 Product Description and Specs

The Old Town Predator MX Kayak is the ultimate kayak for sportsmen delivering a perfect platform for fishing and on-water sporting. The Predator MX, or Mixed Water, features a slightly more rounded hull, designed for moving water conditions such as rivers without sacrificing the Predator's class leading stability and performance. The versatile Element seating system gives you that stability while seated, yet can be quickly flipped out of the way for poling, sighting and casting. The Predator MX also features a spacious Exo-Ridge deck providing the perfect standing platform, room for extra gear or a furry companion. The side-mounted paddle storage, dual tackle holders, dual-tip rod holders at the bow, side-mounted retainer bungees, molded paddle rest, removable mounting plates, and a large bow hatch with the Click Seal cover make this the ultimate fishing kayak.

**Amending my original** I am new to kayak fishing and did a considerable amount of research prior to purchasing this vessel. I flipped a standard kayak with a rounded hull and wanted something comfortable and stable for fishing. I found it in the Predator. I fish the Des Plaines river in Illinois. This can be treacherous and fast moving. This craft is stable, rock steady and durable. You can stand up but you still need good balance or you will fall out. The kayak won't flip over. Heavy, sturdy and worth the price. It is extremely comfortable and I have sat in it for hours with no discomfort. Roomy, wide and can hold pounds of gear. It is heavy so keep that in mind if you plan to cartop carry.

Great service from ACK staff. They were very knowledgeable and patient answering all of my questions. Shipping was fast and hassle free. I ordered on a Monday, and it arrived by Thursday. The MX is my second kayak (I started out with an Ascend FS128T) and I could not be happier with the purchase. I debated on this and the Predator 13, but ultimately I wanted the wide open area of the MX. Many of the reviews note that the MX is heavy. Coming out of that Ascend, I feel like the MX is light. I can actually pick this up by myself. The plates offer customization options that allow you to try new rigging ideas and if it doesn't work, toss the plate. You don't have to worry about that permanent pad-eye or Scotty base that is just not in the right spot. The first day I tried it out in a small pond. Even in high winds I was able to keep it moving with little or no effort. The MX glides through the water and it is dead silent as it moves. If I could paddle quietly there would be no sound at all. Tracking is what you would expect on a 12' yak. I actually had to change my paddle method since this is so much easier to maneuver than the Ascend. Stability is top notch. My Ascend was super stable, I had no problem standing up in it and paddling, casting, or ridding myself of beer waste. However, the MX has the Ascend beat hands down in the stability department. I am more likely to step off the yak into the water before I ever tip it over. The seat is the most comfortable I have used in a kayak. I think it beats my buddy's Native Slayer seat. I cold easily spend a day on the water with no back problems whatsoever. If you are looking for a great all-around fishing kayak you cannot go wrong with the MX. Add in the great staff at ACK helping you through the buying process and you have a winning combination.

Top Question & Answer
Q: Is there any way to put a rudder on the predator MX
A: Unfortunately, this is not suggested by the manufacturer. Due to the back handle, there is no place to mount the rudder.

Q: With the lack of a rudder option is this a viable kayak for coastal / offshore fishing?
A: This boat is best for moving water in rivers or creeks but is stable enough for coastal fishing. However, we would recommend the Predator 13 as a good rudderless offshore option: http://www.austinkayak.com/products/12677/Old-Town-Predator-13-Kayak.html
