They all paddle about the same and have the same type of seat. You won’t need a skirt for keeping water out of the key hole. And you can mount a rod holder to it. Standing in it can be tricky but do able.
I actually have two perception swifty 9.5s haha
I will be using them until I can get something else but I'm really looking for a kayak meant for fishing. Something that is stable enough to stand and something that you don't sit inside of... Really is a pain with gear and everything else.

If saving is what it takes to get what I'm looking for, I guess that's what I'll be doing. Still looking around to see what I can find though
