Review: 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!

Review: 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.

Review: Great boat. Very utilitarian. Tired of paddling? Well Pedal then. Tired of pedaling? Stand up and paddle. You get the idea. It's a do it all boat. The straight Ultimate 12 tracks much better with the rudder deployed but the propel is good too.

Review: Great Boat - Great Dealer/Distributor I waited until I'd had the Propel 12 for 2-3 months before this was written so that I had time to shake it down and evaluate it decently. Bottome Line: This craft is serving the purpose I intended for it very well. I first needed a kayak/hybrid canoe that I could take out fishing on a TVA impoundment during the winter. Due to low water levels and a preference to just winterize it in the Fall, I don't bother with the engine powered boat during cold weather. As such, I wanted a boat I could quickly get into the water and something that would give me good mobility to cover different areas. I didn't want to bother with engines issues and I wanted a boat that could be manually lifted into the back of my small truck by one person - this so I could travel to different areas of water. The Propel 12 does all of that very well. I believe I can cover 3 to 4 miles with this craft in an hour, depending on how much I drift fish, troll, or "push" it). Many times, I just find myself wanting to explore. I think this is to paddling (on still water) as biking is to walking. For the fishing role, the design is very nice. I'd never tried out a Propel system, so the first time was when I put it into the water. I couldn't stop grinning, it worked so well - far exceeding my expectations. Especially nice for fishing, since it leaves my hands free (to warm up in the wintertime and/or to fish/untangle line!) and lets my hands remain decently dry for a manually powered craft. I typically only use a paddle when putting in and taking out (to get out of the shallow water before I drop the Propel unit). I really like it. AND Austin Kayak made the whole info gathering and ordering/shipping process very easy. Any quesiton I had, they fielded. I was dreading the ordering shipping process, since I'd never thought about getting one of these that way before. It was the only way though, since they don't sell them near where I live. ACK had an accurate order over the phone in minutes. They installed the hardware that needed installing, and then they had it shipped within a day or two. I think I had it within a week. Great boat + Perfect Service at ACK = Great Buying Experience
