Everything At Arm's Reach

This weekend at the CKO Tournament, I had the pleasure of meeting many great folks who loved the outdoors and the sport of kayak fishing.  One individual that really stood out was Patrick Price, and his ingenious solution to a common problem many kayak anglers have while on the water…


Having all your tackle at arm’s reach is easy enough while fishing from a sit on top kayak but doing the same while paddling is another issue.  Patrick’s solutions slide everything forward while underway.  

The Slider is a sliding equipment mount that lets you securely attach your most needed gear within easy reach right between your legs, yet slide it out of the way when you need the space. The SLIDER System is made up of a standard set of RAILS that mount to your boat with two bolts, and various sliding platforms to which you can attach the full line of Scotty and RAM mounting products, and countless accessories, without drilling more holes in your kayak.

 

All SLIDER System models feature a SLIDE-Lock that allows you to release, move and re-lock the sliding platform with one hand.  An adjustable Travel-Limiter insures the platform never comes off the rails accidentally, or slides further forward than you can comfortably reach. Everything is marine tough and built to last in fresh or salt water.  The Rails are universal so you can swap out platforms as you like.  If you use more than one boat, you can buy extra Rails and move your platforms from boat to boat as you wish.  You may never have to drill another hole in your kayak!

Patrick hooked us up with a Slider to put through it's paces, we'll have a full review in a few months!

I have had mine for over a year and it still looks and works like the first day. As a one of the pro staffers I'm biased but it's not bragging if it's true.
