The eXtreme handles extreme conditions very well

I've paddled and fished out of my Malibu eXtreme for 2 years and it has turned out to be a very tough kayak. It is my favorite for days when I know that I'm going to be going long distances in open water because it is very comfortable, tracks very well without a rudder while maintaining maneuverability, and is faster than many other sit on tops I've paddled.

One aspect that I like about the eXtreme is its unique profile. Like many other Malibu Kayaks models, the eXtreme's low profile sheds wind very well. This is one of the features that I think truly sets the eXtreme apart.

The low bow also tends to punch through the top of large waves, but in my experience, this only makes it more stable in rough conditions because the kayak sheds water very well. I think that having water come over the bow is disconcerting to some, but I've become accustomed to it and find I prefer this over having a kayak with a high bow profile that catches wind and waves.. I've never had it take on much water even after many hours out on rough water - certainly not enough to be concerned about.

The eXtreme is very stable and a comfortable fishing machine. It incredible space for storing gear, and I've never felt that I've had to leave anything on shore because the weight capacity is higher than other kayaks in its class.

The eXtreme is an incredible kayak for trolling. I've paddled miles out in Lake Ontario and in several of the Finger Lakes in Western NY to troll using Dipsy Divers.

Great kayak but,

I love this kayak and bought for fishing florida back country but I realized that it was not the kayak to fish the ocean and rougher waters. It outfits great and is super comfortable
