Ultimate 14.5 solo

Drifts sideways, but slows the drift. I fish most of the time standing up, I enjoy the "hunt". I like the open cockpit design, easy access to equipement and easy to rig. Needs a rudder more than most kayaks, stop paddling and it goes left or right. The seat is the most comfortable on the market period. The ability to stand and stretch lets me fish all day. 2 hours was my max in more conventional kayaks. Just comes with age.

Best 1st experience kayaking I could have imagined,

I had never previously kayaked before but wanted something small and light to be able to broaden my fishing horizons and chose the 14.5 coming across a closeout sale. Even on a windy day, I wouldnt hesitate on taking it on the small lakes and local river with how stable it is. Rigging options can reach as far as your willing to let your imagination take you. I thought it was a crazy idea to stand in a kayak so I had to try it myself and its really no different than standing in a small boat. It is unbelievably comfortable having the feeling of relaxing in a lawn chair the whole time while fishing. The option of having it mounted in the track or up on the gunnels with the optional seat riser makes fishing even more comfortable. I spent several weeks researching kayaks before making a purchase and I have no regrets with getting the Ultimate 14.5. Stable, very spacious and it cruises right along, even upstream in decent current on a river.
