Kestrel 120 OC
These are no longer available. I am leaving this information up in case I get a used one or a blem in. The Kestrel 120 OC (Open Cockpit) is a super recreational kayak designed for those who like to feel free in their boat.
Featuring a super spacious open cockpit for even easier entry and exit, it'll hold all the gear you need in it's accessible storage compartments. Perfect for the kayak fisherman, it has stability enough to battle the biggest fresh and salt water species. Also great for those leisurely group floats down your favorite little river. The Kestrel 120 OC is just plain and simple fun for all.
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.
