  1. Great review… What length paddle would you recommend for this boat given the height of the seat?

    I am becoming weary of waiting for this supposed superior kayak. month after month after month go by. No one has them in stock, no one knows when they will ship, everyone wants a deposit. Having been burned too many times, I will never place a deposit. I will purchase when they are physically available. Bonafide lost out on the sale of four kayaks for Christmas this year. For the writer of this story, please make us a pledge – you will not write about or promote any product until it is being shipped.

      I won’t pledge to avoid products not available yet. The idea is to discover the pros and cons and let you the consumer know before it is too late. Any kayak can have delays. If you want one when they first come out, regardless of kayak, a deposit is necessary. If you want to wait and hope they have additional stock, that is also an option. Nobody is forcing your hand. Do what makes the most sense for you. Retailers should have them mid-December.

    There are no delays. It’s been scheduled to start shipping in December since July and is on time.

    Chris,
    I am torn between two Kayaks at this point. The feelfree 11.5 or this new bonafide SS127. Have you ever tested the feelfree 11.5 before? They’re very similar in design however most reviews show the feelfree is a slow and sluggish kayak. I’m just trying to get a feel on those that have paddled the bonafide and possibly the feelfree what their views are.

    • Chris Payne says:

      Hi Robert. The Bonafide to me is every bit as stable as the Lure 11.5 and it paddles much better. It will carve waves and allow you to move against or crossing current and waves. I felt the FF was just pushed by the waves and it couldn’t really crosscut them, just go over. If you have the $ for the Bonafide you won’t be sorry.

    Awesome, thank you so much for the reply.
