Product Description and Specs

Hands free fishing just got better with the Native Watercraft Slayer 13 Propel Kayak. The Slayer 13 Propel has the same open deck layout and fast stable hull as the Slayer series, plus an extra large rudder for quick maneuverability. The Propel system is the only pedal drive that can be pedaled in reverse, an essential capability when battling the catch of the day. The seat can be quickly adjusted forward or backward for a total travel distance of 11" and still have plenty of room behind the seat for tackle boxes. The Slayer 13 features ample foot pads on the deck to increase traction and reduce noise. The open bow trunk is perfect for Native fish bags, PFD storage, and comes with scuppers for drainage when punching through waves or surf, and with Native's groove track mounting rails located on each side from bow to stern customizing the Slayer is a cinch.

• Features Native's unique pedal drive system which can go in forward or reverse
• Uncluttered flat deck area provides plenty of room to stand comfortably
• Plenty of Groove Track Accessory Mounts provide almost limitless customizing options
• Open Bow Storage is perfect for storing PFDs or other accessories, and perfectly fits Native fishing bags
• Ample foot pads for traction and noise reduction

I'm comparing this to my old Hobie Mirage Outback since they are very close in size and design. I find the Native to be slightly less stable than the outback, but stable enough to be comfortable even in fairly windy / choppy conditions. The propel system is not as convenient to set up or remove as the Mirage drive, nor is it as smooth pedaling. I'm using this more for exercise than anything else, so the lower efficiency of the propel system will actually benefit me while at the same time I won't be able to make the distances I normally could do with the mirage drive due to exhaustion. I like the first class seat, but would have preferred one more like the Hobie Pro Angler with a complete aluminum frame, instead of the flimsy side straps that tend to slip and loosen on the first class seat. The ability to reverse is nice, but not a big factor unless you are fishing or having to maneuver in tight spaces. The hull appears to be well made and sturdy with a very nice weight capacity for its size. My greatest complaint is the rudder. Even in calm conditions, it is far too small and shallow for the size of the boat and is very slow to respond to any changes in direction and has a very large turn around radius. Considering where I live (South Padre Island) the conditions are usually quite windy and choppy, making the rudder even more of an issue, so much so, that despite Native's unwillingness to make a larger version of the rudder, I am having my local Hobie dealer modify my rudder with some spare plastic from one of his broken boats that will double its depth and hopefully solve the inability to track in a straight line and improve turn radius and response time and require less babysitting of the rudder handle overall. While I have several complaints about this boat, the only serious one that would make using the boat unpleasant is the rudder. If you are in calm waters, it may not be as much of an issue, but if you are in high wind / chop areas, you may want to seriously consider another boat or have a way to modify the rudder. Other than this issue, I like the boat fairly well and at least the propel drive is solid, whereas my old mirage drive pedal arms would break on a regular basis from the extreme stresses of my workouts and they were expensive to replace (broke 3 times over two summer seasons).

Slayer propel is OK. I haven't had it very long (3 weeks) and I have to replace a prop pin that is Bent. I haven't abused it so I am a little concerned about how strong these parts are. Hind sight 20/20 I think I would spend the extra and get the pro angler

The kayak is excellent, worth every penny, Im still trying to configure it for how I fish. Pedal drive makes life a lot easier. The yak is a little heavy, so pay attention as to how you will store and transport it. The shipping company could have communicated a little better. Overall a good experience, Thanks,ACK.

I love this Kayak for fishing. It's everything I wanted. I was standing up casting the entire 1st night I took it out and have been ever since, including the upper Niagara River. I took one star off only for the poor design of the rudder system. I immediately upgraded to the Boondox Rudder, but it's still a flaw since loading and unloading to a rooftop puts all the weight on the rudder and, more importantly, the cables! I've got some better cables on order and am working on a "quick release" system to just take the rudder on and off for loading purposes, so all will be well soon.
