    Additional info

    When looking at the hull design, stability was paramount, and the flat bottom with Pontoon Hull keeps the Kayak on an even keel and therefore allows confidence to sit or even stand easily. The shape and sleek lines in the hull design allow for much-needed speed and easy maneuverability. The Double Pontoon Hull allows the easy flow of water through the channels, increasing traction and increasing speed.

    The Shad has an easy-to-operate adjustable foot control or hand-controlled rudder system and the system is interchangeable from one system to another. The Deep adjustable rudder provides great direct action and limits drift therefore keeping the speed of the Kayak. As a bonus, the Rudder blades are compatible with the Bixpy motor.

    The Shad is equipped with a large equipment hatch at the Kayak’s bow, a round hatch behind the paddler, and a large Tank-Well in the stern, fitted with bungee cords to secure your load.

    The raised deluxe aluminum seating gives you a slightly elevated approach that assists with paddling and visibility and keeps you dry should there be excess water in the craft. The seating is adjustable to the front or the back and runs on a track system.

    The Shad designed for fishing; we added four embedded angled rod holders to assist with storage and rod positioning. Three accessory rails can take extra fishing rod holders, accessories, or a better still to mount your fish finder. A Fish Finder can be mounted to the Shad easily as there is spacing built into the Kayak’s hull for a transducer and cabling to run comfortably. The transducer plate protects your transducer and under the transducer plate, you will find pre-assembled inserts to secure your transducer.

    Overall, the Shad is a great kayak on both flat water, lakes, rivers, and smooth sea conditions. Its overall design will make your fishing experience fun.
