The foot brace pins are a pain in the butt. Overall a awesome little craft. A little heavier than I anticipated.
1st day on the water review
The “needs modification/improvement”
Comes with six built in rod holders. I don’t like the positioning of the rod holders. Been spoiled with horizontal rod tubes in some of my other kayaks and will be making this modificationshow full review ▼
The 350FX is everything I thought it would be. I got what I payed for. incredibly stable in high winds, lots of rod holders (I added 2 more for a fish finder). This is the best inflatable I own, I have four, so good so far.
Ok well you know all the positives so let me focus on some constructive feedback.
The boat is great in terms of strength and durability but obviously that comes with extra weight and that means I keep mine inflated for the season and transport on the car roof. It is still light enough to load up easily. The problem is the sikeg. Firstly it cannot be straight. I have to do two strokes with the left arm for every one stroke with the right arm. Also the Skeg housing is simply not robust enough for any kind of grounding force with a lateral force. If you don’t land bow first and lift the stern and drag ashore stern first you will damage. Even parked on the beach the weight of the boat is a heavy load for this skeg. Perhaps a longer shallower skeg would be more durable with a longer socket length and lesser depth, but I appreciate that socket length is also tricky due to hull sheer.show full review ▼
Thank you for the review Richard.
The skeg is not designed to be dragged on ground. We do have other shallower skegs you may be interested in.
For any other assistance please feel free to contact us anytime.
fun to use, bit of a challenge stowing away.
Finally, I got to use as I had intended. Little bit of a learning curve inflating, setting up and deflating the first time. Should be relatively easy the next time. One thing of note; if you are using the raised swivel seat, do not bother with installing the foot braces as your feet will not reach them. As I was fishing saltwater in a lagoon, I used the removable skeg. The kayak tracked remarkably well. Stability is a non concern. Exceeded my expectations. Worked like a charm!show full review ▼
I love the 350fx. And the support, although I haven’t needed to use it much, has been outstanding. I like being able to purchase parts here and there when I may need them. Sea Eagle has bee most supportive of any questions I may have. I made the right choice with the 350. Although I don’t do ANY whitewater at all, it’s comforting to know that I chose such a rugged product.
I gave the boat 5 star. Because of quality and craftsmanship. I chose the wrong boat though. It is to heavy for what I wanted to do with it and the bottom of the boat is not tough enough for the creeks I float. I wish the extra black material that has been placed on top of boat was on the bottom . However, Sea Eagle makes a great product and I would buy again.
We are 59 year old teachers and have never owned a kayak. Every summer we travel for weeks with our trailer and pickup. We saw an inflatable kayak two summers ago and were intrigued. We did our research and found Sea Eagle had the best reviews. I fish so an inflatable fishing kayak made sense. We loved our Sea Eagle kayak during our Summer trip last year The kayak and accessories easily fit in our pickup. Set up, cleaning and take down was easy. We kayaked in Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota and Washington. The highlight was the Boundary waters of Minnesota and Ontario, kayaking in wilderness lakes. I caught a ton of fish and no, never worried about a hook sinking the kayak. I can highly recommend our inflatable kayak for storability, ease of use and it is totally cool!
Bought this boat in December and have been using it all season long. 10 different lakes, 2 rivers and whole bunch of fun and fish. Getting the boat in and out of the water is simple and quick. I am new to kayaking, but it seems to handle very well in all situations I have been in. Very happy with my purchase!
