So which Native Watercraft Propel driven kayak should I buy?
When you look at the two boats on paper they are really close in both carrying capacity and size. The differences are much more apparent though when you view them side by side. The Slayer Propel is a sit on top and the Ultimate FX Propel is a sit inside. That means you get a dryer and lighter ride in the Ultimate, but you get an unsinkable boat in the Slayer Propel. I don't see many scenarios when a kayak angler would have to worry about flipping something as stout as the Ultimate FX Propel, but if you frequent the Great Lakes or the ocean I think the Slayer Propel is the better choice. For many anglers that won't even be an issue so the Ultimate FX Propel would make sense, but for me I just don't want to risk it when out on big bodies of water.
That's about it for my thoughts on which is the better boat. If you frequent bodies of water which could put you in situations where flipping the kayak comes with the territory buy the Slayer Propel. If flipping isn't an issue where you fish pick up the Ultimate FX Propel. Neither boat from Native Watercraft will disappoint it's owner, they are just built to do different things well.

The best thing you could do is get a hold of your local paddle shop and test paddle both of them. That is the only way you'll figure out which of these two amazing kayaks is right for you.
