Old Town "Loon 126 Angler"

Kayak Make & Model

Brand:
Old Town
Model:
Loon 126 Angler
MSRP ($):
1,099.99
Length (ft):
12.5

The Loon 126 Angler is the bigger cousin to the Loon 106 Angler, so it is slightly longer and heavier. However, this increase has been put to good use and the kayak is long enough to track well. It still remains maneuverable too, thanks to its rockered keel and the wider hull offers improved stability. The focus of the 126 Angler is very much about comfortable fishing and it achieves this with its remarkable Active Comfort System 2.0 seat. Not only does the seat feature some generous padding, but can also be adjusted exactly how you want it. It has a single adjustment point for fiddling with everything from the recline to the height of the leg support. Anglers will also appreciate the flow-through ventilation of this seat when out on the water in warmer weather.

Another great feature of the Loon 126 Angler is the work deck, which is not only removable, but also customizable. It can hold a battery in addition to gadgets, tackle boxes and other things. Since it has an integrated USB port which can be connected to a battery, you can also use it to charge your phone and other electronic devices. Trolling and bait fishing can be done with the two flush-mount rod holders that are situated right behind the cockpit Bulky items can be secured using its bow and stern deck bungees while the rear click-seal hatch is perfect for items that need to stay dry. In addition, the Loon 126 Angler features a durable three-layer construction, bow and stern carry handles and anchor trolley system, which makes it even more appealing to kayak enthusiasts.

Great replacement for my Loon 138

Sold my Loon 138 because it was getting to be too much for me to manhandle by myself. The 126 is light enough for me to easily load and unload. Paddles effortlessly. Not quite as much room as the 138 so a little less room for fishing equipment

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Fast, stable, durable, big cockpit
Cons:
none

    • These wetsuit surfing booties work pretty well. A pain to take off, though. [attachment]
