Vibe Sea Ghost 110 Review
Vibe Sea Ghost 110 is the small brother of Sea Ghost 130, which comes at 13’. With every engineering piece, you really have to compromise some features for the others. Like, to make a kayak more portable you may have to sacrifice a lot of storage space. So, it really is about finding a nice balance between features and not compromising the real trademark that your company stands for. Vibe Sea Ghost 110 is really a feature-rich, built-to-last, well-made fishing kayak.
Stability - Stable in Windy and Rough Waters
The stability of a kayak pretty is important as you don’t want a kayak that might flip itself in the water. While purchasing, for Sea Ghost 100 you really don’t have to worry about it because its stability can’t get any better.
I don’t think any kayak of this price is as stable as Sea Ghost, so if you are looking for a kayak that you can take out in windy and rough waters this is the kayak for you.
Center Console - Good Storage Capacity, But…..
But, on the other hand, the center console is big enough to keep all of your needs that you need to keep at hand while fishing.
Seat - Provides the Comfort You Need For Fishing
Fishing is a game of patience, but your patience can only be a joy if your seat is comfortable and Vibe really considered this while making this seat.
Seat, as told earlier, is its marketing feature. It is pretty great and I won’t be exaggerating if I say I can sit on it for days.
The seat other than being comfortable is also adjustable to two different heights, so you can customize it according to your comfort level.
Multiple Storage Compartments - Can Disturb Maneuvering
Other than a center console, it has three other dry storage compartments where you can keep your stuff without worrying that it might get wet.
Rudder System - Provides You the Tracking You Need In Rough Waters
Sea Ghost 110 rudder system comes with a pre-installed rudder with a toe control system which can be attached and removed easily.
Rudder system is really the thing you need when kayaking through heavy windy waters. It makes the kayak turn easily and puts it back on a straight track.
Rod holders - Two for a fishing kayak, really?
For a fishing kayak, rod holders are things of sheer importance. Luckily, Vibe has installed two flush-mounted rod holders in Seas Ghost 110 which are in the stern. Additionally, the rod holders are capped, so when the rods are in use they don’t get flooded.
Rods act like two spare arms and can cut the mount so deep within the kayak that rods stay safe and secure. There are other kayaks that have fancy rod holders that look good but don’t serve the purpose but Vibe has kept this simple and efficient.
Speed - Good in Windy Conditions
The speed of Ghost 110 is pretty great when the water is rough and windy, but when the water is plain because of its weight with its size does not provide the best of speeds.
However, it was made to drive through windy and rough water and it works well there. This is a good option for people who are interested in that kind of stuff.
Maneuverability - Maneuvers Well with Rudder
Rudders and installed in Sea Ghost 110 to provide efficient maneuvering in conditions that are not ideal. At 11 feet, you are naturally going to get better maneuverability than any big kayak.
Because of the compartments, there is a hollow space left in the kayak and when the compartments are empty it causes an uneven distribution of weight in the kayak which contributes to wobbling when rudders are removed from the kayak.
So, overall maneuvering with rudder and some weight in compartments is good, but if this is not the case the situation is reversed.
Tank wall - Provides Good Space
The tank wall is of pretty decent size and crates of standard sizes can be fitted easily. Along with that, there is a built-in bungee system that can keep your luggage safe and in place. The tank wall is big enough to fit with a backpack as well.
The material of Construction - Best You Can Get In Price
The material of the construction of Vibe Ghost 110 is rotomolded one-piece high-density polythene. Because of its material, it comes at an affordable price. If aluminum or other metals were used in its construction, it would have cost too high, but despite this price and material, this kayak has good durability to last you for years.
At 11 feet, this is a big kayak which makes its transportation a little bit difficult. It is hard to fit it in the back of an SUV or on the roof of small trucks because of its weight, so for the transport of this kayak, you might need a specific trolley designed to transport kayaks.
Weight - A bit heavy for its length
This kayak weighs about 62 pounds which is a bit heavier than the other kayaks of similar sizes, but because of the handles, it is not very difficult to carry. A single person might not be able to carry this on his own because of its length, but even a kid can help you with it.
Accessories - Comes with standard accessories
Like most kayaks, it comes with standard accessories and kayak paddle is the most important of them. Sea Ghost 110 comes with a Vibe Evolve paddle which is pretty good. The paddle has blades that can help in windy and tough conditions. Moreover, it comes with scupper plugs, so you don’t have to buy them separately like most other kayaks.
Ease of use - Beginners and Pros, Good For Both
Sea Ghost 110 doesn’t have any complex feature which a beginner may find hard to understand. It works well for both beginners and pros, but it is recommended to beginners not to take this kayak in the windy situation as it takes a little getting used to. You can attach any standard fishfinder and transducer through its various mounting points.
Cost - Really Affordable
When I was purchasing this kayak, I was running really low on budget and this was the best I could get. At the time of purchase, I didn’t expect so much from it because of its low price, but after using it for several months my perspective about it has completely changed.
