Ascend FS10 great yak for a great price

After much consideration, studying reviews, and looking at numerous fishing kayaks, I settled on the FS10. I have extensive experience with canoes, but little with kayaks, other than whitewater crafts. I am a 60 year old disabled vet with significant back injuries. I needed something I could handle, that was stable, and comfortable for my back. I have used it numerous times now, and have been totally pleased. It is very stable, very comfortable even after hours of use, and a total pleasure to fish out of. It tracks well, especially for a short boat. I find the conveniences are well thought out, and usable. As a fly fisherman I was concerned that sitting low would be a problem, but to my surprise, I had no difficulty. Last let me say the hull material is very tough, as I said I have a lot of experience with canoes, and like materials. I have used this kayak in very rocky shores and waters, but have only notices minor scratching in the hull. In my opinion one gets a lot of boat for the money with the FS10.
