Any Complaints Lifetime 10 Foot Manta Tandem Kayak

by frank on June 28, 2014

Before buying this tandem kayak made by the Lifetime Products Company, we thought it might be helpful if we reviewed and made you aware of any major complaints or issues other customers have experienced with the Lifetime 10 Foot Manta Tandem Kayak.

And to answer a very common question people always seem to ask, “Are paddles included with the purchase?”, yes, this Lifetime Tandem Kayaks does include two paddles. At least if you buy it where we recommend you do.


Customers are Saying: Good Vs. Bad

The image below was taken from Amazon and does provide you with a good glimpse into understanding how satisfied customers have been with their purchase of this product.

By examining the image above it’s fair to say the majority of the customers who have purchased the Manta 10 Tandem Kayak do think it provides good value for the money spent.

But we are not writing this to tell you how awesome this kayak is. If you notice in the image above there are also some people who have rated this model with a 1-star.

What we want to do is address what the people who gave it a low rating had to say in their review and tell you if these complaints are anomalies or if they are things you really need to consider before making your purchase.

The Bad Reviews Examined

We will address what the people said

#1 Complaint - I get so confused when people say things in their reviews that are so not true. The first person leaving a complaint, says, ” I bought this because I wanted a kayak that could fit three people, the pictures show three people paddling on the kayak.”.

No, the pictures do not show three people on this “tandem” kayak. The pictures show this kayak has 2-seats and two people on the kayak. No where in the description does it say this model was specifically made to handle three people.

I would ignore this person’s 1-star review.

#2 Complaint - Another amazingly smart person, LOL…  Sorry not meaning to sound mean here. However, this person’s complaint is completely based on their own misunderstanding.

This person received the kayak, opened the box, the kayak was in perfect condition BUT they say a plastic bag with a few parts in it. In the bag were scupper plugs and seat straps. These were extra parts!!!

The person couldn’t figure out what to do with these extra parts and became very frustrated. They looked and looked where to put these parts… They saw these same parts already on the kayak but couldn’t figure out the parts in the bag were only spare parts!!!

So this person called the company and complained that there was no diagram to show how to use these “extra” parts. And then came back to Amazon and gave this product a 1-star rating.

Sorry to say, this person was completely clueless

#3 Complaint – We do take this person’s review more serious than the previous two complaints about the Lifetime 10 Foot Manta Tandem Kayak, however, we get the feeling this is a very picky consumer.

Read All the reviews and you decide if you agree with our assessment of these negative reviews.
