Cuda HD Rudder Ready Kayak
New to the Jackson Kayak line of fishing kayaks is the Cuda HD Rudder Ready Kayak. A more feature-rich and heavy duty version of the Cuda 12, this kayak has a longer and slightly wider size than the Cuda 12, giving you increased stability when standing and better tracking and speed as you glide through the water. But better performance in the water is just part of the story that this kayak tells, thanks to its seemingly endless layout of fishing features. New molded rod tubes give you an easy and safe place to place a rod when not in use, while a versatile Omega rod holder secures rods of a wide number of sizes and disciplines. The full standing pad offers comfort, stability, and sound dampening when you want to fish from a standing position, and Power-Pole Micro Anchor compatibility allows you to weigh anchor in an instant when you spy a fish.
Key to the Cuda HD is the new Elite Seat system. Capable of high or low seating, fore and aft trimming, and featuring super comfortable Therm-a-rest lumbar support, this seat ranks highly on both function and comfort. It's also got a MOLLE seatback pouch that clips on easily and gives you quick access to important gear. You'll find YakAttack gear tracks on either side of the boat in both the front and rear, ensuring that you'll have tons of options for mounting accessories on the water. When you find the perfect fishing spot and want to stash your paddles, the front hatch has a snag-free Hypalon blade keeper that securely holds your paddles while still keeping them within arms reach. A new center hatch and under-seat sliding tray give you more options for storage, and an included Orion tumbler lets you cool off with your favorite drink on a hot day.
