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

Specs:

  • Width: 34" 86.36 cm
  • Weight: 57 lbs 26 kg

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:
na
