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.

slayer propel 10- The kayak is very maneuverable and easy to use. I can easily do 2.8-3 mph mph for an hour or more. My wife, who does not have enough arm strength to paddle a kayak in the wind, can easily get the Slayer Propel to go against against the wind without tiring. We are in our 60's and these kayaks will entend our kayaking for years.
I bought this kayak about a month ago and have used it about 5 times. It is very light and easy to load in my truck. The seat is very comfortable and I have been out for several hours and had no pain. The yak does not track well and I have to stay on the rudder all the time. I bought a short 2 foot paddle to help with the rudder but it wears my arm out during the day. Wanted to buy a cart but the ones for this yak are very expensive.
Well designed kayak. Despite being only 10 foot, the cockpit feels roomy and its easy to reach what you need. Propel drive system a winner. Fit and finish excellent. I rate it four stars because of the rudder. As many others have commented, the stock rudder is not up to the task. Turns are sluggish. Impossible to maintain a straight course without your hand on the rudder control. I replaced the rudder with a Boonedox -- night and day. The kayak now satisfies me in every way. But when is Native going to get wise and re-design their stock rudder to match the performance of the aftermarket rudders? Do the owners secretly own stock in Boonedox?
Slayer Propel 10. Awesome kayak. Arrived on-time directly to my house, which was great considering I had no way to transport it from the local dealer. Follow-up from customer service was also excellent. Wish I had bought this kayak earlier, It's great for fishing hand's free.
