The new Wilderness Systems Thresher 140 kayak is designed to take on big water, the efficiency and speed of the hull satisfies the need to paddle long distances. The voluminous rails that provide the stability and predictability needed for breaching ocean waves and enduring tumultuous swells while the keeled yet rockered bow and stern allow the Thresher to gracefully surf its way back to shore after a long day on the water. The Thresher 140 features the Flex Pod OS, a fully integrated, fully removable pod to store your fishfinder, battery, and cables. The transducer mount on the bottom of the pod fits through a generously sized scupper so even large transducers fit with no problem. The Thresher has an over-sized, covered bow hatch and a center pod console that can fit up to 8 foot rods. The rear tankwell is open for easy access to your gear or for a large fish bag. The Thresher is outfitted with the Phase 3 AirPro seating system and adjustable foot braces.

Thresher 140. Ok, just took my first paddle in my new Thresher 140 kayak. I must be in heaven man... where have I heard that before? I think it was Woodstock,lol. Pros & Cons: very stable, comfortable seating, handles so well especially with the rudder system. Love the foot peddles so much easier than the older type, surprisingly fast for the size & weight. kept right up with the sit insiders. Anxious to go ocean fishing with it. So satisfied with this kayak. Cons: Is a little heavier in the front than my Tarpon 140 was, so having to put it on my van roof was a little challenging, however not a big deal. I think in the future they might want to mold in a cup holder on the cover where you would store yout fishing rod. A very thought out kayak for going out in rough water. I'm really going to enjoy it.
