Cuda (Preview)

My Cuda by Jackson Kayak was delivered to the dealer on Wednesday and I made the short trip today to pick it up. The camo color scheme came out great, enough visibility to be seen yet still be stealthy.
•Length: 14.3 ft
•Width: 29.75 wide
•Weight: 74 lbs
•Capacity: 400 lbs
•22 inch wide flat standing platform

This kayak is ideal for fly fisherman with the ability to stand and fish as well as all of the features that are built into it with the fly fisherman in mind.

On the front of the Cuda is an integrated rod tip protector which will come in handy when you use the molded in fly rod stagers (one on each side).
The center hatch has the ability to store items inside the kayak and within easy reach. With the seat in the high position it makes it possible to stand straight up with ease as well as put your fly boxes under it and within reach but still out of the way.
The Cuda is designed for the person who would like to stand up and fish, there is a nice smooth surface to stand in and it is extremely stable.
There are so many well thought out features put into the Cuda that I will save for the review, so as soon as I get a few outings in I will share the report with you.
Merry Christmas,
