Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak Reviews
Sometimes when you are out on that beautiful clear lake you think, wouldn’t it be nice if you could use your feet to propel yourself so you don’t have to take your hand off your fishing rod? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could eat or hold your rod in both hands so you can handle the big one when he bites? It was with all of this in mind and more when the Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak was designed.
A pedal-powered craft can give you days of endless fun all without tiring your arms out leaving them fully able to do the things you love most, like fishing.
The Slayer Propel 10 is a pedal-powered kayak, leaving your hands free to do whatever you need them to. The Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 is also able to boast that it is among the lightest craft currently on the market. It has the smoothest and most graceful glide of any kayak out there and you are able to reach top cruising speed in seconds thanks to the beautiful design and fluid dynamics.
The Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 is also able to be put easily in the bed of a pickup truck, enabling you to bring the Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 anywhere you need to be.
The bestselling feature of the Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 is the pedal drive system. Rotational pedals in the driving compartment power the system, so just like riding a bicycle, you can navigate seamlessly over the water anywhere you like no matter what the conditions are like.
With the pedals on this kayak, you can move both forward and backward. You simply press the pedals one way or the other to go forward or backward. This makes maneuvering on the water so much more simple compared to some other vessels on the market right now and it makes jumping in knowing almost nothing about kayaking so much easier. This kayak will suit the most experienced kayaker down to an absolute novice.
The Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak comes with a fully pre-installed rudder system with all of the controls on the left. This lets you stay a truer course in choppy or even rough waters when you would list with any other system.
The top of the line hull design is what ensures that the craft has maximum stability and maneuverability. It is pontoon shaped and it is like a tunnel on the inside, which gives the kayak incredible stability. This means that no matter the condition of the water, choppy or calm, the kayak will be as stable as ever.
Keep in mind the kayak is considered short in its class at only 10 feet with a comparably wide hull. What this means is that it is very stable and will even allow you to stand on top of it. Obviously, this is going to be a game-changer when it comes to fishing. The Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak even comes with deck padding to offer you a better grip while you are standing and fishing.
The Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak features a comfortable seat that can be quickly adjusted forwards or backward. You can easily reach the pedals and put away the seat at the same time.
Clearly, this vessel was designed with one thing in mind, fishing. This really stands out when you consider the Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak’s features.
One of the fanciest features on the kayak is the gear tracks. The gear tracks are in both the front of the seat and the back of it so you can attach anything from a fish finder to a GPS to a Go Pro!
What We Like
The kayak is spacious and comfortable but it is also very compact, letting you store and move it around with ease compared to some of its competitors.
The Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak is super easy to use so even if you are a complete novice you can jump in and take it for a spin and go fishing with ease.
The Propel 10 is far and away the most stable fishing kayak ever reviewed here. You are able to practically jump on its deck and it still feels rock solid.
What We Don’t Like
If you compare it to a traditional kayak, there is quite a bit of added weight to compensate for the fishing gear and storage for it. If you are not looking for a traditional kayak experience, then this is a non-issue.
If you need to go into a very, very shallow river or stream then you may want to consider another kayak. The Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak has a propeller that is underwater underneath the vessel so it can maybe get snagged on something in shallow water.
The flat fishing platform can be a little bit of a hassle to set up and tear down especially if you are in a hurry to cast off in a new place. You just have to remember that fishing is a patient man’s game.
If you spend a bunch of time fishing on a fishing boat or just a traditional kayak but find that you would like a better experience on the water then this is exactly the kayak you should get. Only get it if you are sure you can get your money’s worth out of this luxurious craft.
If you like everything about the Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak but find that it just can’t fit all of the gear and tackle that you need then you may want to consider the Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 13 Pedal Fishing Kayak. It’s thirteen feet long and also wider, but we have found that the Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak is the best of both worlds and by far the best bang for your buck.
If you need a top of the line stand on top fishing kayak then you should do yourself a favor and get the Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10 Pedal Fishing Kayak. It will definitely get you the best value for your money and you will be happy with your purchase for the rest of your life.
Going from a fishing boat or a traditional kayak to a stand-on-top fishing kayak is like going from a bicycle to a hot rod. Your fishing experience will be forever improved and you will experience a level of comfort fishing you never thought you would attain.
