Great to meet you this morning Brent, and thanks for the opportunity to test drive a couple of the Jackson yaks.
Got to say I really liked the Kraken. I had images of myself launching at Leigh, filling the live bait tank with kingfish candy and having a ball out at the reef. :rock:

Yes, nice to meet you today and see the new Jackson Yaks ïn the flesh" and to take them for a paddle.

The seating arrangement is quite different but comfortable and stable...

As Tech has said I can see them being very practical for those that want to / like to do a lot of live bait fishing.

Hopefully more people turned up for a look after we left !

Thanks for bringing the Jackson Kayaks down to Auckland Brent :y: Great to finally see them in the flesh and take them for a spin.

Both the Cuda and Kraken are well put together kayaks, feature rich, well finished, and obviously a lot of thought has been put into the design! The Cuda is a great inshore kayak not for for due to my current kayak arsenal but would suit many kayak anglers :y: The Kraken sure is an offshore battleship, with the included J-Krate rigged as a live boat tank this would have to be the best Kingi platform I've seen from a kayak so far! At a shade under 4.8m it's a beast but if you treat it as so and don't expect the lightest kayak in the world off the water and can get over that you'll be very happy with it's performance on the water :y: I'm honestly going to have to seriously consider adding one of these to the fleet (and I don't think I'll be the only one eh Tech..?)

Here's a few quick pics I took this morning >
