    Having read EVERY review prior to mine, here is my take for what it's worth. After watching numerous kayak fishing videos on the internet, I decided to buy myself a kayak. I've had this yak now for 3 years & wished I had thought of it when I was a kid. I bought this specific kayak because of the "pros" I have listed (I'm sure I've neglected to mention a few other reasons). Yeah, it's not perfect, hence the 4 stars, but I didn't spend $1,000 either. Note my "cons." I didn't buy it for exercising; I didn't buy it to go fast; I didn't buy it for it's looks; I didn't buy it to compare myself with other kayakers; I bought it mostly because I can take it out of my van without blowing out my back & drag/carry/cart it into areas where people wish they could fish at a fraction of the cost of other kayaks. I am 5'5", 170lbs. & have no problems sitting comfortably in it or lifting it (though it is just under 40lbs.). Once in the water, I spend most of my time anchored with my legs hanging over each side (it takes the stress off my lower back). I just put on my headphones, turn on my music and relax while I fish. Can it get any more glorious than that? However, I strongly, strongly recommend you DO NOT buy this kayak if you are over 250lbs. or taller than 6 ft. It just may be too uncomfortable or unstable. Although I listed cons, they REALLY DON'T pose much of an issue for me in particular. Though, having a bigger deck would allow me to get the skies, pikes, & kings completely outta the water. Nevertheless, I chose to sacrifice size for portability & inexpense. *Note Pictures Below* After doing much research on how to rig a kayak for fishing, I added two anchor trolleys (one on each side), a scotty rod holder (on the top of the deck), a deck mount paddle holder (on the right side), additional pad eyes (to secure items onto the yak), a crate to hold my fishing gear, a small shovel (to help reposition the kayak after I shelf my paddle) & 3 additional PVC rod holders attached to the crate. I've convinced others to buy this same exact kayak & have helped them rig it up for fishing too. It's very easy & you can creatively customize it to your likings (have fun doing it). I've even put on several fishing/outdoor decals on my yak. This has been, without a doubt, the best investment I've ever made for any hobby I've had. It has allowed me to catch some amazing fish in areas so isolated & tranquil. It gives fishing a whole new meaning. If, for any unforseen reason, I had to buy a replacement kayak, I would ABSOLUTELY buy this same exact one!!! Hopefully this review helps you decide & hopefully you find the same benefit in this yak as I have. "A bad day of fishing is always better than a great day at work." Go buy yourself or someone this kayak.

    maybe good for a kid or a small adult. I am 6'0 and 197 and this thing felt very unsafe in florida. Kept thinking I was going to be gator bait on this thing. I have several kayaks the larger grey 10 foot lifetime fishing kayak sit on top is nice but not this one. I would only suggest this for a smaller person or kid and even then questionable feels like you are paddling a plastic table.

        Bought one for my wife just for occasional tag alongs. The first time we used it, it took on over a gallon of water after an hour on the river, plus, it is super slow! We took that one back and exchanged it. The new one at least didn't leak. I took it out to try it and it will wear you out going upstream. We will be returning this one and upgrading.

            Good price to get out on the water. Very slow. Not good for long journeys. A lot of wobble in directional control while paddling. I weigh about 155 pounds 5'6", good fit, but maybe a little bow heavy. For the price, I can have some fun on this kayak.

                  At 60 yo I am still active but wanted a manageable kayak. This is perfect in that sense. I can lift it onto my compact car or enclose it in our van. It can be dragged about w/o damage to it or me :) Though is could be improved by being a bit narrower (to glide smoother) I am not in a big hurry; just staying active. I am buying a second 1 for my wife, or visiting family. Thus far it has been an awesome purchase for Florida's rivers, streams, & springs.

                    • Flat Rivers

                    Comments about Lifetime Lotus Kayak in Blue:

                    Very stable, not likely to tip. Not super quick, but it does move along. Tracks reasonably well on a quiet river. Only complaint is the strap seat that comes with the kayak. Kept slipping down my back, so it never really provides the support I need. My back hurt!So... my solution was to order a high back seat with cushion. Still awaiting delivery, but I anticipate this seat will hopefully make the ride much more comfortable.

                    I do like that it is only 8 foot long and the back end is flat so I was able to easily stack it up against the wall in my garage for storage. I love how the designers put a handle on the side of the kayak to carry. Makes is much easier to get from my truck to the river by myself, even if I have to walk across a parking lot.

                    Has cup hold between legs. Just be aware that an open cup will get water splashed into it from the paddles.

                    Nice blue color.

                    I recommend get a short piece of rope, say 6 feet long and attach to the front of the boat. Use it to hold onto the boat when climbing back onto land. This will keep the boat from floating away!

                              I bought two of them to enjoy with my family of four. We aren't out for speed, just to enjoy the scenery. I took our 7 yr old with me and my husband took our 4 yr with him, this was to help balance weight! The kids later switched from back to front and then into the other kayak while on the water. Very stable! We talked about all the things we could do with them, such as fishing, picture taking, and picnicing. We thought a floating cooler of snacks would be a great edition to our trip! The little pocket behind the seat was perfect for my camera and easy to access. Our 7 yr old took one out on his own as well. I know they will have a blast jumping off them at the lake as well. Highly recommend for those with little kids or out just to enjoy the day!

                                  We purchased 2 of these kayaks for use at our cottage on a lake. We wanted to be able to cruise around on the lake and enjoy the calm waters, get a bit of exercise and spend quality time together. These kayaks are perfect for what we want. The front cord and the handle on the side makes them easy to pull in and out of the garage and to the lake. They are very stable, fairly comfortable (the back rest is adjustable). My family members range from 9 to 43 and all are able to use these easily and comfortably.

                                  Another plus is that I can fit both of them inside my minivan along with 2 passengers! We are looking forward to taking them to other lakes in the area to kayak.

                                    The other kayaks in our group are all Tamaracks and our Lotus could not keep up. We had to paddle non stop to try and keep up with them. We are happy with how it handled and like the carry handle on the Lotus better than the Tamarack but was wore out by the end of the day trying to keep up with the group. I also like the color of the Lotus better but color doesn't help it float.
