Slayer Propel Max 12.5 Walkthrough: Innovative Design at its Finest

In-Fisherman Digital Editor, Thomas Allen, takes us through the notable features and clever design innovations of the Native Slayer Propel Max 12.5 in this full walkthrough.

IDEAL APPLICATION: The Max 12.5 specializes in freshwater and saltwater environments, making it a versatile kayak fishing platform. The Propel Pedal Drive 701 series offers smooth, lively, hands-free propulsion. Stability and capacity are strong suits, and both are departments of particular interest to tournament anglers as well as any anglers downsizing from powerboats.

OVERVIEW: The rotomolded bow hatch reveals a bucket well positioned for installing a battery and access for running transducer wiring. Bow-and-stern mounting provisions for accommodating a power anchor or electric motor. Heavy duty BMX style grips for transport. New spring-blade rudder in 2023 model. Dual horizontal rod storage with tip covers. Three molded vertical rodholders (two behind the seat, one at your right hand beside the seat). Paddle storage. Sidekick wheel transport system is a likely upgrade to consider; self-contained cart offering a simple route from your vehicle to the water.

NOTEWORTHY FEATURES: Under-seat sliding drawer. Dual electronic panels on either side of the angler. The panel is replaceable if you want to change your setup without drilling into your boat. MSRP: $2,999
