Thread Details

Menards has kayaks again this year (they had a different brand at this same time last year - they tend to find great deals on batches of discontinued or overflow merchandise). This year's kayak is:

Viper 10.4 [menards.com] - available in three colors (lime, yellow, tangerine)
Adjustable Padded Backrest & Seat Cushion
Stable, High Performance multi-channel Hull
Adjustable Step Lock footbrace system
Molded in Water Bottle Holder
Large 10" x 18" Rear Storage Hatch
Deck Bungees
Integrated rear drain plug
Front and Rear Carry Handles
Made from durable High Density polyethylene

Length: 10’ 4”
Width: 31.75”
Height: 13”
Cockpit: 38.38” x 20.5”
Capacity: 300 lbs
Weight: 45 lbs (mine felt a little lighter than that)
Manufacturer's website [viper-kayaks.com]

It appears to be a slightly stripped down Equinox 10.4 [equinoxkayaks.com] (Costco sold these a couple years back for around $300 including a cheap roof kit, and they were reviewed pretty well for the price point). Regional pricing may vary slightly, but it should hover around $168 plus tax. This week is still 11% rebate on everything (rebate is a merchandise check for use later at Menards), so total price after tax and rebate is around $160 (which is a good price for a kayak like this - fair market is probably closer to $250).

Discover also has 5% Cashback at Home Improvement stores starting 4/1. That will take off an extra $8.40 ($168 * 5%).

I use the Lowes coupon at Menards on a regular basis: however, they wouldn't accept it with the current 11% off rebate promotion.
Agreed. Though during 11% rebate sales they will give you a choice of using a 10% off coupon or keeping the rebate. If you use the coupon the rebate will print off, but the manager approving the coupon will tear it off of your receipt (in my experience).

Can you walk back around and get the receipt printer thing to give you a new one?

I'll probably check it out in store tomorrow, but it looks as though the rear hatch isn't watertight. Unless someone else speaks up first, I'll report back what I find.
As expected, the rear hatch is completely open to the rest of the vessel, and the bungie over the hatch cover is somewhat annoying. Further downsides to this one versus the Equinox are lack of thigh pads in the cockpit, lack of paddle holder bungie on the starboard side and the cam lock hatch on the Equinox is just another cup holder on this one.

All being said, it fit me pretty well and can't be beat for the price. Picked up a lime one. Thanks OP!

Nope. The receipt printer will generate your transaction receipt, but not the rebate receipts that print out at the end and are required to be sent in.

Are you buyers in a place where outdoor water isn't still frozen to try one of these out? Seems hard to beat for the money to have around for occasional use at the lake place. Anyone see a downside to buying this construction for casual use?

Price was just too good to pass up, could not find anything under $250 used on craigs, and that was for much smaller/kids models, and a few very used old Kayaks with plenty of use in the $300 range. Our local Menards were selling them like Hot Cakes, saw three strapped to roofs when I pulled in. Lime color were sold out, but I think the Tangerine (Orange) looks the best of the three offered. My total after the rebate was around $161.xx. Just can't beat that for a new +10' Kayak.
