The Ocean Kayak Torque Motorized Kayak has been upgraded for 2013 with the new comfort Hybrid Seat and new ModPod for even more angling configurations. Combine that with two flush mount rod holders, paddle keepers, a large bow hatch, and bungee tank well and the Torque is a fishing machine. Designed around the Minn Kota motor and its innovative Maximizer technology, the Ocean Kayak Torque puts all of the power right at your fingertips. With infinitely variable speed control you can troll for fish at your own pace. Fishing in tight spots? Don't worry, you can hit reverse and your ability to maneuver just got easier. And, if you'd rather paddle, simply remove the motor, drop in the skeg, grab a paddle and you're all set. The Ocean Kayak Torque is so much fun you may even put your fishing pole down and just sit back to enjoy the ride. Discontinued 2013 model.

I have been fishing for the better part of 65 years in both freshwater and saltwater. I fished the FLW Bass series for 3 years but I have never enjoyed fishing anywhere as much as I have in the short time I've had the Torque. This kayak is amazing. My initial worry was that the battery would drain too low to get me home after a long day as I have two pieces of electronics also hooked to the battery. I went fishing for Redfish on New Years day and was out for almost 8 hours. When I put the kayak in the water my battery meter read 12.5 volts. When I pulled the kayak out of the water, 8 hours, 17 bull Redfish and some 15 miles later, the meter read 11.8 volts. Amazing. I may never launch my 17' Mako center console again. I am a kayak fisherman forever. I would absolutely recommend the Torque to anyone who wants to fish from a kayak but may be just a little too old to paddle all day.
I LOVE THE OCEAN KAYAK-HAVE HAD IT THE LAKE AND WILL BE GOING IN THE OCEAN IN IT THIS SUMMER-I CAN'T WAIT!! ITS SO EASY TO USE - YOUR HANDS ARE FREE TO FISH!!!!!
I have had my Torque for two years and generally love it. I have fitted my boat with a GPS depth/fish finder. It is great for fishing with or against th drift and allows great manueverability while freeing your hands for castting. Since I am pushing 70, I really appeciate the effort I save from paddling; I can stay out for more than 4 hours without a problem. All said there is room for improvement: The stays in the seat have worn loose and punched through the backing - I have taken mine out, coated them with epoxy and put them back in. The boat drafts too deep and is hard to paddle without the motor - maybe improve the hull design? A swivel seat would make it easier to raise and lower the rudder and access the rear storage area. Finally, I have put in a low camera mount in the front so I can get some good pictures of all the fish that I can pull in with this great watercraft!
The Ocean Kayak is everything it states. the Ack people were more than willing to go overboard(so to speak) to help or answer any questions I had. Kayak was shipped from texas to New York no Problem!!
