The new Wilderness Systems Thresher 155 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 155 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.

Bought this after extensively going over a number of kayaks. I wanted something comfortable. a lot of storage. rudder...and could handle the ocean should i go down to the coast for reds and speckles. So far Ive just used it on a small little stream in alabama for trout..and all I can say is.. I love it. Its comfortable (though it could use the seat from the atak). it glides very well. GET THE RUDDER. Its 15 and a half feet. It isn't going to turn on a dime. but I can sit in a trout stream thats no more than 30 yards wide, and turn it in half that space with the rudder. I reallly recommend that for sure. isn't to bad getting it moving. a couple strokes and you are up to speed pretty quick. TONS of room. I got the tiered tray to go inside the middle hatch, so I keep all my fishing gear in there.. store my rods in the kayak for transport. plenty of storage up front for extra stuff. I added two recessed rod holders behind the seat. the back has a TON of space as well. I keep a Yeti roadie cooler all the way at the back with a dry bag buckled on top of it..and between me and the cooler is plenty of space for a crate.. or at least in my trout fishing trips.. my miniature pincher sits back there. I probably will get an atak 140 for flying fishing from... but this is a GREAT boat. I couldnt be more pleased. its not light weight..and I have retrofitted my dual jetski trailer to hold kayaks.. and i get it on and off of that just fine.. but trying to get this up on a car or SUV by yourself could be a bit tricky. Overall, its awesome.
