Love my Propel 12. I use it for bass and crappie fishing. Especially like being able to go in reverse to keep off the bank or fish cover. So easy to keep pedaling while your fishing or snacking between fishing holes. Easy to pedal even on very windy days and cover lots of water. I'm 6'1" 205 very comfy very stable lots of storage added 3 rod holders to mine.

I demo'd an Ultimate 12 Propel today. The dealer made the mistake of sending me to a local lake that has a lot of weed buildup in it. When running into weeds, the propeller just stops cold and the front clamp on the drive releases. After 1/2 hour of stopping and pulling weeds off the prop, I concluded that this drive system isn't suitable for any weed infested areas. I've never tried a Hobie Mirage drive in weeds but it seems like it should work better.

After20 plus years of paddling my Cobra Fish-N-Dive kakak; I finally made the move to the awesome Propel system designed by Native. The Ultimate 12 is just that" the Ultimate" kayak from the Native line of yaks, the Propel system is so easy to put into action; and the smooth and quick response is totally awesome; I now have zero issues with paddling large amount of miles on the water, getting to my far away favorite success fishing holes is now a mere quick hard pedal to that location. Huge amount of room inside the Ultimate 12 propel; just taking some more time and experimenting with where to locate all of your accessories, ie; rod holders,fish finders, etc. The Native Ultimate IMOI is a step ahead of the Hobie Pro Angler, simply because of the reverse capabilities with the propel prop!

I purchased a Native Propel 12 in March of 2013 and could not be happier. I previously fished our area lake in a Merrimack canoe but was always hindered by the fact that you could not fish and move at the same time. This problem was corrected with your product. I fish all day and am much less tired than when I fished in the canoe. Everyone asks where I purchased this product and I tell them. As far as speed is concerned, I can throw up a huge wake when I decide to get on it. It is much faster than a canoe. Because I fish many times in shallow water, I added outriggers for stability and I can stand and fish with ease. By the way, I am pushing 64 years old, so anyone can use this product with ease.

Top Question & Answer
Q: Could I purchase the propel system separately? And if you could how much would it cost?
A: No, for this in particular you would only be able to purchase the kayak and the propel. Reason being is that this a 2012 model which are slightly different than the new models. We are able to sell individual propels but they are only newer models. This would have to be purchased together.
