  • Great build, comfortable and well thought out layout

    Posted by Adam W on Jun 29th 2020

    Just got my Bonafide RS117 and the features, seat comfort, and build quality are all top notch. All rigging is industrial strengtha dn very solid. Handles are comfortable and very sturdy. Seat is solid build and 2-position placement allows for very comfortable rowing experience. Overall, the features, quality, and design make this a top notch purchase that I'm thrilled about!

  • Great entry level boat or for fishing small waters

    Posted by Darrell Klein on Jan 24th 2019

    This may be marketed as an entry level boat but rest assured that there is no sacrifice made when it comes to quality. This kayak has every bit of the quality that Bonafide Kayaks has quickly become known for. A seasoned kayak fisherman will appreciate the simple yet utilitarian layout of this boat. It has all the things you need without anything that will get in your way. With a couple of YakAttack accessories, you can customize this boat to your liking. The light weight makes this boat easy to get in and out of those hard to get to skinny water locations I like to fish. The stability is plenty as I was able to stand and cast from this kayak at 6'1" and 280 pounds. Paddles with ease and tracks straight. This kayak should be on your list of boats to try out.
