The center seat position on my Tarpon 130T...
The center seat position on my Tarpon 130T has no back rest, just a seat indent. Can this back band be used so I can paddle solo in the tandem?
Funny...I just hung up from calling Wilderness on this same topic.
The lady that answered the phone finally let me talk to one of the managers. He said "yes" but did NOTrecommend using the Backband because the front seat's back straps can not be easily removed from their cleats so the connect/disconnect will be problematic. He suggested finding an aftermarket seat which I'm finding to be a PITA. :-)
You have to wonder why they created and promote the solo-seat "option" without at least offering a seatback similar to the clip-on tandem seatbacks sold with the 130T or, better yet, a easy way to move a tandem seatback to the solo position Oh well...
back rest of large proportions
This thing is huge. I build my own custom kayaks and I bought this to put in my touring boat. Super large size makes it harder to deal with. However, the size also helps because it supports your lower and middle back for all day comfort.
Bottom line, If your tired of your hips being sore after paddling your sit on top, get this and feel comforts warm embrace. Its worth every penny.
