SS127 Kayak


From the creator of YakAttack, Bonafide Kayaks hits the kayak fishing market with 2 inaugural boats. The SS127 is one of those. It’s the longer, 12’7″ in the “Sit Stand” series from Bonafide. This kayak is built from the ground up and manufactured in the USA. Everything from the hull, seat, padding, accessories, even down to the screws that come standard on this kayak are all 100% made in the USA! This kayak was designed to be extremely stable and provide ultimate fishability! By being 12’7″ this boat tracks extremely well and makes covering larger bodies of water a breeze. From the handle, to the seat, to the overall hull design, every detail went into consideration and a thorough design process to bring anglers an excellent fishing kayak. One of the most notable features is the seat. Designed to sit higher than most kayaks, it gives anglers a better vantage point which is very useful for sight fishing. Another feature the sticks out is the rod organizer on the hatch and the grooves designed into the hatch itself, these allow your fishing rods to lay naturally from the hatch back to your seat. Available in 4 colors (Cool Hand blue, Top Gun Grey, True Grit Sand, and Hondo Orange) the SS127 is packed with a ton of features that will accommodate any angler for a fun day out on the water.

    Can see that a lot of thought went into this kayak. I love the fact that it is in the USA. The weight is great for the length. It looks as though the stern is designed to fit a trolling motor. Great looking kayak.

    I haven’t heard or scene anything about flats fishing and paddling in wind on the big inshore flats. Why isn’t there any talk of catching redfish if this thing is made for sight fishing
