The Native Watercraft Manta Rays 14 includes 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 provides padded 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. The Manta Ray 14 is easy to paddle, tracks well and offers exceptional maneuverability. The rockered hull rides gracefully up and over waves. Plus, added bow volume delivers a drier ride that you would expect from most sit-on-tops. The Manta Ray 14 is equally at home on freshwater lakes and easy rivers.

just went to a demo day ,I tried a manta ray 14 , tarpon 140 and a redfish 14. For fishing the manta ray will be best . awesome seat and fishing ergonomics and flat surfaces for add ons . tracks straight , glides great , stability great, huge tankwell , I prefer the tarpon orbitz bow hatch though . T-tracks are sweet too. I like the tarpons seat area hatch , windcocking was almost non existant on the tarpon and manta ray but bad on the redfish. The refish and manta ray were best on wavebreaking due to high swept bows. stability was good on all .Redfish 14 had the best cockpit to Me.Its a new manta Ray 14 for Me very soon, My old redfish 12 is soon to be a loaner.
Outstanding customer service from questions answered/product information, ordering, shipping (great packaging!) to receipt! Product is even greater than I expected and anticipated. What a ride! Fantastic! Just used in the Adirondack Mountains in New York State and thoroughly enjoyed! A gift my husband and myself to better appreciate being outdoors and all nature's gifts. Great product and a pleasure working with Austin Kayak -long distance! The experience is truly appreciated. Thank you!
