They had one of those at the KC boat show last weekend and I spent quite a bit of time checking it out. I'm a canoe guy, but I gotta say, that's a sweet kayak. If they weren't so expensive I'd buy one.

Of course they still have the lack of rod storage problem and you can haul more gear in any canoe than that Jackson. But I think it would really be pushing it to try to run the rapids in that video in a canoe...fortunately (or unfortunately, depending how you look at it) we don't have anything like that in MO to worry about.

Great. Now I can't wait for it to warm up so I can get my new Tarpon 140 set up and get out there fishing.

There's a fine line between fishing and sitting there looking stupid.

It's always the cost for some reason that shoots it down. Maybe some day though, it does look sweet.

They do cost a LOT, and having rod tips dangle over the side is always a problem. Having the ability to stand up and fish, and be able to run standing wave trains like that would be sweet. Maybe when I hit the lottery.

i've been looking at this kayak as a 2nd ride, especially for rivers, as my trident 13 is great for lakes and open water but a bit of a challenge to manuever in flowing water. I'm hoping they'll have one at the st louis boat show so i can check it out first hand. i've seen it msrp'd at $900 which really isn't that bad.

something i really like is the raised seat that way you aren't sitting on wet seat all day. it's also really wide and stable which is nice for standing. i can do that with no problem in my trident but with the raised seat of the coosa it would be a lot faster and easier. it's not a kayak i would buy if i wanted one for lakes and rivers as the high profile would be hell in wind.

Or get out of school.

We have gone to Jackson kayaks in our business and visited the factory in Sparta Tn. this fall. The kayaks are solid as a rock and a bunch of good people working at a good ol' American factory. They are continually developing new models and really have their act together. Sometimes easier to spend your hard earned money if you know it's staying at home instead of overseas (not that overseas is bad, they need money too I guess).
