Posted in the wrong forum earlier...

So decision time is very close! I plan on doing some fly fishing out of a kayak so I need something I can stand in. I am thinking my best two options are the Ride and the Slayer. If anyone has experience with either, or both, I could sure use some insight. What do you like, what do you not like, etc. I plan on going to PKS next weekend to purchase one after testing them all out.

Thanks!

I have a slayer 12 and I love it. I can easily stand in it and I really like the open deck. It has a lot of space for equipment and tons of rails to customize it how you want. The seat is also the second best in of all the kayaks, only the new pro angler seat is more comfortable in my opinion.

Do you ever find yourself wishing for below deck storage?

What about a Jackson Cruise 12. It comes with the same hull as the Cuda 12 but with a stripped down top. Some of my flyfishing friends prefer this model.

I just saw a reference to that one last night. I will look into it when I get home. Thank you!

Anchor trolley, paddle keeper. Got a blackpak, rod holders, gopro, mounts/pole, the usual stuff, I guess. Me and my son are so ready to go. Baseball tournaments every effin weekend is killing me. I think in 2 weeks we will have a weekend free, I hope. Hit me up if you get one, I'm looking for fishing buddies, I am new to kayaks, this is my first.

I will definitely be up for some fishing buddies. It's a matter of when, not if.

That's very nice of you. I could probably meet up with you Sunday or Monday afternoon...?

I have a slayer propel and it is great. You could easily fly fish out of it and I'm guessing that the paddle version of the Slayer would be even easier to fly fish from since there's no drive in the way
Did you get your Propel from PKS? Last time I was there, I think that's the only version of the Slayer he had.

Do you take it offshore a lot?

I bought my slayer 12 off this forum. I just ran a Wtb add and somebody called me the first day and sold me one. So when you decide which kayak you want you may consider running a Wtb add and see what people may have for sale
