Tracking & Weight

Had a Tarpon 120,140 anglers loved both of them but were too heavy as I got older. 120 ultra light easier to handle. First difference was it didn't track as well. In fact, I had a rudder installed which makes all the difference. Had to get use to the limited storage but OK with the trade-off vs. weight. Have been in lakes, open water, Gulf of Mexico feel safe and comfortable at how well the 120 performs. I use the Thule Hullivator to mount kayak on car expensive but well worth it.
