Boasting three built-in rod holders, including the standard stationary flush mounted rod holders located behind the seat, this tandem kayak can carry multiple rods and allows you to have one more than one line in the water at a time. The third rod holder is situated in front of the peddler and acts as a swivel base holder, great for setting the line wherever you need it to be! This takes fishing to epic proportions!


Coming up at less than 40 pounds, the kayak can easily be lifted up and set on a roof rack for haulage and portage over footpaths when required. The slim, narrow contours of the kayak allow great accessibility for navigating. In addition, the comfortable sit-on design, padded seat back and adjustable foot braces, is great for casting the line without feeling the inevitable fatigue.

Perhaps the biggest discouragement is the kayak is not equipped with any self-baling scuppers and any water on board must be hauled out manually. Another setback is the kayak’s weight limit of 250 lb, which can be easily exhausted with the paraphernalia of fishing, such as the battery, the GPS finder, rods and heavy tackle boxes.

Our Final Review

With a top-notch design, affordable cost, extensive durability, and unprecedented perks, this excellent kayak is a must have for all ardent Kayakers!
