I almost feel obligated to get a kayak now since I just bought a Subaru. Plus I live about 2 miles from a big reservoir.

Nice! I don't have that one yet, but will definitely need to pick it up. I have a couple of guidebooks at home that I've used in conjunction with AW for about 10 years now that have served me well.

If you ever feel like meeting up for a kayaking trip, I'm game.

I'm pretty sure they have it somewhere in the terms and conditions of the sale.

If I wanted to get a lower cost kayak, it would be more Mid range and the perception pescador pro would be on my radar. Very nice kayak models on the older Tarpon 120 molds and designs and made with a comfortable seat.

Yes you can get a regular Presdaor for $500, but the seat make the kayak when you are in it for 4 to 5 hours at a time, believe me. You could always buy the cheaper version and do a DIY and add a turkey chair for it to be more comfortable. You can get the Pro 10 for $620 and it would work around here, the Antietam, Potomac and stuff like that. Open water and the wind and it would be useful, but not as great as a 12 footer.

Depends on the length and where the two seats are in respect to the OAL. You paddle from the rear seat if you're solo in a tandem so that you have greater control over steering (much like the guy in the back of the canoe is the one who steers). It's not what you'd want for your only kayak, but okay on occasion.

Bringing this thread back from the dead, lol.

I'm torn between the Ascend sit on top from bass pro or the Perception pescador pro in 10' or 12'.

Anyone have experience with either?

I have an ascend 12í youíre welcome to borrow to see how you like it. Iíve had it about a year and I havenít decided if I like it or not. Itís big and I wanted big to haul gear and decoys for hunting and overnighters. I also bought it cheap so because I donít have much in it and itís big Iím happy. I just donít know if Iím as happy as Iíd be with something that felt a little less like a tank. My other kayak is a sit-in pelican and it feels like a speedboat compared to the ascend but it also feels like a toy compared to the ascend.

Where are you located? I feel like for the small rivers and lakes here 10' would be adequate but I'm not sure.

I also have an 11' Coleman Crawdad that I use when I go out with someone else. Which is another reason I'm thinking of a 10' kayak. I already have a tank to paddle around lol.
