Do any of you guys own this boat or have experience with it? Relatively few reviews online. Thanks.

Thanks. I saw this video earlier. There are a few short videos out there and a few short written reviews, but not much. I'm hoping someone on the forum has fished a good bit from the kayak and can provide some more insight. Thanks again.

This is my go to boat. I prefer it over the Slayer Propel 13. This is the first boat that defied my at least 12' rule.

Had any problems with thin plastic? Some early user reviews said the boat dented and scuffed more frequently than 13.

The slayer 10 is about 54-59lbs. I have a buddy that can carry it under his arm down a steep bank. Austin Kayak's site has the wrong weight of the Slayer 10. The Slayer Propel 13 is about 95-100 lbs.

I have the 13. I have pedaled the 10 and really like it. I've not heard anything about thinner plastic. Everybody I know that has one loves it. Ninja is talking about buying a second one he like it so much.

Here are the specs: http://nativewatercraft.com/boat.cfm?id=54

Fitted Weight: 59 lbs

Yep, that was Austin Canoe and Kayaks website that has it listed at over 90+ pounds. loco The price is also listed at around $200 more than the 13 footer! huh
I guess I need to look at the Native website. I sure would put it at the top of my list if it's under 60#. thumb

I own an SP13 and I think it tracks better than SP10. However, SP10 is really nice. SP13 has a much longer well tank at the back however, when you are on the water it's hard to reach to the far end of the tank since it's so further away from the seat. I tried it once and got scared. smile

Im almost kind of wishing I would have went with the 10 like i originally planned but instead got the 13. Since I mainly fish rivers a lighter boat should have been a no brainer for me especially since I had been fishing out of a 10' Ascend sit in up until this point as well. Oh well I still love my 13 and im sure the 10 is great!

Can you expand on your comment of "tracking"? I've never had an issue with tracking in a peddle kayak. Curious what you mean.
