     This week Native Watercraft announced a new kayak at the Outdoor Retailer Show.  It will be called the Titan Propel 13.5 and I haven't been able to focus on anything else since the photos and videos have started rolling in on social media.  The new kayak promises to be able to compete head to head with the Pro Angler from Hobie Cat.  I'm stupid excited about this because this new boat addresses all of my perceived shortcomings relating to my current rig the Slayer Propel 13.  Let's take a look at what the Titan Propel 13.5 kayak has to offer.

     The Titan Propel 13.5 will be released with a length of around 13 1/2 feet (obviously).  The width is a staggering 42 inches!  Talk about a roomy and spacious water craft.  You should be able to stand and even turn around easily on this kayak.  The boat is of course rotomolded plastic for strength and features the ever popular Propel pedal drive to move it along.  A beefy hand controlled rudder is a given and the factory promises great steering and a reasonable turning radius.  It will be a bit of a bear to paddle similar to the Pro Angler, but to be honest nobody will buying this boat because of how well it paddles.  No word yet on color options, but watch the video below to see some of the features that are integrated into the Titan Propel 13.5.

     This new kayak will be a game changer for many of us in the Native Watercraft Tribe.  For years many of us have been clamoring for a larger more angler friendly kayak that would allow us to compete on the same playing field as the Pro Angler owners.  With integrated rod storage, full sliding high rise seat, dual micro anchor mounts, and the ability to store a full size paddle conveniently and out of the way the Titan Propel 13.5 is going to be a force to reckon with out on the water.  The factory is currently chasing a March 1st production release date so you have a little time to start saving some money.  I plan to be one of the first on the list when the Titan Propel 13.5 starts rolling out the door.  Until then I'll be paddling my lighter and smaller Slayer Propel 13 which seems like a crazy thing to be saying.
Soon this Slayer will be my lighter, faster boat!
