How thick is the plastic on this thing? I'm thinking about getting one for my son but I'm tired of the flimsy stuff that big box stores sell.
PhillipAndWorld
PhillipAndWorld - 3 years ago
this kayak didn't feel cheap to me at all. the plastic is pretty thick and the build quality is excellent. for $300 or less for this kayak it doesn't get better. that being said i haven't actually felt or been on one of those more expensive brands like hobie or pelican but i can tell you that this is a good kayak. perfect for beginners like myself.

I have this kayak and use it for river fishing and it works great. I am 6' and 160 lbs. Very stable. I also have a bass boat and when I am going to go fishing on a lake I use it but for ponds and moving water river fishing this works good. I would say that I have found two negatives. #1 It is slower than some other 10' kayaks. The Heritage and the Prescador 10 footers seem to go through the water better. #2 I also like to do some Level 1, 2 and 3 whitewater kayaking. This kayak does good for the Level 1 and 2 but with level 3 you end up getting a lot of water inside your kayak and the two aforementioned kayaks drain out MUCH quicker and don't seem to take in as much water to begin with. When I would hit a nice sized wave of water going down the river it would fill the boat immediately and then it would stay that way until well after exiting the set of rapids making it very difficult to maneuver and giving you the feeling that you were not going to make it through. I got to the point where I was using my paddle to scoop water out before the next set of rapids. It was always stable and I have never turned over in this kayak in my many different kinds of trips but the other kayaks seem to be faster and took on much less water in white water conditions.

Funny thing. A lot of people bash Lifetime Kayaks. Some say Emotion kayaks are better. Guess what. Lifetime makes both of them. Lifetime bought Emotion a few years ago. The 8 foot Emotion is almost identical to my 8 foot Lifetime. Scupper hole placement and rear deck design are the biggest differences, I believe. Both are good starter and small lake fishing boats. Especially if you are a small to medium size adult.

I got the same kayak, at the same store, for the same price, at around the same time.I haven't outfitted mine much yet, for now, just getting used to it, and having fun.My paddle choice from Cabela's was the Carlisle Magic Plus fiberglass for $99.99.They were on sale for $79.99, and I had a gift card plus used my Cabela's Club points, and left with the paddle for $37 out the door.

+PhillipAndWorld even with huge waves your fine, I fish in the ocean and bays where big boats and water skiiers ans jet skiiers think its funny to plow me with their big waves :) yes of course I get wet BUT water flows right out of bottom and def don't feel like its gonna flip at all, she rocks but stays strong :) love it

+Michael Palmer they are cheap because its coming to end of season, and sports has to move around their inventory, if you go in begining of season they are $400 plus they get cheaper towards end of summer, they are still $411.00 here at our sports

and you don't want the pegs for feet that move and adjust because they suck, they get rusty and stuck and sometimes actually slide on you and allow for water to get into haul after while, these r the best foot pegs for yakkers :)

this is actually a really well made yak and should not be called the poor mans cause it outshines alot of the others on the market outside of the bugger names like hobie and jackson, though my friend has a hobie and this handles as well if not better on stability :) this yak has been great to me and I bought my fiance one because of the dependability and stability for fishing :) lifetime is the company that makes this yak and they are a big time plastic business and this yak is made of the best plastic out there for yaks and if you go into the stores and feel most of the yaks r softer and thinner, this yak is a beast and makes for a great fishing yak :)

Yea someone should tell this kid that LIfeTime is a great great Kayak. It is as stable as any of the 1000 dollar kayaks, tracks as well as any of the 1000 dollar kayaks. It is a bit more bare bones.... Someone should clue this kid in. You can stand on that Kayak....

100% agree!  This is a solid kayak.  That is a great price and that outshines a lot of other kayaks that cost double.  Solid fishing platform for sure.  Very stable.  Not the fastest, but it tracks very well.  I just don't think on can flip it.  It is perfect for a new person to kayaking or for one who wants a super stable fishing kayak.
