Pedal to the fishing spot.
Catch the biggest fish using foot propulsion with the Jackson Coosa FD Kayak with Flex Drive. A wide, stable hull and 12ft 7in length allow the Coosa to perform well on both rivers and lakes. With a sit-on-top design, the boat is stable enough to stand on while fishing, but it is also fitted with a hi/lo seating system that allows you to pop a squat when your legs get tired. While seated, the High Ergo Seat keeps your back supported while the MOLLE system keeps you cool thanks to a breathable 3D mesh fabric. And, by using the FD, you can propel with your feet, leaving your hands free to cast, reel, and retrieve all the whoppers that are just a few feet below.

- Q & A
More Work than Pleasure
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I tried to give this pedal drive kayak the benefit of the doubt after trying it on the water twice. It was very disappointing. The thing is ultra heavy at over 100# w/o gear. The pedals ride very high and you must put the seat in high position to get enough torque to push them through the water. It was very hard to pedal. I have nothing to compare it to as far as pedal drive, but it is hard to fathom that any other kayak would be so hard to pedal. The finishing touches on it are also disappointing. The pin that holds the seat in position could not be removed without a pliers. Once I did that, the holes had to be redrilled, right out of the box. There is also a poorly designed "pan" that sits under seat and does nothing but hold water w/o any holes to drain the water. Not even sure what its purpose might be. I have owned 2 other Jackson fishing kayaks and was very happy with them. I sold both of them to make way for this beast .and I made a huge mistake. I shipped it back and it cost me $349 as R/T shipping was not refunded but Backcountry was great.
