Eddyline has been making beautiful thermoformed kayaks for years, but most anglers passed up the pretty boats for hardy rotomolded brawlers. The company’s new C-135 is getting a lot of attention from the press and anglers. Winner of the 2015 ICAST Best of Show and Best Boat awards, the accolades and anticipation are building around this boat. To start, the 13-foot kayak comes in a variety of eye-catching, sparkly colors.
Kicking the tires reveals that the fit is as fine as the finish with scuppers, inserts and body sections joined seamlessly. The base model is ready for customization with plenty of flat areas and attachment points. The boat was sleek and light, even if it is tall and wide making it fast and stable. At 69 pounds, this full-size kayak is on a strict diet. The boat comes with a tackle console that doubles as a center hatch or electronics station.
The front hatch can be used to store gear or fishing rods. A four-position seat can be placed low, high, reclined or folded out of the way. The stern is designed to accept a BassYaks or Torqueedo motor. The hull uses a pontoon design to improve stability and tracking without increasing drag or dampening performance. The YakAttack edition comes out of the factory primped for fishing. This top-of-the-line model comes with YakAttack’s GearTracs, a special edition BlackPak, VisiCarbon Pro Light, paddle holders and more.
