KC Kayak

Reply
Recently I stopped by the Cabelas’ in Gonzales and saw the KC kayak had some upgrades. I noticed the deck padding was different and there was a new dry hatch storage. The deck pads gave the kayak a clean look, but not to mention a firm grip when standing. The dry hatch had a nice rubber gasket seal and to open it, it just took one press down and slight twist to left (very convenient when fishing). I bought one of the first KC kayaks a few years ago and she still holds really strong. I use my kayak every week and love to have all the new features on the market to make life more enjoyable on the water. I decided to contact them and ask them about the padding and hatch. They told me their goal was to improve their kayaks at all cost in time and mentioned a new kayak about to hit the market called the “Scout”. I also asked them if they had padding for the triangle part in the middle to cover up since I did not use my kayak to hunt. They told me they did and I decided to go ahead and purchase the new products .There was absolutely no water in the hatch (even after spraying with a hose) and the padding gave it the right touch to what I needed in the kayak. I had the parts within a few days and the guys said if I ever have a problem with a kayak to just give them a call. All the other kayaks I have used, I have never had this type of service

I watched a video about this kayak and I want to test fish one. It looked stable enough to do jumping jacks on it. I just looked at cabelas website and no KC Kayaks. They must only have them in Gonzales because the company is local.

Yeah they are at a few Cabelas’ and local retailers. They also sell them at a Songys' Sporting Good in Houma. I think because they are not at every Cabelas' they are not listed online. I know they sell them throughout different states. Just contact them and give them your location and they could direct you. I have been in every kayak on the Market, and the only close kayak as stable is the Diablo, but the problem is the Diablo cannot attach a trolling motor and cannot hold nearly the weight the KC can. They say the KC max weight is 450, and I have had more weight in it before and was fine. Every other kayak I have been is either shaky or I have to be very careful when standing. I can hop up at any time when fishing and do not have to worry about falling out. I have paddle through major boat traffic and was fine. Of course the Pro Angler is stable, but for most people it is just too pricey. They also allow you to attach a boat seat and rig your kayak however you want. I paddled across the Pensacola Bay and just about the whole time I was standing up fishing, simply because I was using a popping cork for the most part. For the cost of the kayak, customer service, and features it is by far my favorite Kayak.
