Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perception Kayak This kayak, which was purchased for my wife's birthday, is meeting all her expections. It is wide enough and very stable. For an newby to kayaking, she was extremely pleased with the way it handled and responded to her paddling. She plans on using it frequently from now on in her exercise regimen, and in concert with the other women on our side of the lake to share time together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little kayak I have taken this out a couple of times and my wife has taken it out too. It is nice that it is light enough for both of us to lift it on top of our car by ourselves. It works great on the water and turns well. I wouldn't want to use it with big waves though, but if you just want to go around a lake it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10/10 for the Prodigy 10.0 I've owned this kayak a little over a year, and consider it some of the best money ever spent. Pros: Gear storage is waterproof. I accidentally submerged my kayak trying to practice flipping, and still, no water inside. (My adventure partner has a different brand, and that is not the case.) Stable. Even when trying to flip it, I have never felt like I would lose control. When contending with the wake from motorboats on lakes, I've felt stable as well. Size. I'm a 250lb, size 18 lady, and fit comfortably in the cockpit. (Honestly, much larger and I would recommend sitting in it before you buy.) I can lift it onto my hatchback myself, and can carry it down to the water fine as well. Cons: Other kayaks have some more storage options (webbing on the bow) and cup holders built in. Certainly not a deal-breaker, but you can't have a pro/con list without some cons.

Is there a drain plug?

Asked by: Jf351980
No. Not on either side of the bulkhead. I would use a hand pump.

We own this kayak and loaned it to a friend. When it was returned, the triangular ballast (from the front, I assume?) had been damaged and replaced, but not installed. Is there an online manual or perhaps someone on site (Sac Expo) able to help? Thanks!!!

Is this the same Perception kayak as the Wave 10?

Asked by: D Pool
​According to Perception, the Wave 10 is made for a specific company. The Prodigy 10 is the same hull mold, but may have some minor cosmetic differences.

We are looking for kayaks to take on a class 1/2 river, like the Spring River in Hardy, AR. Should this work? Does it have a skirt? Can you paddle straight in slow water easily? Thanks!

Asked by: SaraO
The Prodigy 10.0 Kayak is suitable for class 1 and 2 rivers. This kayak does not come with a skirt but one can be purchased separately. The 10' design and lack of a skeg lessens this kayaks ability to hold a straight line when paddling in a current, however, some of this ability is dependent on the strength of the current, wind and the paddler's technique.
