Jackson Kayak Releases New Glow-in-the-Dark Color Series

Industry leading kayak fishing fleet now available in a hue that glows after dark.



From Jackson Kayak Press Release



Jackson Kayak has launched its Illuminati glow-in-the-dark fishing kayak series this past week in Rock Island, Tennessee. Using its annual Dealer Summit as a launching pad, Jackson Kayak President, Eric Jackson, unveiled its new color option for their fishing fleet, Illuminati. After charging on any light source, any of Jackson Kayak's core fishing series built with Illuminati will glow for hours after dark.



The glow in the dark option for colors was developed for both convenience and wow factors. Illuminating kayaks can be seen from a great distance, allow for gear to be viewed with relative ease on the deck after dark and can key for fishing species that come out only at dusk.



“We developed this option for those late night cruises, for those who find themselves in the middle of the river or lake after dark, finding your gear on a luminescent deck, for those traveling on overnights and in open seas where being seen by buddies is key” states James McBeath, Marketing Director, “but mostly we find it simply the coolest thing on water after dark!”



"The Illuminati series is a surreal experience when on the water, but that cool factor is not the only reason we feel it will be a difference maker with anglers,” states Drew Gregory, Jackson Kayak fishing guru. “There are many functional uses, including better visibility to others while on the water, enough glow light to do most tasks without the use of a head lamp, and if you drop any lights inside the translucent hull it really beams like Casper to draw in those bait fish!!"



While auxiliary lighting is still required to meet USCG regulations, the Illuminati series adds additional visibility that can be both handy and add an additional margin of safety in many situations. The Illuminati kayak series begins with the kayak fishing fleet that includes the Coosa, Cuda 12, Cuda 14 and the Big Tuna. These kayaks are immediately available at all of Jackson Kayak's fishing dealers at an additional cost of $200.
