Our first shipment of the new Feelfree Lure has landed at ACK! I grabbed one quick as I could and got it unwrapped to take an up close look. Our Houston store team had a chance to play with one during the Boat Shows, but this was the first time they had made it to the ACK Warehouse.
The Feelfree Lure is clearly made for fishing – especially if you like standing and casting. Like many fishing kayaks, it’s got a adjustable elevated seating system, called the Gravity Seat, with a padded standing platform in front of it (along with a standing assist strap). The hull uses Feelfree’s tri-hull design, which they also utilize in their Moken series. Also, like the Moken series, the Lure’s have flush mounted rod holders with rod leashes and plenty of dry storage space. One nice addition they’ve made is a ridged rod keeper area near the bow to make it easy to lay down your rods while you paddle. See it below in the pictures.
At 11.5 feet, I see this ‘yak being a great fit for anglers who use the fly as well anyone use likes to kayak fish on rivers, lakes or even saltwater bays. Give the Feelfree Lure a look, and remember these are now in stock and ready to ship!
We got our first look at the new Feelfree Lure last weekend when it arrived at our booth for the Houston Boat Show and we can’t be more excited to finally get these in stock! We expect to have them later this month.
For those that haven’t heard, the new Lure is Feelfree’s latest kayak fishing creation. It follows a common trend in kayak fishing by adding a raised seat with four levels of adjust-ability. What I think is particularly cool is that the seat can be removed from the kayak and used as a camp chair or for a lunch break on the shore.
The Lure includes all of Feelfree’s latest technology including their uni-track system, wheel in the keel, molded in handles and rudder capability. It will be offered in an 11.5′ version, available later this month and 10′ version, available in either February or March.
Keep checking in for more updates regarding the availability of this new ‘yak! Texas paddlers interested in the Lure should come stop by any of our three Winter Boat Shows to place a pre-order and score a good deal. In the mean time, here are some pictures to check out from Feelfree’s warehouse:
