Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 10

Kayak Make & Model

Brand:
Native Watercraft
Model:
Slayer Propel 10
MSRP ($):
2,299.00
Length (ft):
10

The Native Watercraft "Slayer Propel 10" fishing kayak is the newest, smallest, and lightest member of the Slayer Propel family. The Slayer Propel 10 has many of the same features as the Slayer Propel 13, but its lighter and more maneuverable. It features a wide open deck and a fast stable hull as well as an extra large rudder. The Propel system is the only pedal drive that can be pedaled in reverse, an essential capability when battling the catch of the day. The seat can be quickly adjusted forward or backward for a total travel distance of 11" and still have plenty of room behind the seat for tackle boxes. The Slayer Propel 10 features ample foot pads on the deck to increase traction and reduce noise. The open bow trunk is perfect for Native fish bags, PFD storage, and comes with scuppers for drainage when punching through waves or surf, and with Native's groove track mounting rails located on each side from bow to stern customizing the Slayer is a cinch.

Features:

  • Propel Drive
  • Slide Adjust Seat
  • Open Bow Hatch
  • Quiet Stable Hull
  • Super Seal Plugs

Specs:

  • Width: 34" 86.36 cm
  • Weight: 57 lbs 26 kg
  • Depth @ Beam: 13" 33cm
  • Capacity: 500 lbs 227 kg

Perfect for me

I've had this since March 2015. I purchased one for me, and one for my wife because we were looking for stable rides to go kayaking, and wanted a pedal drive system as well. I also purchased mine with the intention of getting into the niche sport of kayak fishing, and I couldn't be happier with my decision(s)!

I'm a big guy (5' 10" @ 250 LBS.), and am very comfortable standing in this kayak. If you're looking for stability, look no further. I've taken them into fresh and salt water, and am still amazed at how the boats handle rocky bays, and wakes from larger craft.

The only 2 short comings in my opinion, and based on how I use the boats, has to do with the steering and how incredibly wide they are. Since they are so wide, you really cannot comfortably paddle these boats. So if you want to take a quick dip in a lake (like me, since I live on one) for a quick fishing fix, you are pretty much forced to lug out the propel drive. With all the equipment you need to drag with you, a cart is a worthwhile investment (which I still need to do). Also, the steering isn't as nimble as I would like, but fair given the size of the vessel. I bet the rudder upgrades I've seen around take care of this with ease.

Overall, the boats are great for what I'm looking for, and I don't doubt you'll love one too! The pedal drive, with reverse, just cannot be matched in my opinion.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Stable, Roomy, Comfortable, Fun to pedal
Cons:
Pricey, Steering - not agile, Tough to paddle

The buck (slayer) stops here!

I had a canoe, an el-cheepo pelican fishing kayak, a porta-bote and now this. By far the most enjoyable fishing vessel compared to the rest. Comfy, hands free, reverse is a game changer, stable and looks good. A real head turner!
Like riding a recumbent kayak. Pricey but well worth it! The Mercedes(or Cadillac) of fishing kayaks. I bought it sight unseen nor tested one. Purely reading from reviews and watching you tube. Pulled the trigger on this gamble....and how glad I did.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Reverse!!!! Stable!!
Cons:
Hard time trying to find kayak carriers to fit the wide hull.

First impression ,fun but pricey

It's a fun Kayak but costs way too much for what it is. Try one before you buy. Pedaling is hard on my surgically butchered hip as I have screws installed in my hip. The pedal feels like it is at the wrong angle and there is no seat height adjustment on my model.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Easy to manuver, light weight, my dog rides on the back, stable
Cons:
Prop is a pain in weeds, Bottom of boat scratches easily. needs more handles for one person to load on cartop

Small in size, HUGE in performance!!!

I wish blessed enough to be the first one to fish this kayak in a tournament and must say I was very skeptical to say the least. Most people see a 10ft kayak and not many positive thoughts come up but Native did a amazing job. Coming from the Slayer Propel 13 I was spoiled but the 10 did everything the 13 did plus a few things. 1st its so much lighter than any pedal power kayak on the market which helps a ton, 2nd is it turns on a dime, you can pretty much do donuts in this kayak. Extremely stable and fast with all the room you would expect from a much larger kayak. This is my go to tournament kayak from this day on.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Fast, Super Stable, comfortable, Large cockpit, plenty of storage, extremly light and easy to handle also turns on a dime
Cons:
