Seeing as the Cuda is one of their top-selling kayaks, it is no surprise that Jackson Kayak has put a lot of effort into the design of the Cuda HD. Right off the bat the Cuda HD offers more stability, increased length as well as more high performance features when compared to the original Cuda. The Cuda HD comes with a new hinging bow hatch system, rod tip tubes to protect gear as well as various standard RAM and flush mount rod holders. It enables you to add accessories and customize placement to keep everything within reach thanks to its YakAttack track systems, while its standing pad provides comfort when sight fishing. Seating is comfortable as it comes with an Elite Seat 3.0 system that has hi-low and fore-aft trimming. In fact, this seat is so comfortable you will appreciate the fact that it can be removed and used on shore as well. With its low profile hull the Cuda HD suffers less from the effects of wind and since it is larger than the Cuda it can not only hold more gear, but is also more user-friendly towards beginners. Finally, the Cuda HD comes standard with a Plano box, which fits easily into the underseat storage pockets.
