For years I’ve enjoyed fishing out of a small kayak on various rivers and other small waters inaccessible to larger watercraft. The problem with this was they were inaccessible to vehicles as well, which meant limiting the amount of gear you could bring along. For a serious fisherman this is a problem. This problem only grew once I upgraded to a larger kayak, a Hobie Pro Angler 12, and wanted to find an easy and efficient way to get it to these remote places. After trying some of the various kayak carts on the market with very limited success I was introduced to the C-TUG. One of the first things that caught my eye was the load capacity and larger diameter airless tires. Continue reading Big Boats On Small Water: A Possibility Brought to you by C-TUG
C-Tug has revamped their kayak cart and brought you and even better product! Previously C-Tug offered their cart with an inflatable tire that you could increase or decrease the tire pressure as you saw fit. Well now they have designed the cart with a puncture-free wheel that is even more durable, it’s called the Kiwi Wheel! The beautiful thing about these new Kiwi Wheels is that they will retro fit old C-Tug carts with the inflatable tires, so basically anyone can upgrade!
Just when you thought that was enough, C-Tug pulled something else out of their sleeve to help enhance the cart even more. The product is named the Sidewinder. Yep, just like the snake. This attachment connects to the Kiwi Wheel and allows for a much wider tire that gives you the ability to pull the cart over soft sand or mud without it becoming “bogged” down. The wider stance redistributes the weight over a greater surface area allowing the cart to stay up on top of the loose footing. See how it relates to the snake in name? Floats over sand…more nimble on loose surfaces…no?…ok, I’ll stop. Definitely give these products some consideration when looking for a new cart. You won’t be disappointed!
