The Native Watercraft Slayer 10 Propel kayak is the newest, and smallest, member of the Slayer family. The Slayer 10 Propel has many of the same features as the Slayer 13, but its lighter and more maneuverable. It features a wide open deck and a fast stable hull as well as an extra large rudder. The Propel system is the only pedal drive that can be pedaled in reverse, an essential capability when battling the catch of the day. The seat can be quickly adjusted forward or backward for a total travel distance of 11" and still have plenty of room behind the seat for tackle boxes. The Slayer 10 Propel features ample foot pads on the deck to increase traction and reduce noise. The open bow trunk is perfect for Native fish bags, PFD storage, and comes with scuppers for drainage when punching through waves or surf, and with Native's groove track mounting rails located on each side from bow to stern customizing the Slayer is a cinch.

Bought the Slayer Proper 10 in November and love it. Have taken it to FL and also fishing a couple of time here in TN. The primary reason for trading in my Slayer 12.5 was the weight. Unlike many fishermen, I don't have a truck and must load my 'yak on my Jeep Cherokee. I bought a non-slip, fuzzy bathmat from Walmart for loading purposes. I can carry the Propel 10 (w/out seat or Propel drive) by the side handle and load it from the driver's side of the Jeep by myself. The 12.5 was just too heavy to single-hand it to the roof. Very fast to pedal. Could use more rudder but that would affect scraping when launching. Also, the hatch in the front prevents the Propel drive from folding forward when standing (the hatch must be opened). But I am very pleased with the performance. There's a lot to be said about fishing w/out having a paddle in your way.
Great product! Looks great too!!
