Hi, Welcome to KFNZ! Sorry but I can't say I know the Kingi kayak :( Do you have a link to it somewhere?

That'd be these ones, Mental

I've heard of them, but never seen a full review by someone who knows a bit about kayaks and kayak fishing.

As is the constant message .... be aware of warranty support or lack thereof and try before you buy !
If you can't get hold of the guy then I'd be steering well clear !!

They look like they hit the market not even a year ago so probably don't have many reviews yet. There's a handful amongst the community posts on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/kingikayaks ... e_internal

Aggressively competitive prices though, could be worth a nudge if you're on a budget.

I just bought one from http://www.wavepassion.co.nz and I can't say enough good things about this place, I bought an Elite4 Fish Master Fishing Kayak Package with Trolley.

The owner, Jason was more than helpful and if I had to get another Kayak, I'd go back to Wave Passion. They also do SUPs (stand up paddle boards).

Cheers, I hope this helps.
