Ratings & Reviews
Love my RS117
I have now owned my RS117 for two years and have many fishing trips using it. This has been by far the best fishing equipment that I have ever purchased. The kayak is very stable, easy to paddle and very comfortable for many hours on the water.
A very positive purchase experience
Got my "Venom" RS117 the other day. It took a while for FishUSA to get this item back in stock, but Jim and the customer service crew kept me informed as to the "expected" delivery schedule. They can't keep these kayaks in stock, they sell out of these very rapidly! Very nice people to work with. This is my first Kayak ever, fishing or otherwise, and I haven't got it on the water yet so can't comment on it's performance yet, but what I can say is this kayak sure seems to be designed with a lot of neat features to make it a great fishing platform.
You don't need to worry about the delivery process, which I was a little skeptical of living way up here in cold northern Michigan. The kayak came wrapped and padded and the kayak came through without a scratch, delivered to the end of my driveway.
Firstly, just want to say that I was very apprehensive about ordering a kayak online, but was extremely pleased with the entire transaction. The kayak arrived in perfect condition (well wrapped and padded) within just a few days of ordering. Customer service responded to a question I had in a timely manner and was very helpful, even the delivery company used was polite and professional. Every inch of the kayak itself is designed to be useful in some way and the seat is super comfortable. Overall very happy with my purchase and the experience.
