I'm so close to pulling the trigger on this rig - can't find a demo but was able to get a few minutes on one as I saw a guy who had one. Looks like a great rig for lake and bays. Really want to spend a day demo before I buy so if you have one please give me the pro/cons Thanjs

I have one. I love it.

Cons: Length , weight,

Pros: speed, stability, flat open deck, storage, attachments (electric motor, pedal drive, flex pod)

I have one and absolutely love it! Great yak! Super stable and cuts the wind with ease. Fast for such a big yak too.

I got mine last week and it's awesome! I would agree with C-Frog on the cons, you better get a cart or always go with a buddy to help load/unload and carry to the water. The stability is crazy, I'm not a small guy by any means, 6' 300# and I can stand up and paddle/fish no problem.

That front handle needs some padding of some sort for sure. It will burn you after sitting in the sun for a bit....Other then that, I think its a nice boat! thumb

I agree 100% with that Joe. That handle, both front and rear, gets really hot sitting out all day. I recommend attaching some kind of pull strap.

I've been looking at these yaks too, what's the peddle drive like? Is it similar to a slayer or more like a hobie? What's the price tag compared to the slayer and hobie?(I haven't priced any of these kayaks this year)


It’s better to be seen than viewed

May GOD Bless you in everything you do!

Tight lines!

Thanks for the feedback. I was concerned about the weight, my current 56lb yak seems heavy after a day on the water, but I'm not getting any younger either.

Has anyone heard when the peddle drive system will be coming out?

We have one in our demo fleet (we demo weekly) and we have a Demo Day Scheduled for August 29th at White Rock Lake. No news on the peddle drive system yet, I think they are still working out the mounting. Please let me know if we can be of any assistance!

Sincerely
Aris
