Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 Angler Kayak 2015 Features
If you are interested in this kayak but not certain that it is the proper choice for you, then let me help you out with a glimpse at its features.
When you buy this yak, you get one Yak Attack Mighty Mount, one Yak Attack 1.5 in. Screwball, one Yak Attack 1 in. Screwball, and one Yak Attack Zooka. Keepers XL foot brace system allows for quick and easy adjustment for leg length. Paddle Park bungee on the bow and paddle holder on the side lets you take a break.
It has a Phase 3 AirPro sit-on-top seat that provides back stability, ventilation, and drainage without limiting stroke. The Midship and bow Orbix hatches have been redesigned to be better sealing and lower profile to keep your smaller gear safe and dry. Gear storage pockets and a molded-in cup holder let you keep the important things close by and easy to get to.
I find that the padded handles make it easy to carry the boat. It is also rudder-ready for when you’re ready to take your paddling to the next level (rudder kit sold separately).
Bottom line: this kayak is rigged for fishing, packed with features, tracks well and keeps all your gear dry. Overall, an awesome fishing kayak for the money.
