Local dealer is discounting blemished 2015 Tarpon 120/140 15%. He says the Blem models are just cosmetic such as color blend and structurally their are no issues. Warranty is only for one year instead of lifetime warranty offered by WS.

Anyone have an opinion on purchasing Blem kayaks. Dealer has non blem(1st quality) discounted 10%.

for 1 year warranty vs lifetime I would personally want much more than 15% discount. I would think 30% would be more realistic: i'd gladly pay 15% more to secure lifetime warranty.

Good deal for someone IMO. 1 yr should show issues if present.

I wouldn't have a problem with it but I would try and get at least 20%

Obviously the manufacturer thinks there is a problem with them...if its just a color issue, then why is the warranty only for a year?
