We checked out the Tarpon 130x at Outdoor Retailer 2015. David Maughan of Wilderness Systems walked us through all the updates to this classic fishing kayak.
The updated injection molded handle design is extremely solid, and they've added a Paddle Park that is popular on many of their other fishing kayak models.
The Tarpon 130x now has a FlexPod, allowing anglers to easily add a Torqeedo motor or swap their fish finders between other Wilderness Systems fishing kayaks that also have the FlexPod.
If you want the motor in the FlexPod, you can now add your fish finder to the lower console that has a secondary transducer scupper.
The Tarpon 130x now has the AirPro MAX seat. The Tarpon 130x version does not have the high-low option, but you can move the seat forward or aft to trim the kayak.
We were extremely impressed with the Tarpon 130x, and can’t wait to get a little more seat time in one so we can do a full review.
