Eddy Gear Kayaks recently unveiled their new 2017 Stingray XL kayak with many upgraded features including a new elevated seating system. Day 20 of our 25 Days of Christmas Guide features a great kayak for that special angler in your life you wants an entry level kayak to get out on the water and catch fish!

The 2017 Stingray XL’s Are Here!

2017 Stingray

For 2017 Eddy-Gear has improved the Stingray XL line of fishing kayaks, added a pro-staff program, expanded our social presence, and has put together an epic Team of anglers, explorers, and hunters alike.

The biggest and most noticeable change to the 2017 Stingray XL is the new elevated seating system. This is probably one of the most popular upgrades we have yet to put out. We did a slow roll out in November with the Eddy-Gear Team Members, and then we decided in December to go ahead and release the stadium style elevated seat and the 2017 Eddy-Gear Stingray XL. The best part is that the new seating system will fit right into all previous versions of the Stingray XL. So for those looking to upgrade just the seat, we will have those ready on the site for individual sale sometime in early 2017. We will publicly announce this as soon as it is available. So far we have received great feedback with the new seating system, and of course a steady stream of interest from both current and future Stingray XL owners.

The accessory mounting points accept many after market accessories, such as the Railblaza Port. Our rudder system is a steel cable system, not nylon cable like some of our competitors. The included rudder system is pre-installed and ready to go. A load capacity of 670lbs, but the kayak only weighs in at 69lbs.
