Specifications for Grand Slam Angler



Grand Slam Angler


14ft. 5in.



This kayak is such a good deal even at full retail that it is hard to beat. And if you want the non fishing version without the rod holders save another $70. You can have it with or without a rudder. The rudder adds $180 to the sale price. When Canoe and Kayak magazine says Emotion hit a grand slam with this fishing kayak they were right on home plate. This kayak runs fast, straight and stable. Even an old arthritic guy like me can stand up and fly fish for Musky in this kayak and it can hold a ton and still run dry. It is best suited for somewhat larger bodies of water but with the optional rudder it works wonderfully even in tight places. It is highly amenable to adding all the gear you may want like an anchor, live well, GPS and fish locater. If you want the ultimate in a larger more capable fishing kayak this one will give you what you want and do it at a very reasonable price.





Kayaks are available in several kinds of materials and with different construction methods:

Composite kayaks are made from fiberglass, kevlar and graphite in different combinations. Fiberglass, is very durable and makes a strong and economical kayak.Kevlar is lighter and very tough so less needs to be used to make a strong and very durable kayak. Graphite is even lighter than kevlar and is used in strategic locations on some models.

Plastic, Super Compound Linear Polyethylene, (SCL) is extremely tough and durable. It is used in the rotomolded models. Cuts or breaks are so rare I have never seen one, even on white water boats. UV inhibitors are blended in to protect from the sun. This is the most economical durable material Current Designs kayaks are built with. The down side is a little bit of flex and a bit more extra weight.

Thermoformed Composite System (TCS). These are made from an Acrylic and ABS plastic laminate. This plastic is stiffer and lighter than SCL polyethylene. It has the look and light weight of a fiberglass kayak, but costs less. For a more in depth description of these materials the Current Designs web site, or a catalog will help.
