The Native Folding Dash serves as a mounting platform for rod holders and electronics. The dash easily attaches to the Groove track and folds down into for easy reach or folds forward to be out of the way when standing or sitting and casting. The Folding Dash fits the Groove track in Ultimate 12, Ultimate 14.5 as well as all Manta Ray models.
This is a great concept that was nearly perfected. The hact that I can fold it up towards me is very convenient. Then push it down and forward when I need it out of the way. I put it on my Ultimate 14.5 and mounted so far a Scotty flush mount and cup holder. It has a bungee strap to hold loose tools while paddling too. What I dislike - it has three holes on each side for various mounting points, but the to legs do not line up with the groove tracks at all. So as your tracks slowly turn inward toward the bow, the dash sort of hangs off doing its own thing. Its still very sturdy and convenient. Also comes with another pair of groove slugs which I used to make a transducer deployment arm.
Great idea, but does not fit the native ultimate. I had to custom fit it with the help of a welder. It was a little disappointing that native/ACK would sell something that doesn't fit. The solution that was giving to me by native was to loosen the bolts holding everything in place and force the dash on the adapt-track. I made it work but not after spending another $100. Until its designed to fit the ultimate, it's not worth the money.
The product description says this fits the groove tracks in the Ultimate series. While it is true that the groove adapter slugs that come with the dash fit the groove, it is misleading. The legs for the dash are not wide enough to fit my 14.5 Ultimate. It can be made to work though by mounting on two of the larger rectangle mounting plates which then mount with the groove adapters.
