Kayak Make & Model

Brand:
Wilderness Systems
Model:
ATAK
MSRP ($):
1,649.00
Length (ft):
12.5

Wilderness Systems impressed enthusiasts with their original 14-foot advanced tactical angling kayak, so this new model was eagerly awaited. It takes everything that made the original so great and compresses it down into a more compact 12-foot design. This means that you get the same stability as the original, but with even more maneuverability, not to mention comfort.

For the A.T.A.K. 120, Wilderness Systems have employed their proprietary S.M.A.R.T. Hull technology, which stands for stability, maneuverability, acceleration, responsiveness and tracking, which if of course the cornerstones of any good fishing kayak. For the 120 they have increased the rocker profile, which enables the kayak to navigate moving water better. Tracking is excellent, thanks to its defined keel line and it still has the low-profile design of the 140 that is perfect for wind shedding.

In terms of the cockpit, the 120 has the same roomy feel as the original 140. This is because the size reduction on the 120 compared to the 140 is only really evident in the front hatch and the stern. The once again included their AirPro MAX seat, only this time it is more adjustable and can be moved forward and backwards thanks to the new cam levers. This kayak is also compatible with their AirPro 3D set as it includes all the necessary mounting locations. Most of the deck is covered with non-skid pads to make walking safer as well. There is no need to worry about storage space on the 120 either as it has a large, covered bow hatch, center day hatch, rod storage at the back and even a secondary transducer scupper to give you even more flexibility for electronics. The 140 was a tough act to follow, but the A.T.A.K. 120 pulls it off with aplomb.

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