling
- Paddle Go
