Just purchased the Old Town Predator XL with the Minn-Kota Motor Base. Handles like a dream and trolling motor only used half a charge after 6 hours of continuous used. Made for a great hands free fishing trip. ACK staff was super helpful in getting me set up with all the accessories needed for my fish finder transducer mount. The shipping process went quickly and smoothly. Thanks ACK!!!!
Boat is great I love it the only complaint I have is that it has some deep scratches and a chunks taken out of the plastic from shipping.
Wow! What a great fishing kayak. I got it a couple months back and finally had the chance to take it out yesterday. This kayak is extremely stable. I was cruising down a river standing up the whole time. It also has plenty of space for my fishing needs. The motor is really quiet and can actually bring the kayak to around 4.5 to 5 mph at max speed. The fact that you can go in reverse is also great! The seat is super comfortable, too. I was on the water for 5 hours and had no discomfort at all. I was deciding between this kayak and the pro angler 14 , and I am very happy that I ended up going with this one. It ended up being a little more expensive than the pro angler 14 because I had to purchase a marine battery. I highly recommend getting a c-tug with this kayak. It will make your life a lot easier. Just to give you an idea of how I transport this kayak. I got the 600lb boat trailer from Haul-master, which fits this kayak perfectly. Once I got to the dock I simply unloaded the kayak onto the c-tug and dragged it into the water and undone the c-tug in the water. It worked the same way once I was done with my adventure. It's super easy and requires minimal effort. I also got the predator extreme Supernova fishing light to go with it. I spent about 3 hours installing it. It works and looks great! Customer service was excellent from Austin kayak. I am going to be using ACK for all my kayaking needs from now on!
What trailer do you recommend for transporting the Predator XL from home to the water and back? Ken
