Majot issues with seat

Everything advertised showed came with a Grey Hero seat that everyone raving about. Got kayak and had a seat they called the Hero 2.0. should be called the Zero 2pointNo seat. Front Rail digs into back of your thighs, the clips holding the back of the seat to the bottom have a habit of popping open.
After 15 minutes my backside felt like I was in seat 10 hours, At end of the day after only an hour my lower back so sore could hardly move or bend over to get items. My son tried amd had the same issue. Used in the lowest setting the seat back popping open constantly. Pulled to a bank and reset to highest setting and still bar dug in, but butt sank into seat so more comfortable.
The side rails have no indenton at ends to slide on accessories
The wing tops for the rear bungie too small to run cords over an icechest or pull tight the cord not stay secure unless wrap around wingnut shaped tie-downs. Need to be longer wings or taller with M shape to secure the cord tighter.
Took a bit to get use to narrown interior and center console that I really liked to have storage. Was very easy to get up to speed, tracking was spot on. When wind kicked up and deployed the rudder it was amazing kept on track and position when floating.
After purchased and got home to install parts I found the rudder knob to the spring stripped. Quick email and they shipped out a new one. Very impressed with Customer Service.
Bungie seat straps too loose when turn or lean back seat moves.


Not stabile as sId. Primary is outstanding. Secondary is zero
When pouring the coals to it, it flies as if on plane. Have boated MANY slot snook. . You will go over if not within primary Stability. I can definitely say, I can out paddle ANY peddle drive boat..
And I wd put money in it. Don't press secondary stability. You want a kayak that will beat the elements, you have it. You want a kayak that will give you fps per thrust with your paddle, you ve found it. You want to dust those behind you...yessA....you are there. This boat FLIES. FLY'S (WHtever)
Those that hv said it's not so fast must not have a good paddle . HHa haha
Break off some thrust and hook up with something serious and you'll see this boat gets a 12....on a scale to 10.q.
Including tarpon. Best in 2017...BS...BEST TO DATE

Tracks like a dream!

If you are looking for a stable kayak that tracks like a dream and has ample in hull storage. Look no further. The Seaghost130 is packed with options, and the new Hero seat 2.0 opens up storage under the seat as well.

One of my seaghost has floated over 4000 miles of river and is still out there getting it done.

Best bang for your buck!

This is one feature rich kayak with endless rigging options. It's fast, tracks well, and feels very stable as long as I'm sitting down. I did stand up in it but it felt pretty shaky. I'm 5'9", 170lbs and consider myself to have pretty good balance but I did not feel very comfortable standing and paddling. The seat is very comfortable( I can easily do 6 to 8 hour days on this kayak) and there is a ton of storage. The center console is fantastic! I do have a couple of small gripes. First, the foot rests feel very cheap and are difficult to adjust. I literally have to bang on them with the bottom of my fist to get them to move up and down the track. I'm not sure if I just got a bad set or if others are having the same problem. The only other issue I have, and it's relatively minor, is the rudder system feels very "mushy". It might just be the string used to move the rudder back and forth. I will probably replace it with wire in the near future. Overall this is an excellent kayak, especially at this price point. Very happy with my purchase and will 100% recommend the Sea Ghost.
