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

    Try an inflatable...great for limited storage space and calm water.

    I will have to save up over the summer if I wanted to get one of the ones mentioned which would be fine I guess

    Are there any decent quality kayaks with good stability for a cheaper price?
    There are plenty good Kayak in $400 price range. You can go on your local craiglist and see if there is one for sell. Good luck and have fun searching.

    start looking for local kayak shops, and see if they have "demo" days, where you can do a test paddle and see if that yak will work for you. I chose WS yaks for the seats, due to a bad back, and WS has a good seat imo. If not comfy, won't use it. has some good choices and info on the various yaks available.

    I know this one is about double what you wanted to spend, but I'm thinking this is a super SOT kayak.
