The key to using the C-Tug is to watch the videos, how to put it together and how to use the straps. I put my Jackson Big Tuna on the C-Tug and it hauls the 14ft, 90-110lb kayak with no problem. I've pulled it through grass, dirt, wet and dry sand, even into the water to launch. A must have accessory for any kayak angler or someone going out solo.
Austin Kayak customer service is as always...top notch. This cart is robust and I feel will hold up well. It tracks easily and I have tested it out by jumping it over curbs....rocks and so on. The instructions for how to strap to the kayak have been upgraded on a video....one needs to watch the video or you will not be able to tighten the straps enough to keep kayak on the cart. While this cart will probably work out OK for me it does not really fit the hull of the new Big Game Prowler II. I had a friend who offered to let me try his C- Tug cart to make sure it fit. I wish I had tried it first. This is a good cart but one does need to make sure it fits the hull of the kayak you own.
Love that this can be broken down and stored in the hatch of the Kayak. Easy assembly right out of the box. Can't wait till spring to use it.
Wonderful upgrade from cabelas model which was clunky and you had to connect your own straps every time you went out which although I got good at was still very inefficient because I was taking the straps off my trailer and putting them on the cart and vice Versa. This also risked with the old cart I was using losing the straps which could have been catastrophic since I load my cart on the back of the chupacabra. In regard to the fit with the Diablo chupacabra it's simply perfect. No issues with it lining up or rolling out. The way the holding / landing pads open up it adapts to your hull. The no air tires are also less bulky and lower maintenance. Good gear costs more for a reason most of the time, because it's better. It's cheaper to buy right the first time than make a mistake and have to replace. Buy this cart
