With the introduction of the “Ultimate FX” series of kayaks last year, I knew it was only a matter of time before Native Watercraft added the hands-free fishing capabilities of the Propel drive. Last month at ICAST 2015, we got our first look at their prototype “Ultimate FX 13 Propel” and some of the cool additions they have made specifically to the Propel version.

Jameson talks to Woody Callaway of Native Watercraft about their newest Propel series fishing kayak, the Ultimate FX 13 Propel.

The Ultimate FX 13 Propel uses the same Propel drive as the "Slayer Propel 10."

The Ultimate FX 13 Propel has a new built-in battery shelf that is unique to this model.

You lose the high and low seating option of the original Ultimate FXs, but this allows you to position your feet comfortably on the Propel Drive.

There is plenty of under-seat storage in the Ultimate FX 13 Propel, especially when you use their cooler bag.

The Ultimate FX 13 Propel adds a new Thwart Box for added storage of your rods and gear behind the seat.

After seeing this kayak at ICAST 2015 we were  pumped to test this kayak out on the water at Outdoor Retailer this week. Sadly, this is their only prototype and Woody said it would not be on the beach at the open water demo. Hopefully we'll get our hands on one soon so we can give it a thorough run through.

    • I use the Ram 2007 holder with Yakattack track. I will eventually get a longer extension to raise it up another 6" or so. [image]
