Product Description and Specs

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.

Love this boat! Paddles well, the seat is unbelievable and stability is crazy. I can stand with both feet on one side of the boat. The dry pod is a awesome feature if you plan on adding a fish finder.

Been out a couple times for a few hours. First off the kayak is light compared to my last ATAK 140. Easy loading on my bed- extender.It tracks about the same as a 14ft kayak. It glides better than my ATAK. It maneuvers better than my 14ft kayak, maybe because its 12.7in. Speed is ok. Stability, holy s#&t. Im 6' 240lb and I stood right up. I leaned over and it felt like it was pushing back. Great secondary. Dry pod, junk drawer, seat and general layout is first class workmanship. I got the sand color. It is not just solid color, it has very small black flexs in it. Looks sweet. My big complaint is that the seat is too narrow, at least for me. Inside dimension from frame is 16". After a couple hours it starts bothering my hip. My ATAK never was a problem. Bonafide needs to look into widening the seat.

Really stable I am a small guy so using this kayak is like being on small boat. I do wish the back end wasn’t so blocky. When you stop paddling the back end turns with the wind. I need a small paddle for minor adjustments when stopped. Overall it’s fast light enough to car top and very stable.

Q: What is the actual height of the seat in the low and high positions (boat floor to sitting part of seat. How does this compare with the WS ATAK 120.
A: Hey there, thanks for your question! The height off the floor to the seat on the Bonafide SS127 is about 9 inches, while the ATAK 120 has a height of about 8 inches off the floor to the seat. They're fairly comparable, but the ATAK 120 would give you high, medium, and low options, while the SS127 has a high and low.

Q: Manufacturer's YOUTUBE vid says a rudder mount is possible and the existing foot pegs are retained. Do you have a rudder available for this new yak, and will you install it before shipping. If so, the cost? Thanx.
A: I ran out and tried a few different options, and it looks like the Feelfree Lure Rudder Kit will work with the Bonafide. Unfortunately, we can not install a rudder on the Bonafides before shipping them. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
