Emotion Kayaks Mojo Angler
Emotion Kayaks worked with Jim Snyder to design a kayak that would meet the needs of kayak anglers everywhere. The wider platform combined with hard chines provide stability while paddling and fighting that trophy fish. The raised seat provides a better angle to see into the water. With an adjustable center-storage console that includes a dry box, drink holder, GPS holder and rod holder, all this kayak needs is an angler and a paddle. Specifications: length, 12 feet, 4 inches; width, 31 inches; weight, 52 lbs. As of 2009, the suggested retail price is $799.99.
Old Town Dirigo 120 Angler
Old Town set out to redesign the Dirigo Angler series in order to decrease weight and increase strength. The result is a 10 percent reduction in weight thanks to the three-layer polyethelene material used to build the hull. The ergonomic Extrasport XtraComfort seat is adjustable on deck for an ache-free ride. Other features include a glove box hatch, adjustable foot braces, deck-mounted rod holder and built-in anchor system. Specifications: length, 12 feet; width, 27 inches; weight, 48 lbs. As of 2009, the suggested retail price is $939.
