The Native Watercraft Manta Ray 12 Angler Kayak incorporates a sleek V hull design to provide stability and smooth sailing. The Manta Ray comes with the Tag a Long Wheel allowing for easy transport to and from the water without scraping your boat. Instead of a DVC seat, the Manta Rays will now come with the DVC Deluxe seating system which will include side pads that support your hips and provide comfortable arm rests, a new adjustment system that will make it easier to control the seat back position, and a wedge beneath the seat that gives support under your thighs. The Groove, Native's new accessory system, will allow a range of accessories to easily slide on and off the anodized aluminum rails, including rod holders, mounting plates and a dashboard. These new additions plus the Manta Ray 12s sleek V hull design that provides stability and smooth sailing make this the perfect choice for everything from river paddling to skipping over waves at the coast. The Angler package includes two flush mount rod holders, one Scotty Baitcaster and an Anchor Kit.

Review: I have had my MR12 for about 5 months now. I have taken it out in many different conditions. Windy, choppy, salt, fresh, calm, open ocean, river. Overall I will give this kayak an A-. It is the toughest, most durable kayak I personally have ever used/owned. I have owned or used many of the big name fishing kayaks. OK, Hobie, WS, Cobra, and Malibu. As far as durability none come close. This is some thick material on the MR12. Cobra is pretty close but not a great kayak otherwise. However the thickness of the shell of the MR12 makes it one heavy heavy beast. You really need a trailer or truck for this yak if you want to use it by yourself. I am a fairly strong guy and it challenges my strength. I have made an easy load/off load on my tuck so i am good. If you use roof racks this could be a problem. But if you like fishing oyster beds or jetties etc you can feel confident the MR12 will do the job and not get bashed up. I recommend getting the rudder since it is a heavy short boat. Tracks very well with rudder. Because of its weight it handles rough chop and waves well. Really you dont even notice. Very stable. It is pretty fast considering its weight and length. I had a heavy cooler and I am 190lbs and kept up front of a group of 15 kayaks some being touring and fiberglass. I am a strong paddler but even so,, it is fairly fast and out performs all the other fishing kayaks I have tried. Very well laid out and of course the seat. The seat cant be beat. Unbelievably comfy. This is a great rec and fishing kayak that I would recommend.

Review: Native Manta Ray 12 Angler Kayak. My new Native Manta Ray 12 Angeler Kayak is perfect. I ordered it and it was promplty shipped out and delivered as describe. Ordering from ACK was an easy and enjoyable experience. The website is very user friendly. For the few questions I had when I called ACK, the staff was extremely helpful and informative. I would definately order from ACK again.

Review: Holy cow what a Yak'n boat. All previous reviews considered prior to purchase held true. Marvelous craft . The best of both worlds, fishing ( angler version) and river excursions. Handles well and very stable. Only regret was not purchasing this boat with a factory installed rudder. If you buy a MantaRay, by all means drop a couple Of $ for the rudder. Money well spent. I bought and installed the kit. Also recommended. Peace be with you.
