The best kayak on a budget is when you find a good/excellent quality kayak on sale! The performance and build quality difference between these Ascends and say a Ocean Kayak Prowler 13 is big. I've found the Prowlers on sale/closeouts at $499. (West Marine) and they are tried and true and if ever a problem, OK stands behind them. I've seen these Ascends at Bass Pro and they are made of a lighter plastic, especially compared to Mailbu X-13 or Wilderness Systems Tarpons. As with any kayak, paddle before you buy.

Looks like you bought it just a couple of weeks before me in AC. Sorry to hear someone stole something off your truck. My son and I both bought one and we love it. Have had it on several different lakes, did an eight hour trek down the Neshaminy creek and have had down at Shark River Inlet several times. Handled great in choppy water. Got it all rigged up with Garmin Striker 4dv, anchor trolley, and added new Scotty paddle holder, and several rod mounts. Great kayak at a great price. Looking to do a set up video soon. Best of luck to you.

Macho Yak TV - 4 years ago
Definitely a great kayak but you get very close to the same features virtually for around $300 less than the vibe. It obviously will vary depending on personal opinion bit in the 500-600 dollar range the fs12t in my opinion is unmatched.

ZEUKI1 yeah budget for a person my age (15) is like a pelican storm 100 se used with diy modifications. But it gets me across the lake dry so it's fine.

+ZEUKI1 Haha "Budget" is subject to discretion. Everyone budget is different but in comparison to most quality kayaks out there (hobie, wilderness systems), this is a very nice one at a "budget" price line. Nice channel by the way!

+You Can't Polish A Terd Awesome I would check out the 2016 Ascend fs128t if you could afford it they just came out with it the other day. it retails for $799.00 but its a beast of a yak. If You Cant afford that one then the fs12t is still a really sweet yak.

+wisconsinbassfishin FS12t here. Would have gotten the FS128t, but its a lot heavier so it would be hard to load/unload in my truck solo. Both are great choices imo!

I've had mine for a year now.  The first thing I did when I brought it home was to silicone all the hatch openings and screw attachments.  No leaks.  Then I got rid of the stock rod holder and mount as they are notoriously poor quality equipment.  I installled two scotty mounts with rod holder extensions and Scotty rod holders.  The boat tracks well enough but...it's a tank.  This is a heavy yak with a flat bottom.  It's wide and that makes for a stable yak but you give up speed.  That's a fair trade in my opinion but others may disagree.  The big cup holder and molded trays are well within reach but they fill up with water only a few minutes after paddling.  Speaking of paddles, invest in a lengthy, quality paddle.  Shorter paddles won't work for this yak at all due to it's width.   I bought a 92 inch No Limits paddle from Academy and the difference was a big relief on my shoulders.  While I wouldn't recommend this yak for BTB fishing, for deep or shallow lakes, the flats, and calm water, this yak is hard to beat for the price.

+Macho Yak TV Normally wouldn't fit my budget but I'm doing the Dave Ramsey way, I got a part tiime job at wal-mart pushing carts.  I'll have the Outback after 3 months of work. All I have to do now is pick the color.

+Macho Yak TV Coudln't have said it better.  I am currently looking into a Hobie Outback to give my shoulder a break but the Ascend is - in my opinion - the best available for the price.
Macho Yak TV
Macho Yak TV - 5 years ago
+VTV SD Very true. I believe you could do a little BTB as long as its flat. You would just have to perfect conditions. The cup holders and trays do fill up with water but honestly I halfway expected that simply by looking at it and due to the fact that it was a kayaks generally get water everywhere. However, Im working on a simple drain system that will take care of that. Thats one of the greatest things about this yak, the customization is A. easy and B. endless possibilities. theres SO much that can be done to this yak to outfit it. The Beauty of the whole thing is the low price point allows you to have that extra money for any simple issues that people may find with it, along with the extra for customization. Thanks for watching!
