Old Town Kayak Reviews
Since this is a fishing site first we will begin with the fishing models. Withing their selection of fishing kayaks are three different families: Predator, Heron, and Vapor. The newest are the Predator family of kayaks and have quickly become very popular with anglers.
Old Town Fishing Kayaks:
The first set of kayaks are the Predator 13 and the Predator MX.
These two kayaks are very similar. The Predator 13 is about a 1 foot longer and 4 pounds heavier and has a couple additional features. But the hull design and the seating on these two kayaks is identical. And even though the Predator MX is around 1 foot shorter there is the same amount of leg space inside. This kayaks are both incredibly stable making them a great choice for stand-up-fishing.
We wrote an article that completely compares these two kayaks. Learn the exact differences.
Heron Family of Angler Kayaks includes: Heron 9, Heron 11XT and Twin Heron Angler.
Below is an image of the Heron 9 Angler Kayak. This is the simplest and most inexpensive Fishing Kayak Old Town produces. Don’t confuse inexpensive with cheaply made everything this company produces is quality the Heron 9 just doesn’t have a lot of extra features find on the more expensive kayaks.
A lot of people do love this kayak. It’s fun, lightweight, comfortable. Easy to paddle and tracks well in the water. Full Review
Heron 11Xt Angler Kayak - see the image below. This is a step up form the Heron 9. Basically a little longer and in the rear there is a fairly larger storage hatch. There’s not much difference in price the 11Xt will probably cost you $40-50 more.
See the Twin Heron Angler Kayak below. Perfect platform if your got a fishing buddy. It’s 13.5 feet long over 31 inches width. This tandem kayak will provide you and your partner a lot of space. And the hull is designed not to pop up in case you are sitting alone in the rear. This is a very unique design you can read more at our review.
Old Town Vapor Angler Kayaks: Vapor 10 and Vapor 12XT. This are perfect for the weekend warrior that wants to take a step up in features fro the Heron family. We still haven’t receive an image of the Vapor 12XT to add to this page below is the Vapor 10.
The Old Town Vapor 10 is a stable, efficient and roomy kayak and can be purchased for right around $500. Price vs Value this is an extermely popular choice. Read our full review.
