Pelican International is famous for great kayaks at a great value. Their thermo-forming process allows them to create a lightweight boat that is light on the pocket book but not light on features. We were excited to get the Catch 120 NXT on the water at Outdoor Retailer. The big brother of the popular Catch 120, the NXT model adds more fishing accessories and a great new color: venom green! We were already in love with the Catch 120’s economic features and price point when it was released last year. With the 120 NXT, there is more to love. They’ve added deck padding to improve comfort and traction for all day stand-up paddling. A stern hatch makes this boat a capable camping vehicle. I really like the like Scotty’s new gear tracks on the gunnels and the deck. The gear tracks are made of Scotty’s super-tough plastic with beveled edges to reduce snags. To set the new boat apart, they created a new color: venom green. And added bright orange accents and rigging for an eye popping appeal. The Catch 120 NXT comes rigged for less than $900. Can’t wait to see what Pelican Internation cooks up next.
