I am a small 5’1, 115 lb woman so when my ex left I found myself very limited since I don’t have roof racks or the physical strength to maneuver my big kayak. This gives me the freedom to kayak whenever I please and get back to my favorite pastime!
It took 4 months to come in. With Covid and the crazy world, this isn’t great but it’s to be expected. I work in manufacturing so I understand the difficulty with supply-chain issues. The first time folding is difficult but after folding all of the seams a couple of times it gets much easier. I didn’t time myself but I have no complaints with the time it takes (took longer to load/unload my old one safely from racks with help). It’s very wide so it’s stable but not the fastest. Great for a calm lake or river. Easy to maneuver since it’s so light. The seat I got only has one seat cushion and the back, I might add some more cushion at some point. I had to keep adjusting the strap for the back of the seat as it stretched throughout my first ride but there is plenty of adjustability in the strap.
So far I am very happy with this purchase. Thank you tucktec.
Glad you are enjoying your Tucktec! Thanks for the review!
I got a refurbished model, but I don’t believe it had ever been folded before. The video to put it together leaves out a couple details that needs to be shown, but once you put it together the first time you’ll be fine. It’s fairly stable and easy to carry. Would recommend
Easy to assemble Only took five minutes easy to carry strong. Very happy to purchase this.
I really have no complaints it’s a very solid paddle which was free with my order so I didn’t quite have high expectations but it seems really sturdy
Awesome fun and SO convenient!
The first time setting up was not easy. But after that, you can enjoy the full range fun of kayaking. No worries of loading up and done from a car. Also very stable and fast on a river.
I placed order for two kayaks, received one and when I asked where the second was they said only 1 shipped in error. They sent the second but refused to overnight. Week later finally had both but when we put in water it leaked as there was a hole. They shipped a replacement but did not overnight ship.
The customer service replied quickly and actioned corrective measures. Very impressed with Johnathan. He is the reason I am not giving this a lower rating.
The free paddle that came with my Tucktec kayak fit the kayak well and didn’t drip hardly any water into the boat. I was also surprised by how comfortable the shaft of the paddle was to hold.
These things are awesome. They provide so much stability. I was in some pretty choppy waves today and I noticed they also seem to serve as splash guards. I haven’t tried my tucktec without my stabilizers but honestly, I’m not sure I want to. So glad I bought them.
Today was my maiden voyage on my kayak and it was wonderful. So easy to transport, set up and loaded to get on water in under 8 minutes, and it performed well. It got attention at the boat dock! I look forward to future outings on water. Only adjustment I would make is to my seat as it was rubbing bare legs a bit and back was not at height I enjoyed. Still would not discourage me from highly recommending and buying in future for my children to join me out on the water.
