Sneak Peek from YakAttack

Luther Cifers, owner and head mastermind behind YakAttack Gear, released a couple photos last Thursday of some of the latest stuff coming out of R&D.

First up is what they’re calling the “HardHead.” This is a crate cover that serves multiple purposes. First, the HardHead puts a solid cover on your crate. Should you find yourself upside down in the water, items in the crate will be secure. Second, the side rails allow mounting options for GearTracs and MightyMounts. Finally, the sliding cover itself can be used as a cutting board for bait, and doubles as sun protection for things (like soft plastics) in the crate. Pretty slick!

This is one of my favorite new things from YakAttack. Ok, well, it’s not all that new. What they did was “de-mast” the VISICarbon! What I’m calling the VisiLite is just the top light and flag from the VISICarbon. Instead of the mast, a standard size nut has been inserted into the bottom of the light. Now you can put this where ever you want. As the photo suggests, you can attach it to a camera mount or ScrewBall. I’m thinking this is awesome for the DIY guys, especially those of us on the West Coast that wish that the VISICarbon was another two feet taller. Perhaps you don’t want a taller light, and think they’re all too tall for you. This is a great answer, because now you can attach the light directly to a GearTrac or MightyMount and it will just be inches above the deck of your kayak.

The GlowCone is a diffuser for the existing light. The whole idea is to make the light look larger, and therefore more visible. Tests show that the light appears more visible at near distances.

The GlowCone will be available early next week, while the others will be out later this summer.

I almost forgot: Luther also mentioned a new DogBone designed for use with the MightyMount. This new DogBone is an ideal solution to give your light some extra height, or just give you a taller mounting point for other things. My first thought was to put a ScrewBall on one end, and raise my RAM rod holders higher off the kayak. This will also be available soon at YakAttack.us and other retailers.

crate looks good.
Shown to open sideways on kayak with rails running sideways.

I would have expected to open from front and hinge backwards. with rails fore and aft.

I need to rethink my vision.
Still looks very useful.
