If you don’t feel like reading through the question and answer part of the review the video below does an excellent job at explaining exactly what you will get when you buy this kayak. If the video leaves any of your questions unanswered you should find more information on the price, specifications and features further down the page.
Style: This is an one person sit-on-top that’s stable enough for stand-up-fishing. The seating on this is called high-first class setting very comfortable and easy to adjust for back support. This model is a very popular choice for fly fishing.
How much does it cost? At the the time of this review in 2013 this kayak could be purchased for $1,179 online. This was the best price we could find and was at Amazon. Not exactly sure what you will pay at your local the store but expected to pay at least 10 – 20% compared to online. We have no control over the price as it could change.
Specially Design Quiet Hull: Fish oceans, rivers and lakes and skinny waters. This self bailing hull was specifically designed to keep you dry while you fish all types of water. You can sit and fish but also stable enough to stand-up. The sides are super-smooth to reduce hull slapping noise. And the level of maneuverability and tracking it offers are also outstanding. If you happen to need even better tracking the hull is rudder-ready.
Customization: If you’re handy with a drill and screws then you should be able to customize any fishing kayak. But what makes the Slayer 12 Angler Kayak really cool is a feature called the “Groove” an accessory attachment system which makes adding accessories so much easier. Another plus is Native Watercraft has a bunch of specially designed accessories that go perfectly with their kayaks.
