Hi all,

I am considering getting a recreational kayak for fising bays and lakes. I wanted to get your opinions on this item I stumbled across on ebay, a portable kayak from sharper image

The attraction to this for me is its portability, I drive a sedan and a 9 ft kayak on a roofrack is alot of stress. With this, it will fit in my trunk no prob. However, I am concerned about a few things such as drag, handling,and durability. In my novice opinion, a traditional recreational kayak would appear to be much stronger, handle better, glide faster thru the water. If the portable one can accomplish most things a traditional one can do with not too much compromise, I would consider it.

I have no kayak experience (have done some rowboat), but plan on going out 2-3 times a week.
Any opinions would be appreciated.
