Sound 100 XE

rated 5 of 5 stars Terrific overall kayak. Purchased new in April 2014 from REI. Wanted to find a good kayak for recreational use that wouldn't break the bank.

Sound 120 XE

rated 5 of 5 stars Good looking boat. Paddles well. Tracks straight. Great seating. Great boat for lakes and slow moving rivers. Paddles easily and tracks well. Easy to get in and out of even for a 6'4" 200 lb person. Ergo flex seating is fantastic. Boat is very well rigged. Great bang for the buck. Full review
