Predator 13 Features

Durability: The Predator is extremely durable, like most polyethylene models. Its tri-hull design gives superior stability and tracking while in the water.

Scuppers: This model features 8 scupper holes and are uniquely designed to keep water from entering into the cockpit area. They have a patent on the design and its one of its great qualities, including a scupper transducer.

Rod Holders: Offers plenty of dual-tip rod holders at the bow and side mounted retainers. Very convenient storing and casting.

Storage: Molded paddle rests on the side, and a very large exo-ridge tank well. Has an area for the installation of a trolling motor if you want one. Its hatch is quite large with enough space for gear bags and locks securely in place. Center console has room for many accessories, including fish finders/ GPS. Has a recessed scupper port which is designed to allow for a side imaging transducer. 6 removable mounting plates allow for extremely easy rigging.

Positives

As you can see, the Predator is loaded with features. Its main strengths include its 425 load capacity, stability, and storage space. There is room for tons additions and accessories.

Another huge perk to the Predator, is the seating system. It has three adjustments, and has the ability to accommodate larger anglers. When it comes to fishing, this is vital, because you don’t spend all of your time paddling, and you don’t spend all of your time casting or jigging either. The first seating angle is a travelers angle, and is designed to be upright and allow you to row with ease. The second angle is called “Attack”, and is designed for you to move around freely in the cockpit and fish. The third angle pushes the seat all the way back, giving you additional room to cast. This makes the model one of the more popular fly fishing kayaks on the market.

Negatives

This model is thick, and is designed for stability and capacity, but not speed. Think of it as a battleship, so if your the racing or white water type, your better off going for the Vapor or the Wilderness Systems Tsunami.

Another draw back is its weight, and the price. This is quite heavy so if your weak, you may need to opt for something lighter.
