Chris Ogborne reviews the Channel Kayaks Pro —
“Sometimes you just need to look at a product to know that its right. One quick glance tells you that its designed for purpose, it all fits together as it should, that it will do the job its designed for and will never let you down. This kayak is one such product.
Channel Kayaks have obviously spent a lot of time getting it right. The first time I stepped into it I felt instantly at home, with everything designed around the seating position. The balance is perfect and the overall length is spot on for a fishing kayak – length is almost always a compromise but in this case its perfect. Somehow the designer has managed to achieve that elusive mix of straight line speed and stability without sacrificing the nimble feel that marks out the very best boats.
Fixtures and fittings are where this kayak really wins. On so many craft you have to indulge in a major financial outlay just to get going, but not here. The paddle is included, as is the supremely comfortable seat. The mid line hatch is a godsend as it swallows up fly or bait boxes, packed lunches and light tackle, whilst at the same time keeping these vital things in easy reach of the paddler.
The front hatch is as near waterproof as makes no matter and the rudder assembly is a doddle to use Above all, the rod holders are at exactly the right position, allowing easy change of rods or a switch from spinning to trolling within seconds.
This is the definitive fishing kayak. Its better than any other I’ve used in recent years and the bottom line is that its also less expensive than most of the big-name boats on the market. In my view, Channel Kayaks are on to a real winner in every sense.”
