Jackson Kayak is adding more teeth to its popular Cuda kayak design and will introduce the Cuda HD at the ICAST show in Orlando this week. The new Cuda HD is longer, more stable and includes more high performance features than the original.

Included in the Cuda HD upgrades:

Longer length – 12'10" for enhanced stability
Increased width – 32.5" for enhanced stability
Elite Seat 3.0 System with Hi-Low and Fore-Aft trimming for better comfort
Rod tip tubes to protect gear
New hinging bow hatch system
Various standard RAM and flush mount rod holders
YakAttack track systems to add accessories and customize placement within reach
Standing pad for comfort when sight fishing
Designed to easily add on Raymarine® and Power-Pole® accessories for customization.

The Cuda HD is designed for top performance in inshore and lake environments. The hull design features a low profile which reduces the effect of wind and a faster hull design which provides a nice balance between speed and stability. A wider hull creates a more stable standing platform and makes the Cuda HD well-suited for larger paddlers, beginners and more gear. The new Elite Seat 3.0 System has multiple hi/lo positions and can move forward and aft for self trimming. A Plano tackle box comes standard and fits comfortably in the underseat storage pockets. The seat can also be removed for use as a chair on shore.

Editor’s Note: Operated by the American Sportfishing Association, the ICAST show is the top tackle and fishing show in America and annually draws the top names and products in the industry. Kayak Fish will be at the show and will offer continuous coverage all week on the best of the new fishing tackle and, of course, fishing kayaks and accessories.
