Ascend H12 Kayak Question

Has anyone had any experience with the Ascend H12 Hybrid kayak from Cabellas? I am curious if you liked it or not and why. I am thinking about getting one for fishing on some beaver ponds in our area? That and the fact I am 6'9" tall and 350+ limits me on choices.

While I have not had any experience with that kayak in particular, I am in the same boat as you. Sorry for the pun. I ended up getting Pelican's The Catch 120. It fits me well at 6' 2" and I'm over 350 as well. sportsmans/Pelican-The-Catch-120-11-ft-8-in-Sit-on-Top-Fishing-Kayak/productDetail/Kayaks/prod99999057441/cat101213?ref=google&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI5ozo_r It handles well and isn't too wobbly unless you are doing some real thrashing around in it. The seat is very comfortable and with it set up higher it keeps my legs from falling asleep.

I have a friend who has the 10ft version and its a stable boat, but heavy and slow for a sit in kayak. we did a short portage with it with wheels and it was still pretty heavy.
