This was a previous slickdeal last year for this same price and I bought one for my wife. This is on of the better "plastic/composite" kayaks. Has a great 270lb weight limit and slides through the water with great stability.I'm buying one for myself this year.

Sale price 179.99 - 20% coupon automatically applied on checkout only good today 6/16/19 brings the total down to 143.99 before taxes. Free in store pickup.They dont do free shipping on these large boats.

Correct. You can purchase a paddle. Last thread a person recommended just a $20 kayak paddle from walmart (ozark trail) We did that for my wife and she loves it.

It's a financial hit when my visa card gets hit with a bag of dicks purchases.

Lifetime uses cheap and very heavy plastic molds. Ridiculously heavy kayak for it's size compared to Ocean Kayak. Pelican, etc. If you like lugging around a few cinder-blocks than this is a fair deal but you will regret it when you put this boat anchor in the water as you'll immediately notice that you have to paddle a lot harder on Lifetime kayaks than other brands.

I learned my lesson and sold the Lifetime and gladly paid almost double for an Ocean Kayak but the performance on the water and weigh made it far worth the extra cost.

No, because different people need different size paddles. Getting the rifle length paddle really makes a difference.

Your conclusions here seem to not fit the facts. This kayak weighs in at 44 lbs. A similar sized Pelican weighs 36 lbs. That is a significant difference but not quite the extreme you make it sound. A ten foot Ocean Katyak come in at closer to 50 lbs. None of these options including the Lifetime I would consider ridiculously heavy. 44 lbs. is to the light side for any kayak.

The Ocean Kayak Malibu 9.5 shows 50lbs. This shows 44lbs. The kayak on this deal seems lighter than the competition. Is there something I'm missing here?

Yes, you are missing the pressing need to justify a $500 kayak purchase over a $150 one.

You just answered your own argument. An extra 10lbs is very significant when hauling a kayak a few hundred feet from the car to the water and also when paddling. But hey don't take my word for it. Go ahead and buy both and take them both for a paddle and you'll completely understand my warning about the Lifetime Kayak. I have no beef with them other than the weight factor which I used to also think was trivial until I sold my Ocean Kayak and bought a cheapo Lifetime and immediately realized this thing is a boat anchor. I ended up selling the Lifetime and going to a Pelican and also regretted selling the Ocean Kayak.
