Sea Eagle 420x Inflatable Kayaks and Canoe Reviews
8 Discount Packages available. starting at $1,099
This is my 2nd Sea eagle 420x. (Raccoons chewed my first). While living in Moab, UT, I took the 420x out on the Colorado river twice a month for years. Sometimes 3 person day trips, and 2 person kayak camping with no support craft. No problem putting a tent, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, full size (soft-sided) ice chest, small propane cook stove, first aid kid... It's a Cadillac. No problem standing up in the raft, it has been down class IV rapids in Westwater canyon. Now that I live in Nebraska, there is no whitewater, so I bought the row package this time. The only complaint I previously had was that it felt a bit slow...but I didn't buy it for speed, I bought it because of the room and 855lb. weight capacity. But once you put oars on a kayak...you'll be leaving a wake. On flatwater, I can row faster than hard shell kayaks can paddle. And I still have the option to increase weight capacity but lower my speed if I take it on a multi-day trip on a river when I move back to an area that has mountains.
Love it! My wife and I are not experienced yakkers, but we are having so much fun exploring beautiful Arizona lakes in this easy to transport easy to set up boat. We bought the pro carbon package with the lighter weight paddles and upgraded seats. With the electric air pump that was a promo item at the time of purchase, it takes less than 2 minutes to fill the each side chamber to 3psi, and a just a little longer to fill the amazing drop stitch floor to 10psi. Flat water only thus far, but we’re looking forward to kayak camping/fishing along the slow moving water of the Colorado River south of the Glen Canyon Dam to Lee’s Ferry.
From the very start of the process, you have been out standing. The kayak is wonderful, paddles great and with all our stuff and dog etc. It couldn’t be better! We take it with us RVing and really every where we go. We’ve paddled the Silver River meant times, Salt Springs, Crystal, Hunter Springs, Withlacoochee River and many lakes between here in central Florida to lake Story Galesburg, Ill. It always Gaines attention and lots of questions. Great product! We have a kayak group from our Church and another person has sold there kayak and bought a 300x. Loves it!
I absolutely love this boat! I own a plastic kayak but after buying the Sea Eagle I will never buy anything except an inflatable kayak again. And it will be a Sea Eagle. I did a lot of research before buying the 420X, and considering how I use it, there is nothing out there that even comes close. I use it on lakes and rivers and it will keep up with any paddle boat out there. It's not a speed demon, but it performs very well. I do use an electric pump to inflate, then finish it off with the high pressure hand pump. The first time I had it out was on a lake in central Kentucky. Stability is amazing! I actually stood up and used it like a paddle board. This summer my wife and I are going to take it on a 17 mile trip with class 2 and 3 rapids, this was the #1 reason I bought this kayak. This thing paddles great either solo or tandem. After paddling it this past year, I am 100% confident we will have the best kayaking experience of our lives. Paddles great solo or tandem. 5 stars for customer service!!!
