Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great next kayak! This is a great next kayak (after the "stable" - read "bulky" sit-on-top). What I like about it most is I can carry it by myself, I can get it off the car alone, and it is fun in the water. On my way to a sleeker model one day, but this one sure is a great one for me right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Kaya Just bought this for my wife. First trip out was a 12 mile trip and she loved. We got into some very rough water and the kayak was solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elie Kyak We just bought this kyak. The seat is great! The adustable foot pegs are also wonderful. It has so many hatches and bottle holders. I'm 5'5" and it's very roomy. It's great in the water. Moves smooth and pretty fast. I'm not one to want to change much so decided to splurge and buy one that looked like I would keep it for a while. I'm sure I will!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New kayak Purchased the Elie Sound 100 XE a few weeks ago and I am enjoying it immensely. Comfortable seat, stable, and relatively fast. The weight of the kayak is perfect to handle alone. Cup and bottle holders are placed well. Plenty of space for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I bought this kayak about 3 years ago and I have used it in lakes, rivers and creeks. It is really durable, and navigates well in open water. I have had a cooler, backpack, and tackle box that fit perfect and enjoyed kayak fishing or just cruising around on the water. The great thing is that its lightweight and it only takes one person to launch it and load it on your cars roof rack.

Can this kayak handle being scraped across rocks in very shallow rivers? I see the fin on the back and it looks like it might be fragile.

Asked by: Drew
​This kayak is made from a very durable thermo-molded polyethylene that will withstand being dragged on river rock. The black piece at the stern is a keel extension and a skid plate. This piece can be replaced if needed.

What type of hull design is the Sound 100XE?

Asked by: GCC52
​The Sound 100 has a shallow v-hull, which strikes a balance between the v-shape design for speeds and the gentler angle required for stability. Also, the keel extension enhances tracking.

Is this kayak suitable for class I and II rivers?

Asked by: JackPhillip
This kayak is a recreational kayak, although its appearance is similar to Elie's touring models. It performs well on flat water to slow moving rivers to some choppy waters.

Is the bottom of the kayak flat or does it have lines across the bottom to make it move through the water more efficiently? Can you send a pic of the bottom? Thanks!

Asked by: Pegobrien1
The Sound's hull is a balance of a v-shape for speed and a gentler angle for stability, and is not a completely flat on the bottom.
