Vibe Yellowfin 130T vs. Driftsun Teton 120

I’m buying a Tandem Kayak and narrowed my selection down to:

Vibe Yellowfin 130T

Driftsun Teton 120

Thanks for any advise anyone can offer. Desired features:

Center seat for single kayaking, light fishing, stability, craftsmanship.


The Driftsun looks like the same tandem they have been selling on E Bay and Amazon for a couple of years. I looked at one when I was looking for a tandem for my kids and I was not impressed. It has old “on the deck” style seats and does not appear to have much in the way of features or outfitting. The Yellowfin has the nice adjustable height Hero Seat , adjustable foot braces, deck rigging, nicer hatches with nylon bag in them and for an extra $99 you can get a rudder kit for it. I have a Sea Ghost and I have never had an issue with it. Plus they have a US HQ in Georgia and parts are readily available. Between the two, I would go Yellowfin.
