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.

Great for the bay or lake I fish the bays southern California. Overall it is a good yak you really need to keep on top of your propel drive system. My drive had zero grease on the low gears glade I took it apart before the second outing. Handles great reverse is awesome. It does scratch and dent with ease.. and the front part that you use to beach on the sand needs to be thinker. I'm going to apply some flex epoxy where it hits the sand after 6 uses it is extremely scratch up and I don't want a hole to show up. Extremely stable. Been catching lots of fish. Rudder could be longer to make turning easier but it is still ok.. main thLing is just how easy things scratch or cut in to the hull. The plastic seams to soft. Good over all. Would I buy over hobi probably because I love reverse. Oh and weight is good I'm a mile aged man and I can move it around alone. Oh last thing the track system sounds cool but 90% of the track is unusable Because you legs need room to peddle.. it is very hard to use the tracks around the main area still trying to figure that out
I purchased this unit because of the lite weight with the ability to peddle and be relatively hands free. I first rented an out back which I felt was pretty hefty and sorta like a workout. I rented the propel 13 and the 10 in the same day. I would rather be fishing from the 13 but the weight was burdensome. I like the propel 10 because I can put it in the back of my Nissan truck by myself and drive to the lakes or salt without tagging along a trailer which some of these gov operations around here cost 10 buks just to park the trailer. The seat can get to ur back a little but just stand up for a spell and re adjust. Standing up is a breeze but get ur sea legs in shallow water first.I brought along my gps and I can easily maintain 3.0 mph on flat water. I do however spend too much time with my hands on the rudder 50%-75% of the time my left hand is busy avoiding fishtailing. I will modify the rudder or buy the optional one. Wheels for this unit are available but I built my own. I don't like tipping the yak on its side to plug in the after market ones so making ur own is a challenge. I like the hatch for storing the wheels. Lots of room in there. It doesn't come with a place for ur paddle ,no big deal. The larger range of motion by peddling like a bicycle is a little cumbersome as compared to the hobie peddle system ie mounting stuff on those pre installed side rails but not a deal breaker. I would like to see a more scratch resistant finish on this unit as it does get scratched rather easily but it sure is pretty. It might sound like a lot of complaining but I really like this yak and am looking forward to a great summer of fishing. Knowledgeable and efficient folks at ACK.
