I paddled one at an ACK demo, very comfortable and really stable, no problem standing in it. Plenty of room on the deck. Its on the heavy side though. The wheel in the keel makes hauling it easier. Good yak.

I demo'd it cause I loved the looks of it on paper ... the deck layout is awesome, the high comfy chair, etc. However, when I paddled it I didn't like how the stability and tracking felt with the chair in the high position. It also felt like the chair could break at any moment based on the quality of the parts. Basically, I really liked sitting in it on dry land but didn't like it as much on the water. I ended up going with a Jackson Coosa HD. Paid a little more for it but fits better for me personally.

A friend of mine has one and loves it. That seat alone is worth the purchase. I have a Feel Free Moken. Very stable and sits high out of the water. But it is heavy and a bit slow. Feel Free is a high quality product.

I tested the Feel Free first, wilderness ride 115x second , and 2 of the Jackson models third. I went with the Ride 115x all the way. Durability, stability, weight, and accessory options of this yak was, FOR ME, a no brainer. Big plus, I "try" to stay USA made. Feel Free is not USA made.
