Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 Angler Kayak Review

Fit for even the most advanced angler and paddler, the Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140 Angler kayak is well-rounded and sturdy, with a number of features that build on the success of the standard model.

Aggressively redesigned, this kayak can handle nearly any type of environment. Whether white water or smooth expanses, the Tarpoon 140 tracks well, provides state-of-the-art stability and advanced maneuverability. It’s almost like having the best of both worlds in the small and large kayak designs.

The speed is nothing to scoff at, either, making even the beginner love the rush of the water.
