Product Description and Specs

Bought this after extensively going over a number of kayaks. I wanted something comfortable. a lot of storage. rudder...and could handle the ocean should i go down to the coast for reds and speckles. So far Ive just used it on a small little stream in alabama for trout..and all I can say is.. I love it. Its comfortable (though it could use the seat from the atak). it glides very well. GET THE RUDDER. Its 15 and a half feet. It isn't going to turn on a dime. but I can sit in a trout stream thats no more than 30 yards wide, and turn it in half that space with the rudder. I reallly recommend that for sure. isn't to bad getting it moving. a couple strokes and you are up to speed pretty quick. TONS of room. I got the tiered tray to go inside the middle hatch, so I keep all my fishing gear in there.. store my rods in the kayak for transport. plenty of storage up front for extra stuff. I added two recessed rod holders behind the seat. the back has a TON of space as well. I keep a Yeti roadie cooler all the way at the back with a dry bag buckled on top of it..and between me and the cooler is plenty of space for a crate.. or at least in my trout fishing trips.. my miniature pincher sits back there. I probably will get an atak 140 for flying fishing from... but this is a GREAT boat. I couldnt be more pleased. its not light weight..and I have retrofitted my dual jetski trailer to hold kayaks.. and i get it on and off of that just fine.. but trying to get this up on a car or SUV by yourself could be a bit tricky. Overall, its awesome.

Top Question & Answer
Q: What is the ideal paddler's weight for the Thresher 155.
A: The weight capacity of the Thresher is 450 lbs. You just have to consider your weight + your gear and make sure you are not close to that limit. The 450 weight capacity does not mean that it will sink at that point but it will hender performance and maneuverability

Q: Did Wilderness Systems discontinue yellow as a color for 2016 kayaks? What size are the optional round hatches on the Thresher? Thanks
A: Hi, Thank you for the question. Unfortunately Wilderness Systems no longer makes a yellow kayak. They have transitioned their paint schemes into a "camoish" color with the exception of the lime and red kayaks.

Q: Hi thanks for the quick response. But did that includes the seat location? Because I own a tarpon 140 and it has total space of about 50 inches and 49 inch to peg. While my ride 135 has like 60 inches. 38 inches to peg and 42 inch total sounds really small for a 15 foot kayak
A: Yes, that is the length from the front of the seat base to the furthest part in the leg room area.
