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.
Great Kayak ,perfect for throwing in back of pick up and still enough stability/capacity for a bigger paddler (I'm 6'3" -250lb) and I find it very stabil..seat is comfortable.If you browse YouTube you may find a video with a concern about the seat deforming the area where your weight bears on the rails it sits on...this has been addressed by Native with the addition of reinforcments under the seat along its mounting rails-I have had NO deformation (and again,6'3" @250#).Overall fit and finish great,Propel unit if THE BOMB for fishing...you have such great control of boat position.Only things I would like to see addressed are the rudder needs more area for better tracking (I installed a Boondox and it solved my concern) and I am not thrilled that Native charges so dearly for their accessories,whigh end Kayakhen you pay a premium price for a "High End" Kayak you shouldn't have to pay this much for some extra seat storage,other companies are including these items with their boats.As far as purchase from Austin Kayak....I have nothing but praise for them...fast and well packaged delivery(at NO charge!) and great customer service.
Great fishing or touring kayak. Caught a 12lb. channel cat from it the day it was delivered. Would recommend for anyone looking at fishing kayaks.
