YakAngler got their first look at the new Malibu X-Factor fishing kayak at this year's ICAST. This kayak is sharp, the new features included on this model really look like Malibu has listened to the kayak fishing community, and I’m excited to get my hands on one.

I was surfing the internet this morning but I wasn't really able to find any pictures of their new model with the second hatch.  They have released in the dealers catalog which I recieved over the weekend.  So, I'm sorry for the lack of pictures, but you can see a few that I took while out at ICAST and a quick video that I shot as well.

Now here is an image of the deck from the new model.  Notice that the biggest change is that they have add the second deck hatch.
