Are Inflatable Kayaks Any Good? NRS Pike Walkthrough and Features
Florida Sportsman Executive Editor Jeff Weakley explains how inflatable kayaks work and touches on the benefits and drawbacks they present. NRS counteracts the usual drawbacks of inflatable kayaks by offering the Pro Package on the NRS Pike which includes five YakAttack accessory mounts to customize your inflatable to perfectly fit your needs. You will also receive a 2-piece NRS Ripple Kayak Paddle with the Pro Package.
IDEAL APPLICATION: The NRS Pike Inflatable Fishing Kayak is rigged and ready to catch the adventure in remote waters. With unique design elements for enhanced on-the-water performance, the Pike also features limitless rigging options to fit your fishing style.
OVERVIEW: With a bit more side tube diameter than the Kuda series (also from NRS), adjustable foot braces and the rigid keel insert in the bow, the Pike fishes very much like a conventional kayak, paddling surely and smoothly alongside any rotomolded companions you may encounter on a trip. With options for different skegs (fins), YakAttack accessory mounts, bungee web, and numerous tie-down points, it’s easy to add what you need for a day of fishing.
NOTEWORTHY FEATURES: Combines a high-pressure 4-inch drop-stitch deck that inflates to 8 PSI with 10.5-inch side tubes to create a super stable platform to sit, stand or move around as you cast. A rigid keel insert in the bow provides enhanced tracking on flat water. MSRP: $1,395
