I've had the Slayer 12 for about 6 months and have fished around
hobies and wilderness, i wouldn't trade it for any other. Great YAK,
Great Investment, Well Worth It!
Awesome kayak! Tracks great, fast for a fishing kayak, and very
stable. Lots of room and everything is accessible while on the
water. I have had several kayaks before the Slayer but I think I
have found the "one". I can't say enough about the first class seat.
It is by far one of the most comfortable seat on the market. Eight
hour trips are no problem in this kayak.
One word ------------------- awesome! Tracks well, stable, space
efficient, superb seat, quality construction, and fun! Highly
recommend this kayak.
great boat a little heavier than i
thought but is still fast enough for
me. also the boat is stable
enough to stand and paddle
around for a better point of view.
I've only had it out a couple of times, (winter in VA), I
love it. It tracks well and is very stable. It is much
faster than my last cheap yak. When the weather turns
I'll be out on the Chesapeake Bay. The open bow well
is exactly what I wanted. I can't think of anything I
need to store inside the boat for a day fishing trip so
anything in the bow is easily accessible. The first class
seat was what attracted me first. If you sit still (fishing
or hunting) for any length of time, it doesn't matter
how thick the padding is on a plastic seat, it gets hard,
not a problem in the Slayer. You could nap in the seat
if you are so inclined. 5 STARS!!
First fishing kayak and I really
like it. It is a little heavier than
I expected but the tow wheel
helps a lot. Excellent seat and
plenty of storage options for
gear. Very configurable without
having to drill holes in the
body. Excellent for someone
who wants to tinker with his rig
all the time.
I now own this Slayer, and a
Native Manta Ray 11, and a
Jackson Coosa. This Native
Slayer is preferred over the
others because of comfort, and
a good tradeoff of tracking and
turning ability...similar to the
Manta Ray. I would have
preferred a sealed
compartment. And yes, it
sorely needs a clip in paddle
holder!! All these kayaks in this
class are heavy, but once in
the water, this one is overall a
I really like the Slayer. It has
enough room for me and my
boys. I am 6` 2`` and my boys
are 3 and 5. I only wish it came
with paddle holder.
I replaced another kayak with the new Slayer. I am really
enjoying this kayak. I originally planned on a hybrid, but when
this one came out I knew I wanted it. The Slayer is extremely
stable. A little slower than my last kayak, but not an issue with
me. Tracks just fine to me. I like a SOT, but was cramped for
space in my old yak. The roomy floor space is great, love the
tackle box holders beside the seat and between your feet. The
seat is awesome. I have added an anchor trolly(from ACK, its a
good one) and my fish finder. The only downside I've found is too
little access to the inside. My deer feeder battery w/box will not fit
through the small hatch and your pretty much stuck with using
well nuts for the trolly and other accessories you want, something
I try to avoid if possible, so far so good however. I've gone back
to using AA batteries for my FF, small enough to fit in the hatch.
ACK service is great, had a small broken part on mine, which was
promptly replaced w/better hardware(bungee hook).
My 3rd kayak. The slayer is perfect.
Stable. Paddles well. I can stand up.
Sitting is extremely comfortable. Very
functional. Added trolley, rod holders,
stick holder, paddle holder. Spend the
money and get the Slayer. You will not
regret it. And, it gets great gas
