2016 Native Slayer Propel

This is my third Native kayak. I bought this one in April of this year. I fish a lot of slam tournaments and this yak helps me cover lots of water quickly. It is super stable. I can stand amd access the front hatch to retrieve items from it. I have used the reverse multiple times to help pull fish from the mangroves. The only 2 cons I have found is that the rudder is ineffective at any speed above a slow peddle. I would have liked a bigger rudder. The second is it's a little heavy...not Hobie heavy but a little. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a peddle drive yak that won't break the bank.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Stability,speed,Fisherman friendly design
Cons:
Weight,rudder size

Native Ultimate FX 15 Tandem

What makes this boat special is the fact that you can adjust the boat from tandem to solo configurations. When set up for solo it has tremendous amounts of storage which serves great as a camping boat. When set up as tandem you have the ability to bring someone along. This boat is very sleek but very stable. It has geartrac all around it allowing you to mount any geartrac related item anywhere on the boat. Something else that is nice is it comes with anchor trolleys on both sides of the boat. Haven't had the boat very long but like what I see so far.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Tandem or solo.
Cons:
I do not have anything bad to say about the boat

Native Slayer Propel 13 Hidden Oak

Overall I love the boat. It paddles easy and sits super stable for standing and fishing. The Propel drive is what makes this boat awesome, against the wind or current it makes your outings a breeze. The seat is super comfortable which allows you to be out there longer without returning with a sore butt or back.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Fast with the Propel, Easy to paddle without. Stable, with plenty of room for storage outside of hull
Cons:
Wish the rudder could come up onto boat in shallow water or for pulling boat up river bank. Price is competitive but I think the front hatch should come with the boat.
