Eddyline Caribbean 14FS Review
Performance of the Eddyline Caribbean 14FS
Reviewers of this latest iteration of the Caribbean 14 are positively glowing. This is, according to experts, a surprisingly powerful boat that gets up to an amazing rate of acceleration in a short space of time.
Experts suggest that the tracking and acceleration of this kayak are bolstered by its streamlined shape. It cuts through water well, though there’s some concern over how well it will perform in high winds.
The 14FS’ main upgrade is its seat, which reviewers state is a big improvement – it raises you up higher in the boat and keeps you drier. The storage onboard, too, gets high marks – there are lots of nooks and crannies around the vessel that you can access at short notice.
Experts don’t say much about durability, but this is an award-winning manufacturer and the boat itself appears to take some punishment.
