Some of you may have seen my message a couple weeks ago regarding buying new kayaks, and I got some good advice here and from friends. We went out for another demo day yesterday, this time in more of an open ocean environment. I retested the Tarpon 100 (which was the one I had thought I'd get), tested the Tarpon 120, and the Scrambler 11. I decided the Tarpon 120 was better than the 100 for me. I liked the handling and feel of the Scrambler 11, but the foot wells weren't working for me, my feet kept slipping. Then I saw the Caper in the catalog and it looked similar to the Scrambler but with larger foot wells. The shop got one out for me and I loved it! As soon as I started paddling it I felt it was a perfect fit for me. To be sure, I took it out for 3 1/2 hours. I was still sure, so that's what I bought! My boyfriend tried a few other kayaks too, and ended up getting the Tarpon 120, which was his favorite from the prior demo day and he confirmed it yesterday. We got Werner paddles, and have to go shopping for life vests today.
