New month, new gear! No more fear of missing out on the latest and greatest.
Keeping up with our new tradition of a monthly product pick blog to help you keep up with our constantly updating site inventory, we asked the ACK merchandising team which products to spotlight for January.
Here are January’s new product picks:
The SS127 fishing kayak from Bonafide delivers the Ultimate Fishability. It was designed by anglers, for anglers and is loaded with features you won’t find anywhere else. The hybrid cat hull design provides maximum stability without sacrificing paddling performance. The SS127 features the incredibly comfortable HiRise seating system. The ultra-high seat allows you to sit with your knees bent, taking pressure off of your lower back. If you want to really dig in and cover some distance, the SeatRack and foldable seat frame allow quick and quiet conversion to a lower position. The SS127 provides enough stability that you can stand on the gunwales for a better vantage point while sight casting. Surprisingly, a boat this wide and stable still paddles efficiently with exceptional tracking. The Bonafide SS127 is truly an incredible fishing kayak.
The New Lure II Tandem from Feelfree is an exciting new complement to the Lure Series of Kayaks. Based on the same amazing comfort, stability and versatility anglers demand out of a kayak – only x 2! With 2 complete cockpits featuring sonar pods, standing platform and patented Gravity Seats – the Lure II cuts no corners to offer the best for 2 anglers. Molded in handles, wheel in keel, rear storage for crate or cooler, uni-track system, rear rod holders are all standard features.
The Lure II is also designed as a solo kayak from the rear seat position with a multitude of options. In the solo position you can remove the front Gravity seat providing even more room for standing and storage, add a stand up bar and overdrive, and your Lure II replaces a garage full of boats! Stand, sit high, sit low, 1 or 2 anglers, pedal, paddle, motor and go fishing…..the Lure II will be the one boat that can truly replace them all.
Hobie has teamed up with Marine Mat to bring complete EVA deck pad coverage to some of their most popular fishing kayaks. Hobie’s EVA deck pad kits are custom fit to every curve of the kayak and deliver supreme comfort, traction and sound dampening qualities. The double layered, closed cell foam construction features a brushed finish and is mold, mildew and stain resistant. Applies using a strong peel-and-stick adhesive backing. UV stable in harsh climates.
The Backwater Assassin Carbon Fiber Hybrid Paddle, is the full-size version of its legendary predecessor, the Assault Hand Paddle, designed for form and function. Weighing in at 38 ounces, the Assassin Paddle adjusts from 230-240 cm, providing unsurpassed performance and versatility with the patented “hook and teeth” blade design and raised graphics package. The hook is great for grabbing a line in the water, pulling in decoys, pulling you closer to the dock, or making a tree limb easier to reach. The oversized blade helps to pull a lot of water when paddling and makes turning even easier. The unique blade design allows kayakers more freedom, more comfort and more confidence to challenge themselves and was designed for both high angle and low angle paddlers. The shaft is made of a carbon hybrid material to help reduce the overall weight and the oversized ABS injected nylon blade is hard enough to push off on any surface and not crack or flex. Is your lure stuck in a tree? No problem, just grab the branch. Too close to the rocks or oyster shells? No problem, just give a push.
ACK is your Fishing Headquarters! Show your love for ACK with the ACK Fishing Headquarters T-Shirt. Made of a super soft ring spun polyester/cotton blend. It features the ACK mountains and water logo on the front top left of the shirt and the fishing headquarters logo on the back. Just like your favorite old t-shirts, the more you wear this, the softer it gets.
As always, this is just a small sampling of our extensive new product inventory that gets updated daily.
