YakMan NC: Thanks for the video. I saw this today (11/23/13) at pickles for $330. Just
trying to find some reviews and opinions on it before I purchase.
101boxboyman: just took mine out today super stable the only problem is i didn't have the
scupper plugs in so the seat got water all over it
cervelo01: I have this kayak and it has been a great fishing kayak. To answer some of
the questions outthere, this kayak offers more than anything out there for
the price. Right now is priced at $549 which is still a good buy. As far as
stability, it is very stable but I am not willing to try to stand up until
warmer weather. As far as the milk carton option, I bought a tool
basket/carrier from Home Depot with multiple side pockets and I can put my
tackle, secure it and plenty of extras like power bars...
roroluvv: hahah phil you are serious about this kayak!!
mario texus: Mark, I also bought mine last year (In March). For some reason the camo
pattern was around $349 (100 less than the yellow one). Anyway, about the
carton, I couldn't find one that would fit so ended up modifying one to fit
poperly and I've posted a video of it.
phillyd823: @ brokebrad. I weight about the same. You will have no prob sitting sideways
Jonathan Maestas: Nice video! (@ 1:01 in the video -> That's what she said! I was laughing so
hard when you said that!)
phillyd823: Hey, sorry i havent responded. So far the kayak is great to fish in. Very
stable. However standing is a little difficult, but i can easily fish
sideways with my feet in the water. Be aware that the drainage holes near
the seat cause your butt to get a little wet. I may plug these when the
weather is a little Colder. The kayak cruises nice and is easy to.
Manuever. I would recommend this for someone that wants to get into kayak
fishing. Nothing more exciting then hookin and fightin a nice bass f
RickTorn: Kayaks like this are not made for standing. If you insist on standing while
fishing, get a jon boat, canoe, or a split tail kayak (very expensive).
Also check Ascend kayaks at Bass Pro Shops for great value.
mark lewis: tried standing up in mine yesterday in the pool. will need to practice more
for those days when the waves kick up. easy to reenter though if you fall
top40productions: Awesome, can't wait to get my one, this is the kayak I've decided upon.
dabbotube: Yea if your up north its 550$ because we live where the moneys at
mark lewis: bought mine last year in december on sale. will probably build a sail and
outriggers during the winter. heavy kayak for sure but carry it in the bed
of my Silverado tied down. only complaint is i can't find a milk carton
with small enough dimensions to fit in the back. so that form of a fishing
crate isn't in the picture.
Alejandro B: Do you get your coupons via mail or do you use your pickle's Scorecard?
Debbie Ann: I just purchased one at pickle's last night and took it out. Love it! Mine is
Rich G: Just picked up the same Kayak at pickles in Fort Lauderdale for $399 marked
down from $749.00 great deal , looking forward to hitting the canals and
ocean around town
SooperHBOMB: check out my eagle talon fishing video
mark lewis: has anyone bujilt a kayak dolly for the talon 12? if so could you describe
Sleven Kelevra: Im 6'0 and weight around 205 pounds. I want a kayak that I can hang my feet
over the side and fish. Would this be stable enough for me? You say that
you can hang your feet. How much do you weigh?
maciekz: how long do the batteries last when powering the fish finder?
cervelo01: cont from bottom comment...,monopod w camera, etc. I just bought a Lowrance
Elite 4X as well as a RAM mount. I will install it on the same location as
this video as the RAM mount is small and perfect for the center console. As
far as the transducer, I am designing a clamp for the front scupper hole.
Will see how that works. I am very interested to hear about this battery
pack; brand and whether you need a fuse or not? Thanks.
Drift and Crawl RC: How did you manage to get the front rod holder to go straight?
Ryan: Hey Phillyd823, I purcahsed the same kayak this year and plan on rigging it
a bit in the near future. Can you please elaborate on how you configured
your fish finder? Specifically where you placed your transducer. It does
not look like you did it through scupper so did you put it in the hull or
did you actually go through the hull?
Jim Oliver: Have you tried standing in it yet ? I am considering buying one of these
but have not read a real clear review about standing in this kayak. Its
down to this one or the Malibu stealth 12 at twice the price.
phillyd823: @bimini. Yeah, it's a great price for a 12' sit On top.
beechjet400xp: Bought 2 today at pickle's. $360 each with 10% credit card application
discount. Cheaper then buying them used. Ride nice & real stable. I can
stand up in it.
M1STERFister: I just got this kayak tonight. Little bit more expensive but I am excited
about it. How has it worked for you so far?
maciekz: Couple questions. I am very close to picking up one of these. 1. When did
you buy that it was $399? Right now, it's listed for $549 at pickles.com. 2.
How well does it track? 3. How is the stability? 4. You've had some time to
get a feel for the seat. How good/bad is it? Thanks!
yakangler757: i love my talon ive used it for small lakes all the way up to 25 miles out
for red fish etc.....just wish there were more vids on here about them but
anyways it takes a while to stand up in it getting the right foot positions
down but over all its fairly easy .......do you have your fish finder
mounted on a ram mount or straight to the yak? how did you rig your battery
bank i have a 12v but looking to shave the weight off so just wondering
Michael Lankford: Pull Upon the Shaft of the holder and you can turn it anyway you want it to
